Booming Business in Conroe, Texas

No matter which way you slice it, Houston is a fantastic place for commerce, whether it’s big business or a small start-up.

But it’s not just within the actual Houston city limits where the American Dream thrives, but in its suburbs, too.

Take Conroe, which according to the U.S. Census Bureau was the fastest growing city in the nation in 2016, with a population increase of 7.8 percent, a growth rate that is 11 times the national average.

Conroe might have been labeled a sleepy suburb in the past, but that’s certainly not the case anymore. As one of the last northern Houston-adjacent suburbs to be developed, its success is almost inevitable.

A steady influx of business operations has moved to Conroe since the start of this century, contributing to the population doubling in that time.

National chains have opened up stores along 105 going east and west through the city, and major corporations such as Exxon Mobil have campuses nearby. The city has also developed two business parks, a 1,045-acre industrial park, Conroe Park North, and a 248-acre office park, Deison Technology Park, to encourage businesses to call Conroe home, and the city government has taken steps to make the area business-friendly.

In addition, Conroe has a long list of attributes that make it an ideal place to call home. With its history (Did you know Elvis performed on the high school football field in 1955?); outdoor amenities such as Lake Conroe and Sam Houston National Forest which sit just north of it; a low cost of living, and a genuine historical, picturesque, and busy downtown, what’s not to love?

According to the Houston Chronicle, city officials admit it’s quite the balancing act, maintaining the city’s sense of community in conjunction with the rapid growth. However, it looks like they have nothing to worry about. Even as the city diversifies its industries and builds more homes and office parks, the people still cherish their mom-and-pop shops, their history, and events that keep the community’s integrity.
