Georgetown has three distinct business districts - one downtown near The Circle; the business district on U.S. 113; and Sussex County Industrial Airpark. While most businesses serve county workers or process local agricultural products, recent growth has spurred an expansion of businesses that provide a wider variety of goods and services. Georgetown has set forth initiatives to accommodate the continuing population growth and need for new and expanding business.

The Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce’s economic development committee, the town, the county, and the state are working together to create and coordinate enticements (such as new business parks) to attract outside employers.

Georgetown’s location and access to the state’s modern highway system opens the entire mid-Atlantic region to local businesses. A direct rail link to Norfolk Southern Railroad and the adjacent Sussex County Airport further enhances Georgetown’s logistic viability.

There are four industrial parks in Sussex County: Ross Business Park (zoned light industrial/commercial), Sussex County Industrial Park (zoned light industrial), Selbyville Industrial Park (zoned light industrial/service industry) and Seaford Industrial Park (zoned light industrial). Sussex County has also established tax incentives for businesses. The county and state do not levy taxes on sales or inventory, and have one of the lowest personal income and real estate tax rates in the nation.
