Ripe Business Opportunities in Caldwell

Are you looking to start or expand your independent business? You’ve probably here because you’ve heard the buzz that downtown Caldwell has been revitalized and sees consistent traffic driven by Indian Creek Plaza’s events and activities.
Since 2013, Destination Caldwell has been advocating, raising money for, and adding life to downtown Caldwell’s retail district in order to create a better economic future for our community and provide opportunity for entrepreneurs like you!

In addition to providing year-round foot traffic though the management and programing of Indian Creek Plaza, Destination Caldwell markets the Sunnyslope Wine Region and AgVenture Trail to tourists. While we entice them to visit the countryside, we recommend starting and ending their day in downtown Caldwell.

We’d love to talk to you about how Caldwell is the perfect opportunity to start any business venture.

Whether you're looking for available office or retail space, financial resources, assistance with your business plan or have questions - Destination Caldwell will help you get started.

You can bet the farm on Caldwell.

The Numbers

Destination Caldwell estimated that since Indian Creek Plaza's construction 500,000 people were drawn to downtown Caldwell specifically to participate in events, activities, or ice skating. The annual traffic on the 7th Street pedestrian bridge, tracked by the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS), saw traffic increase to 395,144 bridge crossings in 2019, up 39% from 283,766 in 2018. Despite the many challenges our community faced in 2020, our numbers are still noteworthy. We had estimated a total of 248,565 pedestrians crossed the bridge to visit Indian Creek Plaza in 2020.

In addition to Destination Caldwell’s events at Indian Creek Plaza, the organization saw increased traffic during the Winter Wonderland Light Display hosted by the City of Caldwell. In December 2019, the monthly traffic across the pedestrian bridge was 144,978, an increase of nearly 55% over December 2018’s 93,716 crossings.

Note, these numbers are based on only one of the main pedestrian though fares in downtown Caldwell and does not account for daily foot traffic already generated by businesses downtown.
