Opportunity is knocking in Alpharetta. We are experiencing amazing growth in terms of businesses and jobs. Today over 3,600 Alpharetta businesses employ over 120,000 people, more than three times the City’s total population. In fact, the vast majority of these jobs have been created since the opening of North Point Mall in 1993. Almost 70,000 jobs were created in the past five years alone. From a sleepy town of 3,000 people, Alpharetta has become a major business hub.
