With low tax rates and an array of support services, it’s no surprise that Georgia is a thriving incubator for small businesses. Some of the more innovative and creative ventures have captured attention outside of the Peach State.
Business Insider has scoured the country to determine the 50 coolest new businesses that are “bringing new technologies, entertainment options, and services to their local communities.” The December 2015 list, with everything from food trucks to boutique hotels to boxing gyms, includes two Atlanta-based businesses:
The General Muir: Next-gen southern Jewish deli takes humble comfort food to a new level with a thoughtful farm-to-table approach.
Why it’s cool: “Craving deli fare down south? Look no further than The General Muir, a traditional Jewish deli in the heart of Atlanta. A two-time James Beard Award semifinalist, the restaurant serves up mouthwatering dishes like corned beef and matzoh ball soup — and don't forget the bagels and lox.”
The Painted Pin: Swanky lounge-cum-bowling alley provides restaurant-quality food and beverages for bowlers.
Why it’s cool: “It's not just another dingy bowling alley. In addition to 20 luxury lanes, The Painted Pin is also a boutique bar and entertainment venue. It features no shortage of games and activities, including indoor bocce ball, shuffleboard, skee ball, ping pong, and darts, as well as a full-service bar. The spot also touts its "upscale alley" food, which ranges from wood-fired pizza to tacos and sliders.”
