When Joe Garcia and his wife Erika opened their Snap Fitness gym, 2040 N. Aurelius Road, in December of last year they immediately recognized the appeal of the Holt-Delhi Township community. “I chose Holt because here I was able to put one of these fitness centers right in the neighborhood, right in the middle of Holt,” Joe said. “I wanted to create a neighborhood gym with a community feel and it’s straightforward and very easy to do business here.”
Since 2009, the number of new businesses in Delhi Township has doubled as the community continues to offer incentives and other various programs to attract business owners to the area. Unveiled at the Oct. 4 Delhi Township Board of Trustees meeting, the Municipal Performance Dashboard—which includes data regarding the township’s fiscal stability, quality of life and economic strength—showed a steady increase in the number of new businesses opening up in the township from 10 new businesses in 2009 to 20 new businesses in 2010.
