Inspire Brands, a multi-brand restaurant with a portfolio that includes more than 4,600 Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings and R Taco Restaurants, will locate its new headquarters and Global Support Center in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The company plans to create more than 1,100 jobs and invest approximately $32 million in Fulton County over the next six years.

The headquarters is expected to open in 2019 and will be the global hub for Inspire and its portfolio of restaurant brands.

“We are proud to call Atlanta the home of Inspire Brands,” said Paul Brown, co-founder and CEO of Inspire Brands. “Our vision is to invigorate great brands and supercharge their long-term growth, and Atlanta provides the culture of innovation we need for our brands to reach unprecedented success. I want to thank Governor Deal and his team for their leadership in helping cultivate our city and state in to a world-class business hub.”

“For the better part of the last decade, Georgia has cultivated a reputation as a hub for industry leaders,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “When thriving companies like Inspire Brands choose to locate their headquarters in Georgia, they reaffirm the value of our highly skilled workforce and the strength of our low-tax, business-friendly climate to support long-term growth. We value Inspire’s commitment to creating jobs in Fulton County and look forward to continuing this strong partnership for years to come.”

“The major investment by Inspire Brands in jobs and capital in Fulton County is another testament to our vibrant business climate, skilled workforce and availability of high-quality real estate,” said Fulton County Board of Commissioners Chairman Rob Pitts. “It also reflects the unparalleled success of the City of Sandy Springs in being a leading destination for corporate headquarters and operations.”

“We have focused on creating an environment, the infrastructure and amenities to attract top talent and keep them here with unequaled access to our work and play lifestyle,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul. “It is especially satisfying to watch companies like Inspire Brands thrive and grow within our community.”

“Inspire Brands is an exciting, fast-growing company in the region, and their expansion reflects confidence in metro Atlanta’s growth as a global hub for franchising,” said Hala Moddelmog, President & CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Inspire Brands’ investment in the metro area will continue to build on that reputation.”

“Georgia is the ideal home for business headquarter operations, and Inspire Brands will be in good company as they establish their new headquarters in Sandy Springs,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “We are excited about the many job opportunities they are creating for our citizens.”
