Ponca City by the Numbers (community, retail, business and demographic information)


For those seeking balance in their professional and personal lives, Ponca City offers the security and advantages of a small town with the convenience and services of a much larger area.  The City’s economic opportunities, micropolitan amenities and strategic location have helped make Ponca City one of the top 100 American communities, according to Relocate America.


The community is located in the center of the Oklahoma Gateway economic region of north central Oklahoma, providing easy access to three major metropolitan areas in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Wichita.  Ponca City offers a premier location for energy, manufacturing, research and corporate facilities.  Our local business community has long recognized the ease of conducting commerce in Ponca City based upon our user friendly government, excellent location and transportation amenities.


With its unique flavor of classic Americana, Ponca City has become a magnet for small and middle size companies.  Many of these firms are family-owned, including America’s 2004 SBA Family-Owned Business of the Year, while others offer a talented and motivated workforce the opportunity to excel.   Indeed, the strong partnership between businesses and the community creates an exceptional environment for a desirable professional and personal lifestyle.
