Every major agricultural or industrial company in the Midwest outside of larger cities like Minneapolis, however, is a prospect, according to urbanologist Aaron Renn.

Why Corporate America Is Leaving the Suburbs for the City - The New York Times
For decades, many of the nation’s biggest companies staked their futures far from the fraying downtowns of aging East Coast and Midwestern cities. One after another, they decamped for sprawling campuses in the suburbs and exurbs.

In June, McDonald’s joined a long list of companies that are returning to downtown Chicago from suburbs like Oak Brook, Northfield and Schaumburg.
