Hutto, Texas has undergone a transformation over the past decade from a sleepy, rural Texas farm town of 1,250 in the year 2000 to one of Austin’s fastest growing suburbs. The impetus for Hutto’s exponential growth has been quality, affordable housing and quality public schools coupled with the opening of SH-130 on the new Central Texas Turnpike System. Low crime, quality schools, moderate taxes, and convenient access to the Austin region and state have resulted in honors such as Hutto being named one of the “Top 100 Places in Major Markets to Locate Your Business” by Southern Business & Development as well as a host of other accolades. All of the growth and change has not eroded a strong sense of community pride that has permeated Hutto since it was first settled in the mid 1800’s.

“Having a small manufacturing business in Hutto for 12 years, I knew of the [Hutto] EDC, but never made the time to actually understand what they do or more importantly, what they could do for me… [Eventually] the conversation changed from generalities to specifics and I could tell they knew more about doing business in Hutto than anyone I had ever talked with before. They know Hutto, the surrounding area and have the pulse of what’s happening now and tomorrow. They connect businesses, making introductions to customers, vendors/suppliers. They know who’s in town, what they might need and what they might offer your business. The EDC is about people doing business with people.”
