The City of Grapevine (TX) has launched online data tools on their website, ChooseGrapevineTX.com, to promote the region for business relocation and expansion. The online data portal makes information, research and analysis instantly accessible to community stakeholders, site selectors, realtors and existing businesses seeking market intelligence to make informed decisions.
Uniquely position at the crossroads of several major highways and directly connected to DFW International Airport (3rd busiest airport in the world), we offer a geographic advantage that simply cannot be matched by our competitors. Equidistant to both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth and encompassing one of the largest manmade lakes in Texas (Lake Grapevine), our city has numerous amenities that aren’t matched anywhere.
The City of Grapevine has a collection of strong and diverse industries that makes us both successful and resilient. Despite our growth, Grapevine still maintains a small town feel and personality, best exemplified by our historic South Main Street district.
“The new online tools from GIS Planning help us showcase our assets and tell our story in a more dynamic way,” says Bob Farley, Director of Economic Development for the City of Grapevine.
The interactive tools are mobile-friendly and put key data at the fingertips of website visitors. These include the sites and buildings property locator, ZoomProspector, and standalone data tools known as Intelligence Components on different pages. These are all provided by GIS Planning, the industry leader in economic development software. As site selectors or prospective investors assess possible locations, they can obtain the most accurate and up-to-date information on thousands of variables. Existing businesses and potential investors can research, analyze and export local and regional data on demographics, consumer spending, labor force, business, industry, infrastructure, and other GIS points of interest. Research can be easily exported, emailed or shared on social media networks.
“Market research shows that more than 98% of site selectors research locations online before contacting local officials,” explains Anatalio Ubalde, co-founder and co-managing director of GIS Planning Inc., the industry leading company that built the data tools. "You need to provide this critical data online when they get there or risk losing potential investment. With these data tools, Grapevine, Texas is open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
