Retention & Expansion

Nurturing existing businesses is the top priority for the Jacksonville Economic Development Corporation (JEDCO). We consider the businesses invested in our local economy customers, and we are committed to providing unparalleled customer service.

Developing relationships is the first component in our business retention and expansion (BRE) efforts. We desire to have a personable and professional relationship built upon trust with our existing customers and constituents. We understand trust is earned, and from a simple visit, to working through a complex or difficult situation, we strive to be an organization our businesses can depend on.

JEDCO staff regularly connect with businesses through scheduled site visits, lunch meetings, information events, and more. JEDCO has a track-record of providing assistance to existing companies to aid in retention and expansion projects.
