"Grand Blanc – Planned, Progressive and Prestigious"

When people describe Grand Blanc as being planned, progressive and prestigious, they are right on the money. This is the headquarters for Genesys Regional Medical Center and the Service Parts Operation for General Motors, so you can just imagine the employment opportunities available here.

Despite the fact that Grand Blanc has well over 35,000 residents, it has not lost its small town feel. Residents enjoy planned recreational activities, events and fundraisers, and there is plenty of opportunity to give back and volunteer.

Medium income is slightly above Michigan average, but housing is considerably more expensive. Still, you can find some good deals on apartments if you look. There is a nice mx of races here, and although there is a little crime, it is incredibly low compared to the population index and to surrounding cities.

Grand Blanc is a fantastic place to raise a family. The school district is voted as one of the best in the state and there are plenty of nearby colleges and universities, all within driving distance.

The city is large enough where you don’t have to leave to find a good time either. Any night of the week, you will find the locals catching up at Brick Street Bar & Grill, Cobblestone Lounge and Buffalo Wild Wings.
  • Plenty of employment opportunities
  • One of the best school districts in the state
  • Housing can be quite expensive
