Cayce Means Business!

Cayce, SC – The City of Cayce proclaimed February “Cities Means Business” month at its city council meeting last evening as part of the ongoing activities sponsored by the Municipal Association of South Carolina to promote the role cities and towns play in growing the Palmettos State's economy.

“The City of Cayce provides the tools businesses need to thrive, including affordable infrastructure, a productive workforce, quality support services and available financial resources,” said Cayce Mayor Avery Wilkerson. “Our city employees work hard to ensure that businesses, residents and visitors have a clean, safe and attractive place to work, live and play. We are proud of our role in enhancing the quality of life in Cayce and serving as an economic engine for growth for the Midlands.”

According the Municipal Association, cities and towns enhance the state's overall competitiveness in attracting jobs and investment, and communities that have a pro-business climate, diversified business opportunities for its workforce, and a commitment to a high quality of life add to South Carolina's attractiveness as place to conduct business.

“SCANA is the state's only Fortune 500 company and they could have located anywhere,” Wilkerson explained. “They chose Cayce for their operations support and transmission facilities and currently have 2,400 employees working in our community. Once the corporate headquarters campus is completed, another 1,200 people will join the Cayce workforce.”

“People are drawn to places where they can enjoy a variety of cultural, recreational and community services. More and more people are recognizing Cayce's many positive selling points, from our Cayce Historical Museum, to our beautiful five-mile Riverwalk Park, affordable housing and our growing business community,” City Manager John Sharpe added. “We are seeing a number of new commercial and residential developments cropping up in our city. And with our close proximity to the Capitol and Innovista, we believe even more people will call Cayce home.”  

In addition to proclaiming February “Cities Means Business” month, the Mayor and City Council members will visit legislators as part of the Municipal Association's Legislative Action Day on February 20th. The City is also getting ready to embark on a new marketing and communications program that will increase awareness about Cayce's assets and increase the flow of information among the City and its residents and business owners.
