Thinking of opening a business in Brea? This innovative city is located in North Orange County, where California's five most populous counties converge. The City of Brea's Community Development Department is your one stop shop for all things Brea Business. Let us help you make your business vision a reality in Brea!

Small Town, Big Spirit

Start the morning with a walk through the heart of the city on the Tracks at Brea Trail. Keep the workday alive with a late afternoon coffee or catch a movie with friends or co-workers in vibrant Downtown Brea. End the day at the Village at La Floresta or at the Brea Mall where you can experience fashion, fitness, dining and more. This is just the typical day of a Brea resident and working professional. This is Brea.
