Retention and Expansion

Economic Development / Retention and Expansion

One of the Round Rock Chamber’s most important activities is to support the growth of existing businesses in the community.

The chamber’s Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) program develops and implements strategies that proactively engage existing businesses to gain a better understanding of the business environment in Round Rock, identify opportunities to help business grow/expand, assist businesses in overcoming difficulties and challenges, provide general assistance, track trends, and make sure the city remains a viable place to do business.

An effective BRE program requires responsive and efficient follow up.  This can range in scope from assisting a business in locating a larger facility for its growing operations, providing awareness of available community resources, helping a company apply for a Texas Enterprise Zone designation, aiding navigation through the city’s permitting and development process, identifying additional resources for capital acquisition, and providing networking opportunities with potential partners and companies.  Essentially, the BRE resource can be used as a one-stop shop for addressing business needs.
