Benten Technologies chose the City of Manassas as its corporate HQ because of the affordability, location, and ability to engage on a personal level with elected officials and staff.  The City actively recruited our small business and remains engaged with our company and we have had a wonderful experience!

During our site selection and buildout phases, the City of Manassas provided us with exceptionally responsive and positive support. We dealt with a handful of people as opposed to dozens who we would have worked with from a county or large municipality. The support didn't stop there. Recently, Manassas and the Commonwealth of Virginia provided us with Governor's Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund grant for $50,000 to help us with our plant expansion. Those funds will help us triple our manufacturing capability, add jobs, and grow our startup venture. We will tell anyone who asks -- Manassas is a great place to do business!

The Prince William Chamber of Commerce represents over 1,200 businesses in the City of Manassas, Manassas Park and Prince William County. We are proud to call the City of Manassas a partner in success. They have very clearly made it a priority to cultivate a pro-business climate, and that energy has radiated out of City Hall, down Center Street and out to the City’s borders. The proof is in the numerous ribbon cuttings held for new and expanding businesses in Manassas over the last two years. Speaking for the local business community, we would say that the City of Manassas is a great place to do business.

We, at Shining Sol Candle Company, didn't have to think twice when the opportunity presented itself to launch our first retail location in the City of Manassas. There's a sense of community in the City that a lot of the hustle-bustle areas of Northern Virginia lack. The City of Manassas could not have been more accommodating and we have nothing but kudos for everything they have done for us, and continue to do, and we look forward to what the future holds for us both.
