The Town of Kingsville has launched a new business retention & expansion survey to help better understand the future plans and needs of local businesses and how business owners/managers view the community as a place to do business.

The information from the survey will be used to plan future economic development activities focused on the top priorities of local businesses.

The Town of Kingsville has retained MDB Insight  who will be working with municipal staff to review the completed surveys for challenges and opportunities that the local business community is facing.

Businesses are encouraged to participate in the telephone survey and be aware that since selection is random, they may be contacted between October 31st, 2019 and March 7th, 2020.

The surveys will be conducted over a period of six months in three separate intervals over this time. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

Individual business follow-up meetings will be conducted by the Town of Kingsville’s volunteer taskforce after each survey interval. A selection of businesses will be identified for an in-person meeting with a taskforce member to more fully understand individual business challenges and opportunities.

“Kingsville is fortunate to have a unique business profile. Our thriving downtown is surrounded by traditional agricultural farming, cottage industry, and specialty greenhouse industry,” stated Kingsville Mayor, Nelson Santos. “The data collected during the course of this BR+E will help us identify ways we can assist the local business community with business growth and development, tourism initiatives and business attraction across all sectors.”

The project launched in September 2019 and is scheduled to last until May 2020 when all the results of the surveys are gathered and analyzed. A presentation and release of the final results will provide this valuable information to Council and the community.
