Tailored Business Retention & Expansion Services

CCEDC is committed to assisting both emerging and established businesses within our community. To reach this goal, we have launched a proactive initiative known as the Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) program.

The BRE program is centered around engaging businesses in face-to-face discussions to identify their unique challenges and opportunities. Through these insightful conversations, we aim to foster business growth, promote investment, and foster job creation within Copperas Cove.

The core objectives of our BRE program include:

  • Identifying areas for growth that lead to the creation of new job opportunities.

  • Establishing connections between businesses and local networks, such as trade associations and business support organizations.

  • Facilitating access to funding sources for expansion, including traditional lending and government grants.

Business Roundtables

A collaboration with CCEDC and the Copperas Cove Chamber of Commerce

We are excited to announce the launch of the Business Roundtables Initiative. Our initial focus will be on the restaurant industry, aiming to foster collaboration and facilitate growth with this vital sector.

The primary objective of these roundtables is to establish a platform where restaurateurs, industry stakeholders, and local authorities can come together to exchange ideas and collectively address challenges. By nurturing a supportive environment, we seek to elevate the overall competitiveness of Copperas Cove’s restaurant landscape. 

Through these discussions, we aim to:

  • Forge stronger partnerships within the industry

  • Streamline regulatory processes

  • Implement strategic initiatives for long-term success

While our inaugural effort focuses on the restaurant sector, this initiative serves as a pilot program. CCEDC plans to extend this model to other key industries in Copperas Cove in the future.
