If you’re looking for a place to start, relocate, or expand your business, look no further. Carteret has become one of the premier municipalities within central New Jersey for business and commercial growth, and we invite you to discover why.

Over the past decade, our town has undergone tremendous changes, remaking itself from a smokestack industrial town into a more commercial, retail-based municipality. Much of the development in Carteret since 2003 has focused on mixed-use commercial and residential development, as well as the remediation of abandoned and vacant properties to create thousands of new jobs and residential locations. Carteret and its aggressive pro-business tactics have been recognized throughout New Jersey, including our innovative public-private partnerships and construction of the state-of-the-art RWJ Fitness and Wellness Center, the new Marina District, Theater District PAC and Cultural Arts Center, mixed-use projects and numerous new residential opportunities. 

Should you be interested in joining the progress underway in Carteret, we are ready and able with the necessary incentives to ensure the move makes sense for you. The Carteret Business Partnership, the non-profit entity that manages our Special Improvement District, offers a wide variety of programs designed to ensure your business is successful. Additionally, the borough’s status as an Urban Enterprise Zone allows you to take advantage of numerous state benefits, including a 3.4375% sales tax that will draw customers to your business and making it an ideal place to call home.
