Frederick is hot… Summer temperatures are soaring and so are local business and employment opportunities across the City. Over the past few months we’ve seen countless Frederick businesses open, expand, relocate, and or renovate. On top of that Frederick was just named #17 on the list of the Top 100 Best Places to Live in the U.S. and July is the month that locally we always celebrate Frederick County's Best Places To Work – recognizing those businesses which go the extra mile for their employees. We announced our new partnership with Frederick County Office of Economic Development as the signature sponsor of the EmPOWER Program to support and build strong minority & women owned businesses across the city and county, as well as a partnership with Frederick Community College to support new food business entrepreneurs. Check out this issue of Frederick Business eNews to read more about theses initiatives and to see which businesses are hot and climbing. 

Stay Cool – Be Safe !
