What makes Bryan County a great location for businesses interested in expanding into the U.S.?
If you are looking for a strategically positioned location to expand or relocate your business, Bryan County, Georgia is a great choice. Interstate 16 crosses the northern part of the county and Interstate 95 runs through the southern part, plus we’re well connected to global markets – less than 30 minutes from Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport and the Port of Savannah. In fact, other major ports, including Charleston, Brunswick and Jacksonville are short drives via Interstate 95.

What makes Bryan County unique?
Named for American Revolutionary War partisan, Jonathan Bryan, Bryan County, Georgia was created on December 19, 1793. Bryan County is unique in that one-third of the community is occupied by Fort Stewart, the largest Army installation east of the Mississippi River and home of the 3rd Infantry Division. Bryan County is perfect for those looking for the best of both worlds. The north end of the county has a quiet, small town feel, and the south end keeps growing with numerous new businesses and residential development.

How is the military presence beneficial to companies entering Bryan County?
Every month, there are a number of soldiers exiting the military. They are cross-trained and computer literate with an excellent work ethic. This means the labor pool is not only steady, but also advanced.

Are there any programs that help with their transition into the traditional workforce?
The Soldier for Life – Transition Assistance Program (SFL-TAP) at Fort Stewart provides full-spectrum transition services to soldiers, retirees, and their Army families in transition from active duty or demobilizing. Life skills training includes job search, resume writing, career guidance, and benefits use and negotiation skills relevant to a successful transition to civilian life.

What makes Bryan County a great place to live?
Our quality of life is second to none with a top-performing public K-12 school system offering programs like STEM, first-class recreational parks and walking trails, the nearby Atlantic Ocean and abundant outdoor activities like sportfishing and golf. Plus, in Bryan County, you will find a great small town, family atmosphere with a growing population and the cultural diversity of Savannah at our back door.
