Charlotte County offers new and expanding businesses both accessibility and affordability. These factors combined with a strong, productive workforce and business-friendly community leaders create excellent business opportunities for you.


Located in south-central Virginia, Charlotte County is only 1.5 hours from Richmond; 2 hours from Raleigh, North Carolina; and 3 hours from Norfolk’s ports. The county is traversed by four-lane arterial highway 360, and access to I-85 is less than an hour away. Four-lane highway 58 lies half an hour south of the county and highway 460 runs just beyond the county’s northern border, providing easy access to interstates and surrounding metropolitan areas.

Charlotte County’s rural nature means lower land costs and a more favorable tax structure. In addition, its Enterprise Zone designation translates to important financial incentives for qualifying businesses.


Charlotte County’s workforce is a tremendous asset to local businesses. With a public school system that has obtained national recognition for its performance, a local community college, and several four-year colleges located in the surrounding area, Charlotte County offers a prepared workforce and plenty of opportunity for further employee development.


Community leaders work hard to promote growth and development without compromising the small-town atmosphere that defines Charlotte County. Local government officials can assist new business partners in selecting a site that meets their specific needs. They make every effort to expedite the permitting process and help insure that qualifying business owners maximize their incentives.
