Business Support Services

A High-Value Market for Corporate Operations

Lower costs on land, real estate and workforce make Temple a high-value option for companies looking to put down roots and grow in the heart of Central Texas.

Temple’s technically skilled labor pool is young, educated and growing. With a median age of 34.6, much younger than the national average, the local population has grown 15% over the last 10 years and the talent pipeline is steadily fed by the eight higher education institutions within 80 miles.

The local workforce is a driving force for success for market-leading companies like TTEC, a business process outsourcing (BPO) company, that recently opened a new customer engagement center in Temple. Martin DeGhetto, TTEC’s chief operating officer, cites the local “candidates who have empathy, compassion, and a strong work ethic to build [the Temple] team” as a factor in the company’s location decision.

Temple also offers competitive real estate costs and plenty of space to grow. The McLane Group, a holding company of industry-spanning ventures, has developed The Lakes at Central Pointe, a 165-acre Class A technology and office park. The Lakes has quickly become home to some of Temple’s key business support service employers, including PDI, McLane Technology Partners and Eye Care Leaders, and has room for more with an additional 135 acres available for future development.

For executives who require convenient air access, Temple offers Draughon-Miller Central Texas Regional Airport, which connects to three commercial airports in under 60 minutes and is a four-minute drive from Temple’s corporate center, and is a one-hour drive from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio are all within close reach.
