Business
The friendliness and attention to customer service you expect to find in a small town still exists and it’s right here in Bullhead City. The growth in the area over the past few years has brought an abundance of business opportunities to residents. These opportunities have added to the job base and delivered retail shopping opportunities that previously required a road trip of at least 200 miles round-trip.

In 2005, the growth of the population in the region reached an estimated 72,000 within a 20-mile radius of Bullhead City. The estimated six million visitors to the region each year continue to spur growth in the retail and service industries and infuse cash into the area economy. Pro-business governmental agencies, enterprise zones and no corporate franchise or business inventory tax help provide the proper climate for business to grow.

Bullhead Regional Economic Development Authority
The Bullhead Regional Economic Development Authority is a private, nonprofit organization contracted by the city of Bullhead City to direct and implement the economic development activities of the region. It is governed by a 25-member board representing many different economic sectors of the community, with the daily operations under the guidance of a President/CEO.

The prime objective of the EDA is to attract new businesses to the area and assist with the retention and expansion of existing businesses. This is accomplished by ensuring that all of the incentives offered by the state, county and city are made available to all who qualify. Additionally, the organization works closely with the Arizona Commerce Authority, a variety of site selection consultants, other organizations and individuals in insuring the Bullhead Region all it has to offer are offered to all new businesses searching for a new location. They also work closely with the city, assisting new and existing businesses through the planning, zoning and permitting processes, if requested.

Long-term goals are to increase employment opportunities, increase capital investment, increase population and thus, increase the tax base.

The EDA will package SBA 7(a) and SBA 504 loans for clients who qualify (and request that service) as well as assist with the development of business and marketing plans for any entity in the region.
