Avon's close proximity to Indianapolis (just a few miles from the Hendricks and Marion County border) and diverse housing market make it a favorite for major retailers, professional service firms, and manufacturing companies.

Incorporated in 1996, the Town first attracted professional service firms (insurance, accounting, real estate) that were quickly followed by a wealth of retail outlets. Today, U.S. 36 is lined with a variety of retail outlets and dining establishments that provide an enviable climate for locating a business. Convenient access to major interstate and highways as well as air and rail transport provide further incentives for economic development.

Established in 1996, the Greater Avon Chamber of Commerce provides services to the growing business community. Currently, the chamber has more than 600 members and meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Prestwick Gazebo.
