Build a future in Bennett!
The Town of Bennett is growing and we are excited to have you join us!
We have a strong sense of community and we believe in “shop small, shop local”. As we experience steady expansion, we are committed to keeping our small town character and we will always extend a helping hand to assist new and existing business owners with local resources.
Bennett is a small town in a large consumer market. Because of our location on the eastern edge of the Denver metropolitan region, local retail establishments draw from a large consumer base west of town (Denver/Aurora) and a solid base east along the I-70 Corridor, as well as the rural communities to the north and south. For many on the eastern plains of Colorado, The Town of Bennett is the most convenient place to shop for food, fuel, financial service, hardware, lumber and farm supplies.
Whether you are ready to get your new business up and running, or you need room to grow and expand your established business, consider Bennett, Colorado. We offer a retail environment that connects the best of both worlds - small town charm and a large consumer market.
