Prince George's County EDC Fulfills its Mission One Business at a Time

Largo, MD - Jim Coleman, President and CEO of the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation, is pleased to join the Washingtonian Magazine in touting Susan Gage Caterers as one of the best in this region.

The mission of the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation is to attract, retain and expand business in Prince George's County. There is no better example of fulfilling this mission than the story behind the Susan Gage Caterers; a family-owned business begun by a self-taught chef who started catering for her friends in 1986 that has moved from a home in Ft. Washington, MD, to a 32,000 SF state of the art facility in Hyattsville, MD.

Ms. Gage considered moving into Virginia as the catering business increased to more than 2500 events annually and more than 110 employees. Operating out of a 20,000 SF space became difficult, and more space was needed. With the assistance of the Economic Development Corporation, Ms. Gage was able to tap into County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III's Economic Development Incentive Fund (EDIF). EDC also provided permitting assistance and worked with the State to procure Enterprise Zone tax credits, which helped her secure a larger space.

"Susan Gage Caterers commitment to expand its operations and remain in Prince George's County adds to Prince George's success as a significant employment center," said EDC President and CEO Jim Coleman. "We have successfully retained a company with 125 jobs in Prince George's County; this is what economic development is all about."
