KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Regal Entertainment Group announced Friday their new corporate headquarters will be located at Knoxville’s South Waterfront.
Regal is the largest US movie theater chain. It expects to create 75 new jobs.
“We want to congratulate and thank Regal Entertainment Group on their long-term commitment to Tennessee and the new jobs that will be created in Knoxville,” Governor Bill Haslam said.
“Regal is a company that could do business anywhere in the country, and when a company like Regal chooses Tennessee over the rest of the country it sends the message that we can and will compete with anyone, and we are grateful that they will be here for years to come,” the governor continued.
The Regal Entertainment headquarters will occupy a nine-story, 178,000-square-foot building at the east end of the former site of Baptist Hospital along Knoxville’s rapidly redeveloping South Waterfront.
