Raw Minerals / Materials
Construction

Fact is, that 2 years in a row, San Antonio has been rated the #1 City in the Country for new business.

San Antonio is like the opposite of New York.. "If you can't make it here, you can't make it anywhere" ;)

I could write you a book on this subject, but I won't bore you to tears on this site... I've said this many times.. San Antonio has always been a good bet, and it will be a good bet for many years to come.

Nio med is huge here. Both oncology and. Physical rahabilitation are growing fast. After that financial services and tourism are almost 20 percent of our city growth.

The Medical Field is very strong in San Antonio, As is government employment in our 3 military installations, including the largest Military Hospital in the United States.

Tourism is very strong. Also, San Antonio enjoy having the Toyota plant that builds Toyota's pickup trucks.

The Eagle Ford shale - gas and oil industry has recently bloomed into an unbelievable economic boost for the area.

The cultural diversity and History in the community cannot be matched in the entire United States.

Plus, we have the Spurs NBA basketball team.
