Business Development


 The residential growth in Goddard over the past 10 years has provided an excellent opportunity for emerging business and national chains alike to begin operations in Goddard.  By 2013 the area will have seen a new Wal-Mart Super Center open, a Kwik Shop Market Place, a new concept for Kroger which expands even more on its convenience line as well as a new Ace Hardware Franchise.  It’s just not the big companies either.  New locally owned businesses have sprouted along Kellogg and in the Goddard Downtown Area as well as the Goddard Industrial Park.  Additionally, 144 acres have been recently platted at the southwest corner of Kellogg and 183rd ST West for commercial and retail growth.

Young couples with pre-school children have turned New Suburbia Families into a booming lifestyle.

More than half the housing has been built since 2000 and the median value worth nearly 50 percent above the U.S. average.

Residents have both brains and bucks.

More than two-thirds have gone to college and many workers earn six-figure incomes.

 It takes hard work to have achieved success at such a young age.

More than two-thirds of families have multiple workers in the labor force, gravitating to jobs as managers, executives and white-collar professionals.

More than eight in ten drive alone to work, pulling out of the driveways of large single-family homes valued at 50 percent above the national median.
