Business Retention & Expansion

The Greater Phoenix Chamber’s Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) program was a collaborative effort with the Arizona Commerce Authority, City of Phoenix and Maricopa County that focused on businesses located in Arizona that employed community members and contributed to the region’s economic health. These existing companies are responsible for 80% of the new jobs created.

The Chamber and our partners conducted more than 5,000 collective outreach visits since 2015.


All the data from our business retention visits has been aggregated and analyzed to provide a sense of the business climate and needs of the business community.
