Do Business Here


Welcome Packet

We’re working on a comprehensive, all-your-questions-in-one-place packet that will assist in your transition to Sewickley. Whether you’re a new business, a realtor looking for information, or just moving to the neighborhood, we want you to feel comfortable and informed. It’s not quite up and running yet, but please check back often for updates.

The Welcome Packet is a project of the Economic Restructuring Committee.

Business Development

By promoting a diverse and vibrant business district by increasing foot traffic and decreasing vacancies, Explore Sewickley has made a solid commitment to business development.

Since we have access to local commercial real estate information through Jennifer’s work as a Howard Hanna Real Estate Agent, Explore Sewickley has become an amazing resource for new businesses navigating through the process of opening. From helping to find the right space to the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony, Explore Sewickley has helped many new businesses become informed and get involved in the Sewickley community.

If you are looking for a space or have an idea for a business you want to open, contact us at 412.741.7530 or info@exploresewickley.com.

Ribbon Cuttings for New Businesses

When you’re opening a new business, there are already a lot of things on your mind. What better way to be welcomed into the Village than with some free PR, a pair of giant gold scissors and a party?
Explore Sewickley will coordinate a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Mayor Brian Jeffe and the Borough of Sewickley. We send out notifications to local media and other businesses to truly welcome you as a new business.The ribbon cutting ceremony includes a proclamation read by the Mayor, the cutting of the grand opening ribbon and lots of photo opportunities.Since Explore Sewickley began, we have celebrated over 50 new businesses opening their doors.
To schedule a ribbon cutting ceremony, please contact us at 412.741.7530 or info@exploresewickley.com.

Monthly Happy Hour

Each month, Explore Sewickley hosts a monthly happy hour for local business owners with light refreshments, music, and great conversation on the first Thursday of the month from 5:00 - 6:30pm. Come hang out, learn about what’s going on in the Village, and mingle with other business owners.

Happy Hours are typically held at Explore Sewickley (418 Beaver Street), but sometimes will be held at local businesses. For more information about the Happy Hour, send us an email at info@exploresewickley.com.
