Gwinnett has many advantages, beginning with its location and road system. The county is just 45 minutes from Hartsfield International Airport and 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Georgia Highway 316 has been extended to Athens, reducing travel time to the University of Georgia to 25 minutes. Gwinnett’s infrastructure includes more than 2,750 miles of roadways to provide excellent mobility for future business and citizens. As one of the fastest-growing counties in America for several decades, it’s no surprise that business is booming here. Three major shopping malls anchor the retail sector, while other businesses are attracted by the financial, legal, professional and technical services Gwinnett has to offer.
