St. Cloud Makes Forbes List For ‘Business and Careers’

Downtown St. Cloud

ST. CLOUD – Forbes has named St. Cloud as one of the “Best Small Places For Business and Careers“.  St. Cloud is ranked 55th on the list.

The magazine cites the city’s historical business district, several higher education facilities, and the Mississippi River as assets.

St. Cloud’s cost of living is 10.2 percent below the national average. Job growth is at 2 percent. Unemployment is at 5.7 percent. The median home price is just over $120,000.  And, the median household income is just over $50,000.
