The Bullard Economic Development Corporation (BEDCO) is a nonprofit 4B corporation, authorized by Section 4B of Article 5190.6 of the Texas Revised Civil Statutes Annotated, and governed by a Board of Directors of local business owners and residents. BEDCO utilizes 1/2 of one percent of local sales tax to support economic growth and development.
BEDCO is a growing catalyst for economic development welcoming new projects, businesses and job creation. It exists to promote all areas of Bullard's economy, from industrial, service and retail, to heritage tourism.

It is our mission to foster growth that complements our small city. Bullard has a small-town atmosphere, while still fostering progress and making preparations for the future. A partnership between BEDCO and outstanding business and local government leaders provide strong leadership.
