#StillHiring | #StillInnovating | #StillMaking | #StillServing | #StillFarming


At the Frederick County Office of Economic Development, we take pride in our businesses.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, our companies and organizations are still hard at work. They have proven that they are resilient, flexible, and creative. We have seen restaurants pivot to outdoor dining, retailers offer live video shopping, and manufacturers making PPE. These businesses are Still Making, Still Innovating, Still Serving, Still Farming, and Still Hiring. Every day, on our social media, we will introduce you to one business that helps make our community a great place to live and work.

Even through hardships, we are #StillFrederickCo.
