A City With Opportunity
Fayette is a town where people have always found opportunity waiting to be fulfilled.
From its beginning as one of the earliest towns in northwest Alabama, industrious citizens have captured the future with their visions and dreams. Across many fields of endeavor Fayette has been the starting point for people with great ideas, energy and expectations for tomorrow. A small rural town might not be expected to provide an environment for innovation or acceptance of changing economic trends, but our city has initiated many new products and embraced the evolving business world.
City government works closely with the local community college to provide employee training and programs for several companies that supply the region, nation and world with products in a variety of fields.
There is Opportunity for You in Fayette! You will be surprised at what you can achieve here.

Julie Madison & David Smith, co-owners of Alabama Sunshine hot sauce and gourmet food company, have owned the business for 5 years, since purchasing it from founders Fred & Sally Smith, in 2016.
Alabama Sunshine specializes in farm to table hot sauces made with peppers grown on their family farm. They also have a line of spicy jams and jellies as well as BBQ sauces, relish and several other items. Since 2016 the business has grown to reach almost 300 retailers throughout Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. They moved into a new 7,000 sq ft facility 3 years ago which allowed them to ramp up production and fulfill large orders. Most recently, they have been accepted into several Alabama Publix stores and should be on the shelves in those very soon.
Fayette has a variety of things to see and do during your visit.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of my hometown.
Growing up in Fayette during a time of growth and initiative I know the citizens of our town have the heart to continue the progressive actions that have always characterized our town. Our history of is one of people with the vision and daring to achieve outsized goals for a town our size.
There are may things we can do together to continue providing the environment of opportunity Fayette has always enjoyed.
Please join me, the Council and others of our community as we strive to make Fayette an even better place to live, work and play.
