As a Great Lakes port city, Green Bay offers an ideal atmosphere for business development while providing world-class schools, neighborhoods, cultural events and recreational opportunities. More than a dozen major corporations are headquartered within Green Bay city limits.
The City of Green Bay is the economic hub of Northeastern Wisconsin, and the flagship city of a combined metropolitan region of over 260,000. Best known as home to the world famous Green Bay Packers, the Green Bay region also hosts large concentrations of major industries including manufacturing, defense, medical, education, and finance and insurance. The City has a fervent pro business attitude, and has gained a reputation for its creative and determined economic development efforts. Much of these efforts have been focused on the city’s downtown area. Within the past 12 months, Schrieber Foods and Associated Banc Corp – the largest bank headquartered in Wisconsin – have moved forward with significant new developments downtown which will result in tens of millions of new capital investment.
The City is also the gateway to the renown recreational havens of northern Wisconsin including the spectacular Door Peninsula (known as the Cape Cod of the Midwest), and Wisconsin’s Great Northwoods and Lake Country. It is truly the “northstar” in a chain of great cities, including Chicago and Milwaukee that line the western shore of Lake Michigan – a region that has been variously dubbed the “Northcoast” or “Freshcoast” because of its abundant fresh water resources, outdoor lifestyle, and global connections. Green Bay is well linked by road, rail, air and water to other major cities that make up the Great Lakes urban archipelago.
