We’re Open for Business — North East
North East is Pennsylvania’s northernmost town, known for its wineries, sunsets, and family-friendly atmosphere. Perhaps a lesser-known feature of North East, however, is the incredible amount of untapped potential it has for businesses of all industries. This ranges from our proximity to the Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad to the skills and character of our workforce.
We encourage everyone to learn more about the qualities that make North East such an opportune location for businesses, whether you’re an entrepreneur with an idea or a well-established business owner looking to grow.
A Sizable Workforce
With a population of over 4,000 people, North East has a sizable workforce waiting for new opportunities. As a community, we value hard work, reliability, and communication. These values, along with our diverse array of work experience and educational backgrounds, ensure that you’ll find the employees your business needs to thrive.
Lots of Available Space
North East is 1.301mi2 in size, a large portion of which is currently going unused. This includes empty street-front buildings in our downtown area that would be suitable for office buildings and brick and mortar stores. We also have plenty of available space in greener areas closer to Lake Erie.
Ideal Weather Conditions
Running a successful business can be difficult in areas with a history of harsh storms, frequent road closures, and extreme temperatures. Thankfully, this is never a concern for businesses in North East. We’re right off the coast of Lake Erie, which moderates our temperatures by cooling the area during the summer and warming it in the winter.
Access to Interstate and Rail
One of the most attractive qualities North East has to offer businesses is our interstate location between Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio. Our small town is within just 1-2 hours’ driving distance from major cities on the east coast, including Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland.
We’re also conveniently located next to the Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad. This is very beneficial for businesses that want to transport bulk commodities and/or access various warehouse facilities.
