A new webpage will encourage business owners and property developers to relocate or expand in the area

– The Atascadero Chamber of Commerce now offers an economic development resource to attract new businesses to Atascadero. The new webpage provides potential business owners and property developers with demographic information and details of available real estate to encourage them to open, expand or relocate businesses in the area. Site content is provided by REACH, a regional economic action coalition of public, private, and civic leaders from California’s Central Coast.

The web page highlights labor statistics, housing, taxes, population, community, revitalization efforts and growth potential. Contact information for local, regional and national business resources is also included.

The Property Locator feature is a robust database that allows users to search available sites, areas, layers, and demographics for any location in Atascadero. The population function shares information about age, gender, income, and education.

“Prospective business owners can now easily obtain information to make more informed decisions,” said Josh Cross, president and CEO of the chamber. “For example, Atascadero has an active population of 14,470 people and an unemployment rate of 4%. This source even shares talent percentages by occupation, from clerical and administrative support to food preparation and serving. »

According to the website, Atascadero has a total of 1,364 companies. In 2021, the top industries in Atascadero were health care and social services, retail, accommodation and food services, and construction.

Households in Atascadero earn a median annual income of $83,241, and 56.34% of households earn more than the national average each year. Household spending averages $75,660 per year, with the majority of income going to housing, transportation, food and beverages, health care and utilities.

According to the Atascadero Community Development Department, communities that work proactively on economic development create talent to fill local jobs and balance local homes and businesses so those employees can work. This translates to more places for these residents and workers to play, shop and enjoy life on the Central Coast.

Cross said there are several things that make Atascadero a growing economic center in northern SLO County. “Atascadero is in the midst of an economic recovery fueled by private investment. Restaurants and retail are attracting more and more visitors, and Chamber events such as the quarterly Art & Wine Tours and the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival help bring tourists in to shop. locally. We are excited to see new La Plaza construction companies and others driving economic development and providing amenities for visitors and residents.
