2 Where STRATEGIC Growth is the Point. With a highly educated workforce, excellent public school systems and a range of lifestyle choices, Williamson County is home to a diverse business community - from 40 corporate headquarters to thousands of small-shop entrepreneurs. Eleven of the largest 25 publicly traded companies in the Nashville region are located in the county, which also claims a third of the fastest-growing companies in the entire state. As a result of this dynamic business environment, Williamson County is a leader in the Southeast in population growth, employment growth and per capita income growth. More than 6,000 businesses span diverse industries, led by healthcare, technology, entertainment and manufacturing. Corporate headquarters include Nissan North America, Mars Petcare, Tractor Supply Company and Community Health Systems. Large, class A business parks provide an array of modern workspaces, and more major mixed-use development projects now are underway. Small-town and uniquely refurbished office options are popular in the historic downtown Franklin area and in the county s other community-focused cities and towns of Brentwood, Fairview, Nolensville, Spring Hill and Thompson s Station. Education is a priority in Williamson County - both in the top-ranked public school system and in higher education as reflected by the 54 percent of residents with a bachelor s degree. Of those, 18 percent have either a graduate or professional degree. Some 21 colleges and universities are located within driving distance, and Williamson-based programs offering undergraduate, graduate and executive education are expanding exponentially. From festivals that draw thousands to an award-winning vineyard that hosts some of the best musicians in the country, the uniqueness of Williamson County lies in its strong community spirit and its rich history and cultural heritage. Offering easy access to prized green spaces near big-city amenities, Williamson County truly is a place for businesses and their employees to call home.
