Where is the best area to start a business in Saint Joe, MO?

Asked by stewbaba, Saint Joseph, MO Sat Apr 21, 2012

We are considering starting up a business in St. Joe, MO. After checking in to the real estate available, it looks like the downtown area is dwindling, even though there are efforts going to revitalize it. There seems to be way too many buildings that are vacant or underutilized. We were downtown on Sunday, and it was like a ghost town. Just recently a very popular Italian restaurant we like decided to relocate out of the downtown area to Frederick Ave. With a majority of the businesses on Frederick and along the Belt Highway, should we focus on the main roads to look for properties? We are new to the area, so do not know the history. We like the downtown area, but it looks like that may not be the best place for us. As with any retail business, location can be critical. Thanks for any insight you can give us for the area.

We have a plan of action for downtown revitalization in effect now. Several businesses are to relocate downtown with hopes of bringing some life back to the area. Some of the businesses that were for sale down there last year have since cancelled their listings in an attempt to contribute to the downtown revitilization. However, to answer your question- yes, definitely main roads. Belt Highway vicinity:)
