Economic Development

Muskogee is a hub of regional growth in Northeast Oklahoma.

At the crossroads of the continent, Muskogee businesses command remarkable access to industrial, agricultural, wholesale and consumer markets throughout North America.  Located near three U.S. highways, one interstate, and three major rivers, Muskogee’s location truly is ideal for business.  With a growing affluent population and new businesses reporting success stories every month, Muskogee has much to offer businesses and retailers.  Unique community events draw hundreds of thousands each year to Muskogee, and our major merchants report 60% of their sales are to residents from outside of Muskogee.  More than 222,000 people live within an easy 30-minute drive.

Muskogee’s progressive council-city manager government believes in growing businesses and helping them prosper.  The city government and the Muskogee Chamber of Commerce work closely together to attract new businesses and residents.  Their positive attitude toward development and commitment to keeping the process simple means locating a business here just makes sense.  The success of this partnership is visible every day in Muskogee, evidenced by new construction and expanding businesses.
