Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
Oklahoma City was recently ranked # 28 of the 100 Best Places to Raise a Family by the Today Show. Cities were judged on crime rates, school quality, heathcare, the arts, housing costs, average commute times and divorce rates.

What makes a site "Site-Ready Certified?"
In the Greater Oklahoma City region, we strive to make the site selection process as easy as possible. That's why we're proud to participate in the State of Oklahoma's Site Ready program. Developed in 2006, only three other states in the nation offer a similar program, guaranteeing sites are: ready for immediate sale or lease; ready to build on with utilities in place or pre-permitted and planned; and clear of regulatory constraints.New sites are being added to this list and we are working with numerous property owners to reach these exacting standards. Please contact us to find out more about currently certified sites and those in the pipeline.
