Project Andrews began as an extension of “Andrews Open for Business,” which was held on Sept. 22.
“Andrews Open for Business” was a day where all the businesses held sales and welcomed visitors into local stores.
The turnout for the event sparked the idea for Project Andrews, which is headed by Cherokee County Commission Chairman Cal Stiles of Andrews.
Stiles formed a group of town officials such as the Cherokee County Economic Development Commission, Andrews Chamber of Commerce, Town of Andrews and Tri-County Community College in Peachtree.
The project’s goal is to enhance job creation in the town, improve recruitment of new businesses, encourage growth in the property tax base and promote economic development.
Since the project was launched in March, six businesses have moved into Andrews and more are looking to open.
