WHY CHOOSE SULLIVAN COUNTY?
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, for two straight years Sullivan County’s job growth numbers were at the top of New York State rankings. That is no coincidence. Sullivan County created over 3,000 new jobs and approximately $2 billion dollars of investment in just three years. A large portion of that investment is in the hospitality sector and while we cannot open those venues yet, when we are able, we are poised with investments committed to new projects, to grow that sector faster than we have before. What we knew for decades is now becoming more of a realization to many. That the Sullivan Catskills is where opportunity resides today. Far enough away, but close to major markets in the Tri-State area and beyond.
Investments in Hospitality & Tourism, Healthcare, Logistics, Light Manufacturing, Food Processing and Agribusiness sectors have driven the economy before COVID-19 and will continue to do so once we have overcome this setback. The next two years will see an additional $200 million invested and 800 new jobs created. All with the room to grow, while living in a bucolic setting that has attracted visitors from throughout the world. Top travel and tourist publications like Lonely Planet and others rank Sullivan County as one of the top 10 best places to visit. Others have dubbed the Sullivan Catskills the ‘New Hamptons’.
