Abbeville Economic Development

Whether you are interested in locating in historic downtown or in an industrial park, let us show you all that Abbeville has to offer.

The Abbeville area provides exciting opportunities for businesses. A large labor force, easy transportation network, readily available land and buildings for business relocation and expansion, as well as a strong dedication to economic development to help make our community a place that offers amazing potential for growth and success.

Our Historic Downtown is a designated Cultural District and a Federal Opportunity Zone. Redevelopment projects within Abbeville’s Downtown may be eligible for historic rehabilitation tax incentives and other additional economic incentives. For more information on these tax incentive programs, click here.

Our strategic location in South-Central Louisiana on the banks of the beautiful Vermilion River, is ideal for land and water access to regional metropolitan areas. Abbeville offers critical transport infrastructure including the Port of Vermilion, Chris Crusta Memorial Airport, and easy access to major highways and railways. We offer extensive support systems to assist you with everything from permitting to research assistance and workforce training.

Choosing to invest in Abbeville also means choosing a better quality of life. Enjoy annual events, museums, historic homes, camping, hunting, fishing, biking, boating or golfing. After hours, we’re always socializing with friends and having a great time in the “most Cajun place on earth!”

Chose Abbeville. We’re ready, willing, and able to welcome you and your business!
