Businesses Moving To Emmaus

New Business Checklist

  • Talk to other Emmaus business owners. They’ve already been there, so they can help in ways few others can. Many are more than happy to share their experiences.
  • Call the Emmaus Main Street Partners for knowledge about available properties, resources with EMSP and GLVCC membership, and local contact information.
  • For questions regarding regulations concerning your property (signage, inspections, permits, recycling and zoning), refer to the Code of Ordinances or contact the Borough of Emmaus Codes Office at 610-967-1322.
  • Go to the Emmaus Public Library. From demographics to Borough information, it’s full of useful information.
  • Download the Small Business Administration’s helpful Checklist for Going Into Business.
  • Educate yourself on who can help you within the Borough of Emmaus. The Emmaus Borough Council meets regularly, plan to attend a Council meeting. See the calendar of events and meetings.
  • For businesses opening a food establishment, information on food safety, equipment regulations and inspections, contact the Borough Health Inspector, Garry Ritter, via email. 
  • Download the new business welcome packet (PDF).
