Buford also boasts city-owned utilities and an independent school system providing residents with topnotch services.

CNN Money ranked it 3rd among “100 Best Places to Live and Launch,” thanks to its robust business climate and highly motivated labor force. Buford’s occupational tax clerk estimates that about 30 startups are launched in the city each month, making Buford an excellent place to start a business or build a career.
