Trade and local enterprises


The local enterprises are a cornerstone of the development of the municipality of Kökar. The spirit of enterprise and entrepreneurship is blooming, and the number of registered businesses has gone up from 18 to 33 in the years 2007-2013.

Kökar has its own trade association. Its purpose is to promote entrepreneurship and cooperation between its members.

The private sector is dominated by tourism, shipping and farming, but there is also a brand new bakery. The municipality is a major employer with some 30 employees; most of them working with childcare, care for the elderly or at the school. If you have a business idea that you want to implement you can get a lot of help, both in terms of financial aid and advice.

If you need land or premises, the municipality can help you through land planning, both on private and municipal land. You are welcome to contact either the municipal manager Kurt Forsman or the trade association if you have questions regarding available land on Kökar.
