Center for Local Business

From Red Iguana in the west to Hip & Humble in the east, small and medium enterprises make up Salt Lake’s unique genetic code. These local businesses add flavor to our desert city, as well as meets the needs of our residents. Salt Lake City’s government wants to see these companies grow roots and flourish.

Salt Lake City’s Economic Development Division is here to help with all your small business needs. We offer one-on-one consultations and a step-by-step guide to legally setting a business in Salt Lake. We have numerous partnerships with community organizations that are committed to seeing local business grow and would love to put you in contact with them.

It is our goal to develop programming and partnerships that make it easier for our business community to service our neighborhoods, larger businesses and companies, and our tourism industry.
