Arrington Vineyards is Williamson County’s first winery
In answer to the Nashville Business Journal's question "What is Williamson County's secret weapon?", Ernie replied "A 'triple storm' (in a good way) of human resources, entrepreneurial spirit and Nike's 'just do it' attitude ...resulting in moving concepts to reality faster."

Being a true entrepreneur means taking calculated risks in business. Williamson County provides the opportunity for monetary gain encompassed in a culture of learning, artistic expression, high standards for the quality of one’s life, and all the resources needed to grow a business. This reduces the risk and provides a stable environment for personal development.
Owner and Founder for What’s In Store
Williamson County is a budding young county that gives a great sense of community, a beautiful backdrop from which to work and live, and a progressive heart that embraces the arts, innovation and technology.

For us, the number of healthcare companies based in Williamson County is also an enormous benefit. This allows us to network and do business with a large number of healthcare companies without having to get on an airplane. I also prefer Williamson County’s rolling hills and leafy office parks to the traditional urban office environments.

Williamson County has a variety of great companies forced to thin ranks after having attracted great people into the surrounding area creating “entrepreneurial fertilizer” and a landscape poised for success beyond our current expectations.
President for Swiftwick
For us, we are located in northern Williamson County which is very central to the entire Nashville Metropolitan area. The location is convenient for many of our consultants and clients who are all over the Middle Tennessee area.
