A City Where Family and Business Both Benefit

Finding the perfect location for your business is your utmost priority, but why should you have to give up a great quality of life?

You shouldn’t. In Goose Creek, we have the best of both worlds. Our population is young and diverse, our public works are dependable, and our recreation department is one of the regions’ finest with modern facilities and activities for all ages. We’re also a short drive from one of the most important seaports on the east coast and one of the largest South Carolina cities: Charleston.

In short, business in Goose Creek is the best of both worlds: big-city amenities with a small-community feel.

Demographics

Our people are our greatest asset, so you should know a little more about them.

With the naval weapons station located in our backyard, we’ve always had a strong military personnel presence and a healthy mix of singles and family units. But as Charleston has continued to grow, we have watched our demographics change to reflect a younger population with more spending capital and a desire to enjoy all the Lowcountry has to offer.

By the Numbers
32.8% growth since 2010 (and still growing!)
$390M in economic overflow that new businesses can capitalize on
25-44, largest age bracket of residents
33% of our population is single
47% of our population are married couples
70% of our residents own their own homes
