Why Atascadero

The City of Atascadero, the “Center of It All” is conveniently situated in the center of San Luis Obispo County, and is the halfway point between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Located alongside highway 101 the City is located in the middle of the Paso Robles wine country, 20 minutes from California’s Pacific coastline, 20 minutes from California Polytechnic State University and 20 miles from the San Luis Obispo County Airport. With the third largest population in the County, Atascadero is a premiere location for business.

Atascadero currently offers an exceptional opportunity for cultivating economic growth and prosperity. The downtown area features historic charm, and is in the process of revitalization. Rents and land costs are affordable for retail businesses that are highly desired by the community. The City offers a business friendly environment to build a new company, re-locate or expand an existing company and is aggressively working to attract business. Residents enjoy an extremely high quality of life with award-winning schools, and recreational opportunities consisting of lakes, parks, golf courses, a zoo, trail systems, and perfect year-round Mediterranean weather.

Specialty restaurants and art galleries that have recently opened have shown remarkable success in Atascadero because they are sought after by local residents. With a 10 screen cinema complex opening soon downtown, and plans for a major shopping center anchored by Wal-Mart on the North side of the City, Atascadero expects to see more opportunities for businesses to invest in and profit in the community’s success. Tourism continues to expand and with the ever growing success of the local wine industry, wine industry-related opportunities abound.
