Doing Business In Town

An open invitation to businesses from Pennsauken Township Mayor Betsy McBride

Dear Business Owner,

It's been a longer journey economically, with many of us continuing to move out of “recession mode.” According to the United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment in Camden County dropped 1.5 percent from September 2014 to September 2016. Across the country, compensation costs increased 0.6 percent for civilian workers, seasonally adjusted, from June 2016 to September 2016. Over the year, compensation rose 2.3 percent, with wages and salaries up 2.4 percent and benefits up 2.3 percent. These are positive indicators that business growth and consumer spending will continue to increase.

If you’re looking to grow your business and expand your facilities, I invite you to consider Pennsauken Township to help achieve these goals. Many companies, including Barry Callebaut, USA, Lidestri, Puratos, and Restaurant Equippers Warehouse Store have all decided on Pennsauken as a prime business location. Over the last six years, Pennsauken businesses have invested well over $100 million into our community through redevelopment and construction projects.This business-friendly environment was a major reason why our town was recognized with the Municipal and Business Partnership Award during the 2013 Tri-County Economic Development Summit.

We feel that Pennsauken is a true hub for any business. The proximity to major arteries such as Route 130, 70 and 73, the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstates 95 and 76 make our community a gateway to commerce. Major cities like Philadelphia, New York City, Wilmington, Baltimore and Washington D.C. are only a car ride away. In addition, with the new Pennsauken Transit Center, workers can travel to Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Trenton, and points in between to easily get to the office or visit clients.

Pennsauken’s Department of Economic Development is ready, willing and able to help you make our town your new business headquarters. An important liaison between your company and Township government, our team can help you make connections with local commercial real estate, employee training programs, and more. They also have a job bank of Pennsauken residents primed for new employment opportunities. 

I strongly encourage you to consider business-friendly Pennsauken Township to further your organization’s growth. To learn more, contact Pennsauken’s Department of Economic Development at 856-665-1000 x 108 or 153, or e-mail
