True southern hospitality in Conyers Rockdale

Located less than half an hour drive from downtown Atlanta, Conyers is a small city that has benefited from its proximity to the state capital, the third-fastest growing metropolitan area in the United States.

Conyers’ most popular attractions are the Georgia International Horse Park, Monastery of the Holy Spirit, the Veterans War Memorial and Big Haynes Creek Nature Center. But at its heart is Historic Olde Town Conyers, a unique shopping and dining center that showcases the city’s southern heritage.

The city’s diverse community and good quality of life have attracted many domestic and foreign companies, including LioChem Inc., a subsidiary of Toyo Ink Manufacturing, which marked its 30th year of operations last year.

“We are very happy to reach this milestone with LioChem. They have been a great support to the local community and we are excited to continue our relationship with them,” said Conyers-Rockdale Economic Development Council (CREDC) Executive Director Marty Jones.

CREDC is determined to maintain good relations with its existing investors to ensure their continued growth.

“It’s important for us to make sure that those companies get the help that they need as they expand. We want to be good partners,” Jones stressed.

True to its Southern hospitality, Conyers welcomes more people to visit, whether be it for business or pleasure.

“We’re a diverse, dynamic, and distinct community. We welcome everyone to see what we have here,” Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Fred Boscarino said.
