New webpage to provide curated resources for companies seeking support

Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC) has launched a new resource to better support existing businesses in the community.

The organization’s new business retention and expansion (BRE) page on its website provides curated resources for local businesses seeking support. Business leaders can now schedule BRE check-in meetings with the Temple EDC team at their convenience, making it easier than ever to tap into the resources available.

Temple EDC’s BRE program is designed to bolster regional business expansion by offering solutions to facilitate growth and identify opportunities for success. From guidance on navigating permitting and licensing processes to assistance with determining eligibility for potential incentives, the organization has a robust slate of BRE resources to help companies remain successful and competitive when doing business in Temple, Texas.

Texas-based supermarket chain H-E-B is one example of a company that continues to invest in Temple. Last year, the company announced it would open a new frozen distribution center. Meanwhile, Niagara Bottling is expanding its warehouse facility in Temple, building upon the company’s prior operations and expansions.

“We are excited to add this new resource to our existing BRE activities for our local business community,” said Adrian Cannady, President and CEO of Temple EDC. “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for businesses to access the support and resources they need to succeed in Temple. We strongly believe our new BRE resource page will be an important tool in achieving local and statewide economic development goals.”

These resources are part of Temple EDC’s ongoing commitment to enhance economic development activities and quality of life opportunities for businesses and residents in Temple, Texas. From expansive regional partnerships – such as the Grand Central Texas economic development and North Texas Small Business Development Center (SBDC) – to talent recruitment resources – such as Meet Temple, Workforce Solutions of Central Texas, and the Central Texas Business Resource Center – Temple EDC has the access, tools and expertise to make sure local businesses have a seat at the table and the support needed to grow successfully.

Businesses looking to expand or grow can schedule a meeting with the Temple EDC team on the organization’s website
