Georgia

Overview

Georgia is in the heart of the South and the birthplace of notable figures such as James Brown, former President Jimmy Carter, Ray Charles, Martin Luther King Jr., and Alice Walker. It was one of the original 13 US colonies and one of the original seven states to form the confederacy. The capital Atlanta is home to Coca-Cola and the largest indoor aquarium in the world, Stone Mountain and a diverse musical heritage. Georgia is known as the “Peach State,” but it’s also the nation’s lead producer of pecans, paper and board, tufted textiles, and processed chicken. It produces twice as many peanuts as any other state, and half of the world’s resins and turpentine from its vast stands of pine trees. Georgia is a great place for a small business owner to start out due to its supportive communities and Southern hospitality.
