Business Retention & Expansion


Existing businesses have been and always will be the mainstay of our successful Amarillo economy. These businesses contribute 40-80% of all new jobs, support our local labor force, and enhance our quality of life. This is why assisting existing companies as they growth and expand is a key part of our mission through a variety of means: 

  • Identify barriers local businesses face as they try to survive and grow
  • Identify growth and expansion opportunities
  • Connect companies with local resources
  • Assist with referrals to resource partners, workforce training and finances
