Dream – a 3.2 million s/f en- tertainment destination at the Meadowlands expected to attract 40 million visitors annually. Bergen is also where Oreo cookies are manufactured daily – 10,000 per minute in fact - along Yoo-hoo chocolate milk to wash them down. But it’s more than the success of the shopping and sugar sec- tors that make Bergen County an ideal location for corpora- tions, retailers, manufacturers and, well, shoppers. It’s our AAA bond rating, tax base of nearly $170 billion, 508k+ skilled workers, 50k+ business- es, $99,701 average household income and proximity to New York City. Our quality of life isn’t too shabby either with 950k+ resi- dents, 73 sought after school districts, over 15 colleges and universities, a diverse array of housing options and plentiful entertainment venues. Then there’s our 9,000+ acres of park to enjoy all year round between golf, hiking, skiing, soccer, out- door concerts, family picnics, movies under the stars, cultural festivals, Winter Wonderland and so much more. With federal “Opportunity Zones” located throughout the county now is the perfect time to take the “opportunity” to look Bergen County over.

What’s more, thousands of small businesses and Main Street shops line our 70 mu- nicipalities, and since we’re talking numbers, there are over 1,500 manufacturers within the County’s radius. With figures like this, Ber- gen County’s looking sweeter
