The City of Blaine is an attractive market for businesses and developers. Over the last several years the City has connected with dozens of business owners that are considering Blaine for a new location or a new start up business. Right now the City is focused on a few different industries. The City is always looking to connect with new restaurant groups, both sit down and fast casual. Just this year we have seen several new food options open in Blaine with more on the way. The City continues to look into bringing in a new grocery option to the community. The City is glad to have solid relationships with our existing grocers but there is room for additional competition and grocery styles.
How Can Residents Help?
Many retail and service type businesses have a way for individuals to request a new location for their community. For example, Trader Joe’s has a form on their corporate website to request a store in your community. The City has met with Trader Joe’s and having the community fill out the form does help in those conversations.
You can find the Trader Joe’s request form at BlaineMN.gov/ComeToBlaine.
