Tourism Saves each Coffee County household $414 in Taxes Over 2019

Coffee County continues to trend in the right direction ranking 21st in the state of Tennessee in Tourism Expenditures, the first county in the rankings that does not operate a Convention and Visitors Bureau. 

In 2019 each household across Coffee County saved $414.16 in local taxes thanks to tourism expenditures, up from $396.92 in 2018. This is the result of $104.46 MILLION in direct tourism expenditures. Of those expenditures, some 824 jobs were created with $20.94 million in payroll, $2.71 million in local tax revenue, and $6.25 million in state tax revenue. 

On average some $286,185 is spent by visitors daily in Coffee County reeling in $7,415 in local taxes and $17,123 in state taxes each day.

Ryan French, Chairman of Manchester Tourism & Community Development said, “Coffee County and the southern middle Tennessee region continues to see fantastic growth in tourism expenditures. This is very much the result of a regional effort and folks visiting for music, sports, outdoors, and unique regional destinations. 

French added, “When looking at Coffee County tourism we can thank local partners like the George Dickel, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, the Manchester – Coffee County Conference Center, Old Stone Fort State Park, and regional partners like Jack Daniels, Tims Ford State Park, The Caverns, South Cumberland State Park, and many more. 

French finished his statement by saying, “All of these efforts are supported by visitors stopping to take in a great meal at our local restaurants, finding unique shopping experiences in our shops and boutiques, and most importantly feeling welcomed by the southern charm and hospitality that makes our community unique and Manchester a small town with a big soul!”
