Business Retention & Expansion (BRE)

Existing businesses play an integral role in the continued success of our economy. When a local business flourishes, the entire community reaps the benefits.

Business Visitation Program


Goochland County Economic Development works closely with existing companies to ensure they have the tools and resources they need to grow. As part of the county's BRE efforts, Economic Development has established a business visitation program.

During this on-site visit, Economic Development staff meets one-on-one with the business owner to learn more about the company's history, products, services, and staff; discuss business objectives, successes, and challenges; and find out what the county can do to help the company achieve its goals.
