News reports say Mississippi's first Tesla dealership is coming to... Brandon... right off I-20.

Normally I would have guessed that Tesla would come to Ridgeland, near where the Mercedes dealership just located. Which leads me to think, or at least wonder, whether the developers building the Tesla dealership know something that we don't. In short, is Brandon poised to become the top city in the Jackson metro area?

The city of Brandon first served notice with the new amphitheater, which we assumed at the time would be a one-off. They built a top of the line sports park for kids with nice trails for bikers and walkers, okay fine. And they are steadily beginning to build out their downtown to make it more charming, adding in more restaurants. Now we're talking.

The East Metro Parkway soon opens at Crossgates Blvd exit, connecting Brandon to Lakeland at Dogwood. And the Grants Ferry Parkway (running from Grants Ferry to Brandon's east side I-20 exit) is set to open in the next year or so, and is supposed to be Brandon's Highland Colony Parkway.

I'm wondering if Madison and Ridgeland have been caught slacking, while their neighbor to the east is has hit the throttle and is about to race past them.

Brandon has a lot of positives for sure. Great location within the metro area, to truly take advantage of proximity to Jackson, yet have their own County government. Great access to Flowood retail, so they don't need to spend money on their own. They need to be investing in quality-of-life things.

I don't think getting a Tesla dealership is the yardstick for one upping neighboring suburbs. It's certainly not going to change Madison's status as the city with the highest household income in the state. Brandon has better access to I-20 which could be a deciding factor in all of this.

There is (was?) some type of Tesla operation across Airport Road from Miskellys.
