Overview :: What's this site about?

A prominent participant in the founding of Pennsylvania, The City of Chester once again finds itself making history – both locally and nationally. Its explosive rate of residential, commercial and industrial development has brought an influx of jobs and made a sizeable impact on the local economy. Companies of all sizes – from family-owned retail stores to small businesses and large corporations – are now, more than ever, looking to Chester as a viable option to not only base their operations, but to spend their free time.

Located in the heart of Delaware County's emerging commercial epicenter and mere minutes from Philadelphia International Airport, regional trains, I-95, I-476 and hundreds of thousands of potential employees, Chester meets the location needs of both traditional and new economy businesses. Since 1996, the city has witnessed a commitment of over a billion dollars on projects in the city including Widener University, Crozer-Keystone Health System, University Technology Park, The Wharf at Rivertown and Harrah's Chester.

In response to this monumental growth, Chesteryes.com was created to provide a central location, an online hub, for people and businesses to access current information on the exciting happenings in the city. Take a few minutes and explore the site. From waterfront development to Harrah's Chester Downs, big things are happening in the city. It's no wonder, every day more and more people are saying YES to Chester!
