Local Business


Holmes County takes pride in its local business community. Today the county business composition is diverse consisting of corporate head quarters, regional supply chains, satellite offices, home-based enterprises, and cottage industries. As the driving force of the Holmes County economy these ventures provide white, blue, pink, gray, and green collars jobs to area residents. To ensure the ongoing success of local industry, the Holmes County Economic Development Council serves as an advocate to area employers in addressing a wide range of needs and issues. These efforts have resulted in the establishment of a business friendly environment supportive of ongoing growth and development.
