When your local business presence isn’t enough, Nextiva takes you where your customers are.
If your business is ready to expand in Minnesota, consider using a Minneapolis area code to get the job done. Area code 612 will let you tap into the economy of the biggest city in the state. Minneapolis has an estimated population of 413,000 people and sprawls across 58 square miles. Located in Hennepin County in the central part of Minnesota, area code 612 also covers the cities of Richfield, Fort Snelling and St. Anthony. Minneapolis is near the Wisconsin border and sits only 10 miles from the capital city of St. Paul, 376 miles from Milwaukee, and 458 miles from Chicago.
Minneapolis, Minnesota was founded by John H. Stevens and Franklin Steele, and incorporated in 1867. The population growth started when the US Government promoted the rich territory to settlers, and continued with the first railroad connection to Chicago. Minneapolis residents used the St. Anthony Waterfall to mill grain and became a milling “superpower” in the US when General Mills was founded in the city.
Unfortunately, Minneapolis suffered during the Great Depression and struggled economically and socially for decades afterward. However, it bounced back and has since become the largest city in Minnesota and 49th largest in the United States.
The Minneapolis area code contains six Fortune 500 companies, including heavy hitters like Target and General Mills. The other four are U.S Bancorp, Ameriprise Financial, Xcel Energy, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. Area code 612 is also home to three more companies on the Fortune 1000 list. Valspar, a paint company, Donaldson, an engine and industrial machines business, and Buffalo Wild Wings all made the 2017 roundup.
Minneapolis was chosen as the base for many major corporations because of its close proximity to St. Paul. Combined, the two make up the second largest economic center in the Midwest United States, only falling behind the city of Chicago. Some of the biggest employers in the area, outside of the Fortune companies listed above, include Wells Fargo, RBC Wealth Management, Star Tribune, Capella Education Company, the city of Minneapolis, and others.
Minneapolis has a strong economy and their unemployment rate is only 3.7%, which is significantly lower than the US average of 5.5%. The city is expecting future job growth at 38% over the next ten years, and the average household income is $50,000 per year. About 23% of the population makes over $100,00 a year, and the top three occupations for residents in the Minneapolis area code are health care and social assistance, education services, and professional, scientific, technical services.
Minneapolis - St.Paul was named #9 on the Forbes list of “Best Neighborhoods and Cities For Millennials” in 2014, and the city was also reported as the third most expensive city in North America in a worldwide list by The Economist. Some annual events in area code 612 include the Minnesota Fringe Festival, the Minneapolis Monarch Festival, and Twin Cities Marathon.
