Atlanta Sees the Brighter Days Ahead

Henry Ford once said, “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” And we in the south certainly believe that. Atlanta being the empire of the south is home to many businesses, and soon thanks to all the work put into the city by the amazing elected officials as well as all the business men and women we can confidently see brighter days ahead.

While I am in no way claiming an overnight turnaround for Atlanta’s economy I am confidently claiming that we are at an amazing point in Atlanta where we can claim slowly but surely we are rising above. What am I basing this on? Well granted with all the negative media out there it is hard to find the silver lining but it starts with Atlanta based businesses. For example Home Depot, UPS and Delta announce that they are unfreezing salary raises. With all three corporate offices located in the city we are looking for an economic boost with the news. Not to mention TBS a home town favorite, started by none other than Ted Turner himself, is also in the process of expanding in the city and creating more jobs for Atlantans. This is a great jumping off point for Atlanta, and just the morale boost we needed.

Now that our home based businesses are getting back on track we can focus on the new businesses that will be joining us and making sure they feel at home. With companies such as NCR, Novelis, ANTs, and Sony Ericson relocating their Head Quarters to Atlanta we look forward to seeing a substantial growth in jobs. Cobb County alone has already expected 1,400 temporary jobs to be created in the next few months. It’s not hard to see what attracts these companies to our amazing city. We have beautiful weather, low cost of living, metropolitan arts, yet family orientated atmosphere and of course Southern Hospitality! Let’s look forward to growing together!

Speaking of southern hospitality, Bronner Brothers, another Atlanta based company, hosted their Annual Mid-Winter Hair Show this past weekend at the Georgia World Congress Center. We here at the Inn at the Peachtrees loved having guests stay with us and show off all they learned at the show, it was a marvelous display. If you haven’t seen pictures of the imaginative elaborate hairstyles created I recommend you do!
