Local Business Resources

Addison Mayor Joe Chow visits Bottle Rocket Studios with ED Department

Addison recognizes that local businesses are the back-bone of the local economy; so cultivating an environment that is business friendly is critical to the overall success of the community.  Economic Development and Tourism Department staff is available to assist local companies get better connected in the community and to assist in addressing business needs or community concerns.  Staff can help companies find spaces to grow their business, identify potential local suppliers, assist with staffing resources, provide information about the community, and identify other potential resources that can facilitate growth and retention.  Local companies are encouraged to contact Orlando Campos, Economic Development Director, or Wilson Kerr, Economic Development Manager for help.
