Benefit from the City’s Assets, Opportunities & Support

Businesses and investors seeking a location near Seattle, but away from the hassles of the big city, are finding a welcome home in Burien. The city is approachable and offers direct support for business owners, developers and those looking to invest in the city. From site selection to permitting assistance and market support, Burien Economic Development is ready to provide one-on-one support and attention.

Though all businesses benefit from this level of customer service, there are target industries that the council and Burien’s Economic Development Partnership (BEPD) have identified for future growth.
