The Greenville/Spartanburg Business Environment
Named one of the top ten fastest growing cities in the US by CNN Money, Greenville is South Carolina’s third largest urban area, and is growing faster than any other area in the state. Similar to Spartanburg, Greenville’s business economy long depended on the textile industry; however, over the past several decades the economy has shifted, and opportunities in the professional and business services sectors have witnessed significant growth. Conveniently located halfway between Atlanta and Charlotte, the Greenville/Spartanburg area of the “Upstate” has ample opportunities for continued growth and development.
