About Jefferson Parish

The advantages of doing business in Jefferson Parish are numerous. An educated workforce, excellent healthcare and proximity to several distinguished colleges and universities are just some of the benefits of living, working and doing business in Jefferson Parish. Proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi River and to major highways and rail lines give Jefferson Parish a strategic advantage in terms of accessibility into the parish, to the rest of the nation and beyond our borders.

To enhance Jefferson’s already thriving business climate, JEDCO is currently undertaking major economic development initiatives — the development of the Churchill Technology & Business Park and the Jefferson EDGE 2020. Located near the Huey P. Long Bridge, the Tournament Players Club golf course, and NOLA Motorsports on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish, the Park’s 500 acres are anchored by the Patrick F. Taylor Science & Technology School, the Business Innovation Center, JEDCO’s administrative offices and a conference center.  Furthermore, JEDCO will soon welcome Delgado Community College’s River City Campus and School of Advanced Manufacturing to the park.

JEDCO plays an active role in furthering the progress of Jefferson Parish’s economic climate. Through our business incubator and loan programs, tax incentives and informational services, JEDCO has aided in the success of thousands of businesses. For a company considering relocating to or expanding within Jefferson Parish, JEDCO will develop strategies and an attractive incentive package to help the company thrive in the parish’s business climate.

JEDCO invites you to take a look at what Jefferson Parish can offer you and your business, and encourages you to call us so that we can assist you in your business endeavor.
