Chamber Welcome

Welcome to the City of Arcadia!
Arcadia prides itself as being a premier business location in the San Gabriel Valley and the region. In 2017, the city was awarded as the Most Business Friendly City in Los Angeles County by the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation in recognition of our Above and Beyond approach to fostering business development and economic growth in our community.

Within our borders are numerous retail and service establishments, the world-famous Santa Anita Park, the outstanding Westfield Santa Anita mall, an eclectic mix of restaurants, a burgeoning nightlife and superior medical services. To encourage business growth and to assist new business development in Arcadia, the city offers a concierge style Business Assistance Program designed to support the customized needs of business owners and operators. The Business Assistance Program can be accessed by calling (626) 574-5414 or by visiting

In addition to a thriving business community, the quality of life in Arcadia is without peer. You really have to see Arcadia to truly appreciate its splendor. Our tree-lined streets, exceptional public schools and renowned recreation and leisure-time services make the Arcadia experience second to none. Arcadia is diverse, hosting residents and entrepreneurs from around the world who continuously demonstrate their passion and commitment to community. Arcadians watch out for each other, we volunteer over 38,000 hours each year and we always have a smile for a friend, neighbor or visitor. This is the true hallmark of Arcadia.

On behalf of the city, I want to thank the Chamber membership for your continuous involvement in civic affairs. The Arcadia Chamber is very active, serving not only as an advocate for business, but also providing services and hosting special events that appeal to all facets of the community. For example, the annual Taste of Arcadia event in September is a wonderful Arcadia tradition!

The city is always here to support our residents and businesses in any way we can. Please feel free to contact us at any time to help achieve your destiny in Arcadia. I guarantee the experience will be Above and Beyond your expectations!
