Is The Triangle Ready to Grow with JoCo?

Think you know Johnston County?

Unless you’ve visited us recently, there’s a great deal you likely haven’t seen.

Whether viewed as a destination for global corporations, entrepreneurs, families or day-tripping tourists, Johnston County (we call it “JoCo”) truly stands out.

JoCo leaders have made bold moves in creating the assets and amenities of a world-class community. It starts with sensible growth-oriented strategies that connect the county’s businesses and residents with the Research Triangle Region through broad highways, modern infrastructure and collaborative leadership.

Nowhere have those investments yielded more lucrative returns than in education. Our schools are a priority, with a consistent drive for modern instructional facilities and results-oriented curricula designed with input from our employers. Moreover, Johnston Community College works with K-12 schools and area universities to create seamless talent pipelines that provide innovation-minded businesses with the skills-sets of the future.

At the same time, JoCo maintains its historical links to Eastern North Carolina — with a thriving agribusiness sector, ample lands and diverse vibe that welcomes everyone.

That’s why people and companies from around the world have made JoCo their home.  Our highly diversified economy is proof of that: from life sciences, healthcare and advanced manufacturing to logistics, consumer foods and retail, our business landscape has remained resilient in the face of shifting economic winds.

And don’t let JoCo’s downhome charm fool you. We’ve worked hard to shape our corner of the Triangle into a formidable competitor for 21st century opportunities.  As you discover the great things happening here, I hope you’ll agree that now is the ideal time to “Grow With JoCo.”

We hope to welcome you here soon!

Grace and Peace
