5 companies make their move to Georgia

It’s no secret that Georgia is recognized for its exceptional business-friendly environment. In fact, Site Selection has named it the number one state for doing business for nearly a decade consecutively. That kind of reputation undoubtedly attracts companies of all sizes to settle in the area every year, establishing headquarters, distribution centers, customer service operations and more, while other companies look to expand in the area. Here are some of the most recent big business moves to our fair city and its surrounding areas.


PrizePicks, one of the most prominent daily fantasy sports operators, will invest $25 million in a new headquarters, a 33,000-square-foot facility to be located in Midtown Atlanta. Approximately 1,000 new jobs are expected to be added over the next seven years thanks to the project, which actually will be an expansion for the Atlanta-based company that was founded in 2015.
