Maury County’s consistent success with annual growth has earned it the title of fifth most in-demand county in Tennessee for investments and new businesses, according to a study by SmartAsset.

Although last year’s results ranked Maury County as third fastest growing, that doesn’t mean its progress has slowed down, Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance president Wil Evans said.
