doing Business in Ferndale

Ferndale has long been known as a destination for entrepreneurs and those seeking business development and expansion. The City receives top marks from retailers who seek excellent demographics, cultural diversity, and solid household incomes. For industrialists, Ferndale's location provides accessibility to commercial rail and major interstates I-696 and I-75. 

Our goal is to help Ferndale businesses build, grow, and flourish, and that means making it easy for owners and entrepreneurs. From at-your-fingers access to permits and applications to our unique Mayor’s Business Council, we’ve got the information you need to help you succeed.
