The Fairfax City Economic Development Office in partnership with the Economic Development Authority is launching an online business directory.  Our goal with the directory is to provide a handy and user-friendly online resource for residents and visitors to easily find businesses and services around the city. 

Residents and visitors will find the directory on the City’s Economic Development Office website, City Business Directory and it will include a searchable listing of all registered Fairfax City businesses. 

Listing your business in the online directory is free and available only to Fairfax City businesses. Each listing will include the following information: business name, logo, address, business description, phone number, hours of operation, and link to your website. 

Each business will have the opportunity to classify itself within various categories.  Users will be able to search alphabetically or by category.  Once an entry is received, reviewed, and approved, each business will get a confirmation email that its listing has been added to the database.

To get started, all you need is to pull together the information below. Once you have it, visit City Business Directory to register your business.
