Doing Business Here
The Greater Rochester, NY region, a community of more than 1.2 million people, is home to a diverse set of businesses that have capitalized on our area's highly-educated workforce, research centers of excellence and industry expertise in fields such as energy innovation, biotech and life sciences, food and beverage production, and optics, photonics and imaging. Constellation Brands, Paychex, Wegmans Food Markets, and Xerox, are a few of the companies that have established thriving businesses in a community that was built on the legacy of entrepreneurship and innovation.
It's not the size of the region that matters, but what it can accomplish. We produce more patents per resident, and we have more brains trained to excel in this knowledge-based economy than communities three times our size. We have what successful businesses need: a talented and competitively-priced labor pool; competitive tax incentives; abundant supply of fresh water; and prime real estate at costs well below the national average.
The Greater Rochester, New York Region's economy continues to evolve to reflect a diversified mix of industries.
