New businesses coming to Midland

New businesses are coming to Midland

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - If you live in the Midland area, you may have noticed some major construction near Beaver Run Road.

Bill Murphy with the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce said the new developments are a direct reflection of our growing region. He even gave News Leader 9 new details about the businesses coming to that area.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see fitness studios, other service providers, coffee shops, restaurants… all those things are going to be in demand," Murphy said.

He tells us the Woodruff Company is going through the negotiation process with these new businesses so he couldn't give us the names of the companies.

This also means new jobs will soon be available.

"We remain hopeful that we will see another 50-100 jobs in that development over the next year," he said.

Murphy added we should start seeing the first wave of businesses open in the next 2-3 months.
