Branford is one of Connecticut’s and the country’s oldest towns, and ideal for new and expanding businesses. We offer full utilities and municipal services, including town water and sewers throughout our commercial zones and full-time, professional police and fire departments, in a business environment that has one of the lowest property tax rates found and triple A bond rating.
Midway between Boston and Manhattan, Branford serves as both a gateway to New England and as a portal to New York. Four exits on I-95 provide direct access to the east coast corridor, with nearby I-91 into northern New England. The town also boasts a new commuter rail station with daily service to New Haven and Yale, connecting to Metro North into New York and Amtrak to Providence and Boston. And while we may appear very Norman Rockwell-like with the quintessentially New England green – Yale was founded here in 1701 – our business community is clearly global and firmly in the 21st century.
