Although the median age in Murrieta is 34, there is always a need for more end-of-life care. Renaissance Village on Jackson will open later this year and will offer a wide range of services for our aging residents. Anthem Memory Care on Washington will serve the Alzheimer's and dementia patient needs in our area.
Barons Market is just putting the finishing touches on a former Ralph’s building on California Oaks Road; the San Diego-based specialty market plans to open in mid-January and will bring relief to the many residents within its reach who have been patiently waiting for it to open. The Hat and Dunkin’ Donuts both made their grand debuts in Murrieta last year, also being the first locations for both within Riverside County. The famous pastrami eatery and the coffee/donut mogul have enjoyed throngs of hungry residents since their openings. For the thirsty crowd, 8 Bit Brewing Co. and Garage Brewing Co. opened in Murrieta last year as well. 8 Bit offers several craft brews and a full restaurant, while Garage Brewing opened a distribution site for its current restaurant in Temecula.
For quite some time, Murrieta has had one hotel: the Comfort Inn & Suites on California Oaks Road. In 2015, the city quadrupled that amount with one hotel open and two more under construction. The Residence Inn by Marriott opened in November and the hotel chain immediately started construction on its neighbor, the Courtyard by Marriott. The Hampton Inn is currently under construction on Hancock and is slated to open in early 2016. To help facilitate tourism and business travel to Murrieta, the City worked with the Murrieta Chamber of Commerce and the three hotel owners to create a Tourism Business Improvement District this year, which will create a fund to be used for marketing the city to travelers.
KTM Motorcycles and BMW Motorcycles opened new dealerships in Murrieta’s industrial area, near the Auto Mall. These enthusiast dealerships help to expand the motorcycle/dirt bike culture that has always existed in this valley.
Murrieta is committed to creating and growing more jobs in this community and eventually putting an end to the grueling commute into San Diego and Orange County that so many of our residents endure daily. In 2015, Murrieta hosted the grand opening of its Murrieta Innovation Center, a business incubator for start-up technology companies. Currently, the center has a handful of technology start-ups working fervently to become viable businesses. The center also boasts as many business service providers, such as SCORE, InSoCal CONNECT, YES Place and others, to help mentor the start-ups and encourage their growth.
With all of this business activity last year, we are sure that 2016 will bring even more opportunity and will be an even busier year for us. The Economic Development Department and the City of Murrieta look forward to the excitement of growing Murrieta one business at a time!
