GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - It's more than just a business, it's jobs and opportunity coming to Gadsden County.

Truck dealer Four Star Freightliner broke ground on its 7th location this afternoon.

Four Star Freightliner has other locations in the southeast, including Tallahassee, Tifton and Valdosta.

Today, the Gadsden County Development Council, along with Governor Scott and other local officials, celebrated, welcoming another company to the county.

The governor applauded the community for encouraging economic growth in the Sunshine State.

"What does every family care about? Jobs. They want to get to work. I have not met anybody getting out of high school that said, 'You know, I'm really looking forward to unemployment. That public housing is where I want to live. Food stamps are for me.' They don't. Everybody wants to work," said Governor Rick Scott. "I travel the state and try to do everything I can to promote job creation, and this community has clearly done that -- the city, the county, everybody involved."

Four Star Freightliner will start construction in mid-February at its location on brickyard road east, bringing 10 jobs to the county.
