Welcome to Bay County,



Brian Brink
President, Brink Terminals
"If you're not used to working with local government and knowing all the ins and outs because there's a lot more to it than just making the decisions that this is what we want to do. But, Bay Future was able to direct us with the right people to quickly move things along."
James Fabiano II
President of Fabiano Brothers, Inc.
"We consolidated most of our facilities into the Monitor Twp. facility that we're in now in May of 2009. Within 18 months we were able to make some acquisitions that forced us to add on to the 200,000 square feet we already had here, put an addition on and completed it in 2011 adding 100,000 square feet. And with the infrastructure of the highway where it's at with US -10 right in front of us, one mile from I-75, we couldn't have picked a better place. Bay County is it!

We've all got to work together. I need Bay Future... I need local governments working together with us because without it things like this just won't happen."
Mark Flegenheimer
President & CEO, Michigan Sugar Company
"As a company that has been in business in Bay County for nearly 115 years, we have a deep and strong foundation here. We believe that as Bay County prospers and grows, it provides a great place for our employees to live, work, and play. Bay Future's strategic plan will accelerate the positive things happening in our area."
Mary Kulis
Area Manager, Consumers Energy
"With competition for jobs and development at an all-time high, there is no standing still. Our peers throughout the state and region are conducting economic fundraising efforts right now. We have the right team and a strong strategic plan in place at Bay Future to deliver results. I am confident business and community leaders will support Bay Future's efforts to achieve sustainable growth and prosperity for our community."
Tim Boutell
CEO/COO, Firehouse Soft Car Wash/Boutell Enterprise
"As a lifelong resident of the area, it's important that Bay County continue to grow. Our quality of life is second to none and it is critical to have the resources available to attract new business, retain firms that are currently here while developing young professionals and entrepreneurs. As the economy improves, we must join together as a community to ensure the economic future of Bay County. The Future Is Now Campaign is the right plan at the right time and I challenge everyone to consider making an investment when called on."
