Why is Marble Falls such a great place to do business? We’ll start with a surface-scratching list of ten reasons why we excel at solving the live, work, and play formula.
1. HIGHLAND LAKES HUB
“I hate the Highland Lakes,” said No One Ever. If Texas is the best state in the greatest nation, and the Hill Country is Texas’s sweet spot, and the Highland Lakes is the best part of the Hill Country, and Marble Falls is the hub of the Highland Lakes, then we’re in some pretty select company.
2. NO CRAZY TRAFFIC
Proximity without the congestion. If you need to get to Austin, you can enjoy an easy, scenic, 45-minute drive on Highway 71, which is a much more pleasant commute than 45 minutes (or more) on I-35 or Mopac with hundreds of thousands of your neighbors.
3. MORE MONEY
People spend a lot of money in Marble Falls. With record-breaking sales tax reports and hotel receipts, Marble Falls is more economically prosperous now than ever before. With that said…
4. MORE BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
…There are ample opportunities for new or expanded operations in our market. With a primary retail trade area population of 60,000 and a secondary trade area population of 130,000, most sectors still suffer from leakage to other cities.
5. REAL ESTATE PRICE POINTS FOR EVERYONE
Available properties. Marble Falls has a variety of options to serve a variety of needs. From high-traffic locations on US Highway 281 to large tracts with stunning vistas to quaint Downtown properties, there is real estate available at all price points for all business types.
6. IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE
There is nothing cookie-cutter about Marble Falls. We’re different without being too different. Marble Falls’s tourism tagline is “In the middle of everywhere,” but our unofficial motto is a spin on Austin’s favorite saying. Around here, we like to say: “Keep Austin weird.”
7. UNDENIABLE SMALL TOWN CHARM
Community charm and character still reign supreme in Marble Falls. We can focus on progress and welcome new businesses and residents to the area, but no one wants Marble Falls to become innately different from what it is today and impact the reasons why people are drawn to the community in the first place.
8. WATER RECREATION
Lake Marble Falls, Lake LBJ, and Inks Lake. These are three beautiful lakes offering an abundance of recreational opportunities—and they’re all full of water.
9. HEALTHCARE ACCOMMODATIONS
Expanded healthcare. With the completion of Scott & White’s 66,000-square-foot specialty clinic in June, and the opening of a 46-bed regional hospital by the end of next year, Marble Falls will be able to better accommodate the area’s healthcare needs.
