Moultrie continues to grow

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The tough economy hasn't stopped retail growth in Moultrie.   Just this week, Pizza Hut Wing Street opened on the Moultrie bypass.

The neighboring Northlake Village is still under construction, but promises to bring several retail shops to the city.

Downtown, Beef O'Brady's recently opened bringing 32 jobs. City leaders say success breeds success.    

"People like to see things happening and I think if you were here a year ago whether it was Sunbelt, Calico, the car show any number of thing, our Spring Fling downtown our Christmas event, any of those things if you were here and you come back a year later, I think you're going to see positive growth," said Mike Scott, Moultrie City Manager.

Granddaddy's BBQ is also coming soon to the bypass, along with a Holiday Inn Express.
