Business Retention & Expansion (BRE)

The Stafford Department of Economic Development has an established business retention and development strategy that supports the growth and success of companies throughout the County.  Our goal is to connect existing businesses with the information, resources, and programs to improve the overall business climate.

Stafford can help you establish and grow your business:

  • Provide a single point of contact
  • Facilitate your project's development review and the permit process
  • Advocate within County government and assist companies through the necessary regulatory requirements and approvals
  • Identify "who's who" in local government departments.

For assistance with workforce development, business expansions, exports to foreign markets, development financing or gap funding, schedule an on-site visit.  (540) 658-8681 or email at

Cask has enjoyed the benefit of being located in an area rich with major defense and Federal organizations, academic institutions and commercial entities, where there exists a diversely talented pool of professionals, ready to embrace Stafford County’s continued economic growth.  We are excited to be a part of this growth and look forward to a lasting partnership with the County and the local community.”
