Approximately one year after relocating its corporate headquarters from Arizona to Tennessee, addiction recovery services provider Landmark Recovery will invest $7.5 million to expand its headquarters in Franklin. The expansion project will create 1,300 new jobs in Williamson County.
Landmark Recovery provides individualized treatment for patients dealing with substance abuse. The expansion will allow Landmark to better serve the growing number of treatment facilities the company owns and operates across the U.S., including Landmark’s newly opened treatment center in Knoxville.
“The framework for business expansion and support laid by Governor Lee’s administration was the catalyst in Landmark Recovery’s decision to relocate from Arizona to Tennessee and to expand our headquarters in Franklin,” said Josh Hatch, chief growth officer, Landmark Recovery. “The culture of collaboration Commissioner McWhorter and his team of esteemed professionals from TNECD and those from TVA and Williamson County are world-class. The welcome Landmark Recovery has received over the past year has been transformative to our business model, and we are deeply appreciative of all the public and private partnerships who work diligently to make Tennessee a magnet for business and innovation.”
Since 2018, the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) has supported more than 20 economic development projects in Williamson County, resulting in approximately 2,900 job commitments and $193 million in capital investment.
“Supporting the businesses that call Tennessee home is a crucial part of our role at TNECD, and we are proud to partner with Landmark as this company expands its headquarters operations in Franklin,” commented TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter. “Today’s announcement is a major win for our state, and we appreciate Williamson Inc. and TVA for their efforts in bringing this expansion to fruition.”

Founded in 2014 by Italian-based Ferrari Stampi, Ferrari Stampi USA Inc. specializes in the production and manufacturing of mold and die for ceramic tiles.
