We are committed to supporting business; just ask our local executives
During the past 12 months, the Atlanta Braves have been fortunate to work closely with many individuals from Cobb County who recognized and valued the long-term economic impact and benefits our organization will bring to the community, for decades. The Cobb Chamber’s leadership was at the center of many of these initiatives. They clearly recognized the game-changing environment our new ballpark and mixed-use development will have on the Cobb economy for generations to come. We appreciate their vision and commitment to help us create this unique destination in Cobb County, our new home.

President of Development, Atlanta Braves

We are a family start-up that began here in Cobb County.  Here, you have a local team that you can utilize for resources in site location, incentives and start-up resources.  Due to those resources our family start-up grew into a national brand.  We started with 5,000 units and we’ve sold over 10 million worldwide.  We were in only 18 storefronts in our first year, now we are in over 20,000.  We are a small publishing house in Georgia – and we have been able to conquer the bestsellers list four times.  With that type of growth you need real infrastructure, both domestically and throughout the world; that is what we have been able to gleam from Cobb County, an opportunity for our business and our employees to flourish.

We are proud to call Cobb County home for our 1,000 new employees at The Battery Atlanta. In Cobb, there is a long legacy of approachability between the business community & the government leaders; it’s been a great partnership. From my perspective, SelectCobb continues that legacy of the community’s investment into creating a vibrant workforce.

We have been headquartered in Cobb County since 2006, starting with 40 employees and have grown to more than 250. I like to think that Cobb County has fueled our growth and provided our business with the ecosystem to be successful and a magnet for talent. Today, we look at this market as one of the most attractive in the Atlanta area for millennial’s and all employees with safe neighborhoods and the best of public schools.

President & CEO, Gas South

I am excited to have out new corporate headquarters in Cumberland and Cobb County. We looked at many sites for our new tower and corporate development, but the reality of it is, everything seemed to come together. In working with the County, the Development Authority, our decision was easy. This is one of the most business friendly areas of the region. The excitement of the area is wonderful for recruiting the best talent – from the new Atlanta Braves stadium, being the home to both the Atlanta Opera and the Atlanta Ballet and new concert venues and parks, it was wonderful news to our employees.
