The company has confirmed it is leasing office space in Georgia, Texas, and Arizona.
So, the slogan, "Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm is There," is raising questions locally.
Especially since the insurance giant is expanding to places outside the state.
A statement released by its Public Affairs Department says:
"State Farm continues to review its facilities, looking to ensure employees are in the right places to provide the best service possible for our customers."
"We certainly hope they continue to grow, because as a growing expanding company that's the right direction for any organization," said Charlie Moore.
Moore, who is the President and CEO of the McLean County Chamber of Commerce, says the corporation's large presence in Bloomington supports the small businesses he's trying to grow.
"We're very grateful to have State Farm in our backyard to have their headquarters right here in McLean County."
From the reports being released by media outlets down south...
So are they.
While State Farm is assuring its headquarters which employs 15,000 people will stay put in Bloomington, it has secured 1.5 million square feet of office space in Dallas.
But it's still unknown what jobs will be put there.
State Farm says decisions will be made over time; some will be happening sooner, others, years later."
In the meantime, local experts, like Moore are continuing to market the area to potential businesses, in hopes of keeping the economy strong.
He says there are many reasons why the Twin Cities is a great place to set up shop.
"We are a transportation hub, we have three major interstates, we have an airport, we have trains, we have high speed rail coming," lists Moore. "We have a number of different reasons why doing business in McLean County makes sense."
But he, along with others is thankful to keep State Farm as a nearby neighbor.
