Economic Development Division
When you open a franchise in Houston, you won’t be working alone. Not only do you have the world-class support from the corporate office of Signarama, but the city of Houston has programs in place to aid you on the road to profit. The city’s Economic Development Division, or EDD, acts as a liaison between your business and various city and state organizations. This helps your Houston franchise maximize its profit by helping you understand the various tax breaks, location incentives, and grants available to you. The EDD’s goal is to increase employment in the city of Houston, thereby helping the local economy. If you take advantage of the EDD’s resources, your franchise in Houston will greatly benefit from their experience.
A Growing City
As we mentioned before, Houston is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Between 2015 and 2040, the real gross area product is expected to more than double, with key growth in services, manufacturing, mining, finance, insurance, and real estate. Even as the population sees significant growth, unemployment in the city has remained one full percentage point lower than the national rate, due to the huge job growth in the region. Indeed, Houston is the fourth most populous city in the nation, falling only behind New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Houston’s population growth is not expected to slow down, and the city was the number one destination city five years in a row, from 2008 to 2013, based on a report comprised of 1.7 million one way U-Haul rentals.
If you open a franchise in Houston now, you can take advantage of the still relatively low cost of doing business in the region, which is bound to increase as the economy and population continue to grow. In addition, getting in on the ground floor of this vibrant city will allow your Houston franchise to build a solid base on which you can expand as time goes on.
Houston has so much to offer an up-and-coming business owner that the decision to invest there is a no brainer. Between the valuable business resources through the EDD and the rapidly growing economy and population, your Houston franchise has all the tools that it will need to thrive.
