Working Together, Hand in Hand


Shawnee has so much to offer to so many different industries and businesses we decided to give you a quick overview. National chains, independently owned business, and manufacturing industries know we are the best kept secret in the region. Low taxes, low cost of living, and a hard working class of people who love where they live and work make it easy to start or expand your business here. Our trade pull factor proves we are a retail destination pulling from more than 400,000 residents in a 30 mile radius. Our close proximity to Tinker Air Force Base strengthens our retail and housing sectors because people want small town living with big city amenities.

Katie Landes, MPT, Owner – Action Physical Therapy

“Why have I become a member of Shawnee Forward? Serving and giving back is something that I have always felt led and called to do but didn’t exactly know what that would look like.  I had no idea I would be given this opportunity in abundance when opening my first practice in Shawnee,” Landes said. “Since 2008 I have been blessed to be able to provide quality physical therapy services to the same community that helped raise me.  Expanding my practice to multiple locations and having a highly competent and trained staff has allowed me to focus on investing in the place that I love, Shawnee.”
