One of the Tacony CDC’s core roles is to promote the neighborhood’s existing businesses and
attract new ones to the ever-growing Torresdale Avenue corridor. We strive to make it easier
for businesses interested in a Tacony location to open their doors. We also actively seek
potential business owners and encourage them to take a look at our neighborhood.
If you are interested in learning more about the business climate in Tacony, take a look at
our brief introductory document. We have also compiled a resource guide to many of
Philadelphia and Pennsylvania’s small business resources, ranging from places to go for
business development and legal advice, information on tax credits and grants, and contact
information for all of the relevant City offices. Years in the business of helping
businesses has also put us in touch with local lenders for all financing needs; we can help
you find the right source of capital for your next project!
We also suggest skimming Philadelphia’s Commerce Department website, which has developed a
comprehensive set of programs aiming to make it easier for residents to open businesses in
the city. Their Business Services page is another great place to start researching what it
will take to launch your next project.
Our office stays up to date on current opportunities and administers some small incentives
programs directly. We encourage you to contact us whether you are considering a new store, restaurant, or professional office!
