LIMA — The number is astonishing, 80 percent of decisions by a company looking to open its doors in a community are made before it ever contacts local officials.

Anyone whose job it is to attract business to Allen County knows it means finding a way to reach the leaders of companies they’ve never knew were looking.

“We really don’t have much control in that decision process,” said Jeff Sprague, president and CEO of Allen Economic Development Group.

But that’s changing.

On Monday, Sprague and other local economic development officials unveiled a website aimed at marketing Lima, Allen County and the smaller towns in the community.

The website provides a wealth of information on the community along with educational videos highlighting the community’s strengths.  More here.
