Overview

Taylor is well-known world wide for its barbecue and historic downtown. It’s also well known for its rich culture and progressive leadership.

Recently, there has been a lot of media buzz about the opportunities in Taylor, Texas. So, what’s the buzz all about? Since 2009, more than 20 companies have expanded or relocated to Taylor, announcing and creating almost 250 jobs along the way… during one of the worst national economies on record. Why? It’s the small-business-friendly attitude and low-costs in the Austin region that welcomes the drivers of the federal, state and local economies.

For many years, the Taylor economy has been largely based in agriculture and manufacturing. The hard working spirit of these industries stay in Taylor today. Actively recruiting companies that add to the diversity of the local industry while providing it’s residents with good employment keeps Taylor striding forward.

Materials manufacturing to support the region’s surging construction market, communications equipment manufacturing, in-bound call centers, and remote data centers all find that affordable real estate and labor make it possible to save money while still being located in a large metropolitan area.

Taylor also seeks to increase businesses associated with value-added agriculture; logistics and distribution; hospitality and tourism; design (e.g. arts and crafts, software, film production, professional services); healthcare; and retail.
