Shawnee has so much to offer to so many different industries and businesses we decided to give you a quick overview. National chains, independently owned business, and manufacturing industries know we are the best kept secret in the region. Low taxes, low cost of living, and a hard working class of people who love where they live and work make it easy to start or expand your business here. Our trade pull factor proves we are a retail destination pulling from more than 400,000 residents in a 30 mile radius. Our close proximity to Tinker Air Force Base strengthens our retail and housing sectors because people want small town living with big city amenities. Our manufacturing base includes metals, hydraulics, glass, plastics, and more plus the local resources to run them efficiently like a running rail system and an airport. High quality universities and career technology schools afford immediate access to a highly trained workforce. As a rich agricultural and semi-rural community, we enjoy tax incentives and so much more! The only thing we don’t have is you…yet.
