TRIDEC - Tri-City Development Council



We're at the center of it all.

Right in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, the Tri-Cities is the perfect place to grow your business.

With a well-established and ever-growing technology sector, as well as a skilled workforce featuring some of the sharpest minds in the country, the region is a great choice for your booming tech business. But the area is so much more than that, featuring world class food and beverage manufacturers, agritourism like you’ve never seen before, and a quality of life and cost of living that are hard to beat. When it comes to business we offer better locations, faster permitting all in a fist pumping environment.


Established in 1963, The Tri-City Nuclear Industrial Council, today known as Tri-City Development Council (TRIDEC) was organized for the purpose of promoting and advancing the economic strength and diversity in Benton and Franklin counties.

TRIDEC is managed by a 39-member Board of Directors, comprised of representatives from the local business community, private sector leaders, and organizations committed to creating and supporting jobs in our region.
