Why is Frederick County a great place to do business?

The quality of life in Frederick County makes it a great place to live and do business. The ability to live where I work and work where I live is what makes this area special.

What is a significant event in your company’s history?

Opening my practice on March 15, 1989, was the most significant day of my professional life. Becoming a part of the community and building my practice all started on that day. Without the support of many people along the way, I would not have been able to reach this point in my career or practice.

What advice would you give a young company?

Find work that you love. Watch it grow as you feed it and nurture it every single day. Before you know it, 31 years will have passed faster than it seems possible.

Frederick County is very fortunate to have an amazing business community, especially those that have been in business for over 20 years.  We understand that there are more than 100 legacy businesses in Frederick County, but unfortunately, we were not able to include all these businesses in the Top 50x2.  The businesses included were selected from responses submitted to a business survey.  OED staff verified the responses and then selected the businesses on a first come first serve basis.  If your business would like to be included in future opportunities, please email

Some photographs included in the publication were taken pre-COVID.  OED encourages everyone to follow precautionary guidelines set forth by the Frederick County Health Department.
