Rice Lake Economic Development Corporation & Rice Lake Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to Rice Lake!

The Rice Lake Economic Development Corporation (RLEDC) website provides information about Rice Lake, Wisconsin to prospective businesses, prospective employees of area businesses, and to their families. It contains pertinent information related to our strong industrial base, our strong educational system with tailored industry support, together with great shopping, recreational facilities/activities and medical facilities/support.

Our website works in concert with the Rice Lake Area Chamber of Commerce (RLACC) website, and you can access back to this page from anywhere in their website by clicking on the words “ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT”. While this site principally incorporates industrial development, other development opportunities include Commercial, Downtown, Mall, and Retail. Follow these links for specific information.

We promise to get back to you promptly, even if we have not researched and completed the answer to your question.

RLEDC is a volunteer organization that works with existing industries, potential companies looking to expand or relocate; start-up companies that wish to explore the benefits of Rice Lake or Barron County. Over its 40+ year existence, we have been very successful in attracting diversified business and assisting existing industrial and technology companies.

RLEDC is a primary contact for new industries wishing to relocate to Rice Lake, and for existing businesses support. We are the City of Rice Lake’s agent in the sale of City owned industrial and technology park properties. Our mission is to assist the City of Rice Lake in retaining existing and attracting new industrial businesses that will provide good-paying jobs, improve the City’s tax base and attract a talented workforce to the community.
