There has never been a better time to start a business in downtown York, PA 

After looking in York, Lancaster and Adams County, my realtor said, "I think you need to look at downtown York." I immediately fell in love with the City, but my guests say it best. They cite the historical architecture, the accessibility to restaurants, art, culture, and boutique shopping as A+ reasons to stay in downtown York. -Joanne Ekeledo, Grace Manor Bed & Breakfast

I wanted my bar to be located in a historic building and not some suburban shopping center, and downtown York has a multitude of historical locations such as the National House. Downtown also provides an opportunity to take advantage of the downtown community, other business owners, merchants and the Central Market. -Scott Eden, Holy Hound TaproomDowntown Inc is actively seeking additional ethnic and specialty eateries, retail shops,
