Accelerating Myrtle Beach Economic Development

Raising the Profile of Greater Myrtle Beach as a Prime Business Location

The Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation (MBREDC) leads Horry County’s efforts to increase business activity. Our work involves attracting new businesses to the region and helping them grow, thrive, and create more jobs. As one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States, Myrtle Beach is more than just a great place to vacation. We’re out to propel the realization that Horry County is also a great place to live and do business.

A key part of the economic development in the region is ensuring that Myrtle Beach and Horry County are among the East Coast’s best places to start a business. To that end, we seek to stimulate private sector growth and investments. We also provide resources that enable businesses to start on the right foot by helping them understand incentives, select a location, and maintain a database of demographics and other useful reports. Beyond just attracting business, we work to draw industries to Myrtle Beach that will create enduring ties to the region, thereby leading to further economic expansion.

Another key role the MBREDC plays is serving as a workforce development agency. This includes creating high-paying jobs for residents of Horry County by expanding and diversifying the local economy. One important part of the Myrtle Beach economic development plan is retaining local graduates and giving them meaningful opportunities to participate in the workforce without leaving the community. Our interests in economic development also extend to keeping the cost of living low and promoting affordable housing throughout residential areas.

We see the pathway to success at the intersection of public civic leaders and organizations and private businesses and industries. We generate the buy-in of private corporations and industries to support local economic development initiatives. Likewise, we advocate on behalf of companies and industries to create the best environment to start and operate a business.
