(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you drive up and down interstate 15, I promise you have viewed Brandon Fugal’s name on indicators. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to simply call the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it will come to financial trends.

1 of the biggest traits Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We visited about a new setting up mounting in downtown Provo named “Freedom Commons,” and is the to start with “Class A” business room creating in Provo in around a ten years (look at the video clip to get the relaxation of the details).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to locate “people, locations and things you may not know about.” Brandon shared the pursuing details about economic growth in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest town (established in 1850), Provo has often been and carries on to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley

  • Center for education, medical, authorities, transportation, hospitality
  • Thrilling, livable, historic downtown (the only one particular in Utah County)

There are a lot more than 20,000 incorporated communities in The us. When a lot of are prospering, many others are battling. Provo Town is location the town standard, not just regionally, but nationally, as shown by its remaining named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Operate Town.

So what is the mystery sauce that Provo Town has disincluded that has attained them the moniker “Central Organization District of Utah County?”

Metropolis leaders simply call it “The Provo Benefit.” What do not you know about Provo? You can indicator up for a month to month e mail at to find out.


Absolutely everyone has a tale. I strongly experience that “stories have power”. Probabilities are that if you are heading by means of one thing, that a person else in all probability has as effectively. The shared encounters we humans have can assist each and every other. That my buddy makes the issue that tales “help us have an understanding of each other.”
