Opening a Business

We welcome the opportunity to help you bring your business to Westbrook. As you prepare to do so there are lots of things for you to think about such as:

  • Capital needs
  • Finding the right lot or building
  • Land use questions
  • Licensing and permitting
  • Regulatory issues

Our team is here to help you get answers to your questions.Contact the Director of Business and Community Relations at 207-591-8101. 


One of the many services we can offer business people and entrepreneurs is to arrange a Monday morning forum where all major city agencies come together to review your business plan and answer your questions. We hope this process will help you make Westbrook your choice for starting or expanding your business. These meetings are typically arranged through our City Planner, Jennie Franceschi and Linda Gain at 207-854-0638.

There is no greater compliment than when we hear - "working with Westbrook is easier than working with any other municipality in the State" - that is what we strive for.
