The Triad is Pretty Hot for Relocation/Expansion


Recommended Posts

Expansion Management, a magazine for site-selection consultants and companies interested in moving or expanding have released their annual "hottest" list. Once again, NC's two largest are leading the big 5 with good rankings from the 3rd and 5th. Even though i have much faith in my city, im a little suprised at the ranking...a strong 34th. this has to be one of the highest business rankings for Winston-Salem? Looks like the Triad is starting to become attractive to the nation.
