Any company thinking about moving its business to Victoria would do well to remember the old truism: location, location, location.
The city boasts an ideal geographical location, only 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico and within a two-hour drive of the large metropolitan cities of Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
“We are the right distance to everywhere,” says Randy Vivian, president and CEO of the Victoria Chamber of Commerce. Victoria is known as “The South Texas Crossroads” due to its convenient location at the intersection of U.S. highways 59, 77 and 87. This prime locale for trucking firms and other distribution companies combines with well-developed rail and port infrastructure, and Victoria Regional Airport makes the community ideal for industries that rely on efficient transportation avenues.
Victoria is also home to a strategically located industrial complex called Lone Tree Business Park. Within the seven-county network that comprises the Golden Crescent, Victoria is a center of retail, health care, industry and education.
The city is already a regional hub for a seven-county area, and it serves as a retail trade center for more than 220,000 people.
