Spend any time in Amarillo and you will quickly begin to feel the legacy that built this strong community. What was once a small “tent city” on the front edge of the frontier is now a thriving city where the grit and determination that pioneered this region still lives.

Amarillo was built on the shoulders of men and women committed to farming, ranching and oil exploration. Generations of families have dedicated themselves to growing this city on the high plains into what it boats today. Today, we are not just a community focused on agriculture and oil, but on technology, education and emerging industries.

THE BENEFITS OF BUSINESS RETENTION AND EXPANSION PROGRAMS

THE PRIMARY SOURCES OF JOB GROWTH EXIST IN EVERY COMMUNITY:

80%

Existing business expansions account for 80%

11%

Incoming new businesses account for 11%

9%

And start-up operations account for 9%

WHY WE SHOULD SUPPORT EXISTING BUSINESSES:

  • Existing businesses provide even more return on investment in smaller, rural market areas where entrepreneurial and recruitment opportunities are limited.
  • While customer attrition is a fact of life in both the private and public sectors, it's 10 times more cost-effective to work with existing customers than to continually cultivate new ones.
  • Business retention and expansion provide the customer -- the existing private sector firm in your market area -- with a seamless customer contact and service experience.
  • Less than 10% of business closures result from business failures. More than 90% are caused by work movement through mergers, consolidation, restructuring and deliberate decisions to relocate businesses.
