Success Stories and Testimonials



Video Highlight: Asheville, North Carolina, is an inspiring place to call home. Talented local business leaders and entrepreneurs across Buncombe County are creating and distributing innovative products that impact people throughout America and worldwide.

The EDC's support extends to a range of industries, from technology, to manufacturing, as well as the fast-growing Asheville breweries. New Belgium Brewing's  investment in the Western North Carolina economy is slated at $175 million.  New Belgium CEO and co-founder Kim Jordan is happy with the choice of location: “From the deep sense of community to the rich, natural environment and the opportunity to revitalize a brownfield site near a vibrant downtown, Asheville has everything we've been looking for in a location for our second brewery.” New Belgium is investing in Asheville not only for the existing beer culture, but for the quality of the water, and the quality of life.
