Red Stag's First Sweetwater Warehouse Opens in September
Development has progressed steadily on the 420-acre project since June 2021. The first 700,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space is scheduled to be operational in September 2022 and team member positions will open in August to staff the space.
On May 4th, 2022, Red Stag Fulfillment leadership hosted a groundbreaking ceremony with Tennessee Governor Bill Lee to celebrate the progress made to date.

Sweetwater project updates
A PART OF YOUR COMMUNITY
Red Stag’s company culture defines who we are and how we treat our local communities. We want to be a welcomed part of Sweetwater, providing high-quality opportunities to our neighbors. Once complete, the project is expected to increase Sweetwater’s annual tax revenue by an estimated 33% to help fund schools, public services, and first responders.
And when our new campus is operational, you’ll find many of us in town and in your businesses, too. That means we’re always open to restaurant recommendations and want to hear when you have concerns.

We’ve done our homework and found Sweetwater to be the right mix of available space, easy access to the interstate, and home to great people. Plus, being based in Knoxville, we’ve got a sweet spot for the area.
Or, as Mollenhour Gross Co-Founder Jordan Mollenhour puts it:
“Having grown up in East Tennessee, we are committed to maintaining an open line of communication and to helping this region become home to firms like Red Stag. We simply ask that everyone take the time to understand the project and what it means for the community – it really is an incredible opportunity for Sweetwater and for our native East Tennessee.”
We hope to help Sweetwater grow in multiple ways. Not only do we expect to bring more people to your stores and community, but there should also be a sizable economic impact. Here are our latest estimates:
- $300 million investment
- Hundreds of new employment and career opportunities
- $1.9 million annual tax contributions to Sweetwater
- $3.6 million annual tax contributions to Monroe County
- $3.3 million annual tax contributions to the State of Tennessee
These estimates do not include additional benefits that will arise from increased patronage of local restaurants, retailers, gas stations, and other businesses within the Sweetwater community. These are projected to generate income for businesses in the area and further increase the tax base.
