Livability East Central Indiana

From a chocolate trail in Richmond to the gym in Knightstown made popular by the 1986 movie “Hoosiers,” the East Central Indiana region is a Midwest gem, chock-full of opportunities and activities.

Careers, especially in glass manufacturing, are high here. Ardagh Group, a global leader in sustainable packaging solutions, has metal and glass production facilities in Jay, Randolph and Grant counties. Additionally, Reid Health, IU Health and Ball State are key players in the area’s robust economy. Plus, thanks to the numerous available entrepreneurial resources, such as Ball State’s Entrepreneurship Center and Indiana University East’s Business Opportunities for Self-Starters program, startups thrive in this region.

Plus, you can’t talk about East Central Indiana and not mention its must-try cuisine scene. Caribbean jerk meatballs at Lil Bistro in Redkey are just one of many local favorites. And if you get a little thirsty, a cup of joe at HomeTown Coffee in Winchester or a cold one from Bad Dad Brewing Co. in Fairmount are always just one pour away.
