There’s a lot to love in Volusia County, Florida and it’s not just the sunshine nearly every day of the year. While Daytona boasts the “world’s most famous beach” and you can have family-friendly oceanside fun in New Smyrna Beach, Ormond Beach, and beyond, there’s more to this region than simply tourism.
In fact, the county is slated for the third-highest percentage in the nation of employers adding jobs in the first quarter of 2020. That’s according to research from global staffing firm Manpower. Now, you can position your business for long-term success by relocating to Volusia County. Use these suggestions to learn more about why this option is an excellent choice.
In his final State of the County address as Volusia County Chair, Ed Kelley touted infrastructure improvements and coordinated strategies to bring more jobs to the area, specifically highly-skilled careers such as aerospace engineers. In fact, Volusia County is home to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which trains commercial and military pilots, as well as those interested in the aerospace industry, corporate relations, and other fields.
As a dedicated business leader, this can be good news for you, since growth often yields heightened interest. That could bring qualified workers and eager clients/customers to your door.
In his address, Kelly also mentioned a push for affordable housing across the board. When this happens, more families are able to move into areas that might have previously been difficult to consider. That means more prospective team members looking for jobs, and potential customers that are seeking products and services you offer.
In addition to residential construction, county leaders are also focused on increased commercial construction in the area. Other focal points for growth exist in the industries of manufacturing, transportation, and logistics.
Meaningful Business Partnerships
In fact, Amazon recently announced plans to build a distribution center in Deltona, which is in the west part of the county. East county improvements are also complete or in the works, such as a new headquarters for insurance giant Brown and Brown in downtown Daytona Beach. Nearby in Ormond Beach, Security First Insurance opened their new headquarters in 2019. Other improvements are pending.
All of this adds up to an ideal opportunity to relocate your business to one of the fastest-growing areas in the Sunshine State and the nation. Here’s where you can get in on the ground floor of what’s expected to be decades of growth and prosperity.
