Warrensburg has been a lucrative discovery for those who have taken a closer look this location wich abounds with a much larger market than can be measured by standard population numbers. In fact, some recentl y established franchisees tell us that their Warrensburg locations consistently out perform their similar franchises across the state.
The “hidden” population of Warrensburg comes from several sources. The University of Central Missouri has over 13,000 students and Whiteman Air Force Base is the home of approximately 12,000 military personnel and family members. This “hidden” population changes the traditional statistics by increasing the 2010 estimated population to over 50,000 for 80 percent of the year.
Most retailers and restaurants have already proven Warrensburg to be a highly successful location for their businesses. Major brands such as Aaron’s, Applebee’s, Office Depot, Walmart, Rib Crib, and Lowe’s, to name a few, have all discovered that the Warrensburg market exceeded their expectations. According to ESRI, the local demand over the current supply for major retail categories illustrates the cost of opportunity lost in the Warrensburg market.
