Henderson continues to thrive, and sustaining our growth requires attracting a diverse range of businesses. Our city was voted among the best places to live in Nevada. This achievement is partly due to an impressive variety of activities, better than average housing prices, and exceptional pro sports franchises like the Henderson Silver Knights. All of this supports the atmosphere that makes it so desirable to live here.
Despite the pandemic challenges, the economic outlook for this city is strong. Let’s explore Henderson’s booming success and what it means for economic development and job growth.
Are Henderson Businesses Expanding?
Many businesses in Henderson are expanding, which is excellent news for the economy and job market. Henderson offers a pro-business environment that’s much different from tax-ridden California.

Population growth is steady and higher than the national average, which means more businesses are needed to serve the residents.
