Local Companies Cite Quality of Life

Frederick County’s “Quality of Life” was the top benefit listed by dozens of local businesses in a recent informal poll. The beauty of the Catoctin Mountains, the abundance of rolling farmland, the thriving downtown commercial district and the quaint charm of historic small towns were all mentioned as positive attributes for conducting business in Frederick County.

Business Appreciation Week is an annual event coordinated by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development (OED) as a way to thank local businesses for all that they contribute to the local economy and community in general.
