Provo is Utah County’s Central Business District. Brandon Fugal on Jessop’s Journeys

(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you push up and down interstate 15, I assure you have noticed Brandon Fugal’s name on signs. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to connect with the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to financial tendencies.

1 of the most important traits Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We visited about a new constructing climbing in downtown Provo referred to as “Freedom Commons,” and is the initially “Class A” place of work place creating in Provo in over a ten years (watch the movie to get the relaxation of the aspects).

My goal with Jessop’s Journeys is to find “people, locations and items you may not know about.” Brandon shared the next information about economic advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest city (founded in 1850), Provo has always been and continues to be the middle of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Most significant City in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Center for schooling, healthcare, government, transportation, hospitality
  • Thrilling, livable, historic downtown (the only one particular in Utah County)

There are much more than 20,000 included communities in The united states. When quite a few are prospering, other folks are battling. Provo Town is location the city standard, not just regionally, but nationally, as proven by its currently being named the nation’s 2001’s Very best-Operate Town.

So what is the key sauce that Provo City has disincluded that has earned them the moniker “Central Business enterprise District of Utah County?”

Town leaders phone it “The Provo Benefit.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can sign up for a monthly electronic mail at to uncover out.


All people has a story. I strongly really feel that “stories have power”. Possibilities are that if you are likely by means of a little something, that a person else in all probability has as very well. The shared ordeals we individuals have can enable every single other. That my mate will make the level that tales “help us comprehend each other.”

You do not have to concur with everybody, but in my opinion, if persons would choose more time finding to being aware of more about some others and where they are coming from, we just may possibly find out that we have additional similarities than discrepancies.
