Site Selection

Companies benefit from our low cost of doing business, with market rates on a lease or purchase ranging from $6-12 per square foot for a build-to-suit site, and one of the lowest property tax rates in Florida.  The county also offers excellent transportation and supply chain networks.

Gloria and Emilio Estefan

  • In 2001, Gloria and Emilio Estefan purchased a home in Vero Beach, then decided to become more involved in the community and opened Coste d'Este Beach Resort & Spa.  Their video speaks volumes about our business-friendly environment - "Heaven on Earth" are the exact words used!  
  • Tim Girard, the President/CEO of Girard Equipment, a growing manufacturer of parts for the tanker truck industry, summarizes his experience in relocating his company from New Jersey to Indian River County. 
  • Fortis, formerly known as Blue Dog Business Services, is a great local company that we assisted with their expansion plans.  Headquartered in Vero Beach, this video of Ron Dichter, CEO, explains why he chose to remain and grow his company in Vero Beach rather than relocating elsewhere.
  • Dragonfly Boatworks is another great small business located in Vero Beach that manufactures stand-up paddelboards, kayaks and small fishing boats.  The Owner, Mark Castlow, is very community-oriented, as you can see from his video.

This video, released by the Vero Beach Regional Airport, outlines the benefits of locating or expanding your business to one of their build-to-suit sites.  Your neighbors will include Piper Aircraft, Sun Aviation, Skyborne Academy and Paris Air flight schools, Corporate Air,  plus Indian River Distillery and Walking Tree Brewery.  A U.S. Customs facility is now under construction, anticipated to open in mid-2024.

We will assemble a Business Assistance Team tailored to your business needs. Whether you have a new business, or you’re expanding or relocating to Indian River County, our team of professionals will assist in streamlining the entire permitting process from new construction to building renovations. Working with our resource partners such as Indian River State College and CareerSource Research Coast, assistance is also available in hiring and training new employees, often with training costs offset by state grant funds.

For businesses or employees relocating to Indian River County, the Chamber provides assistance to familiarize you with real estate (industrial, commercial, residential), schools, services available, the medical community, local government agencies, community organizations, recreation and cultural opportunities.
