Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) Program

Pizza ShopWelcome to Trenton’s Urban Enterprise Zone, a 3.06 square-mile, commercial and industrial section of the Capital City targeted for economic development! We are very proud to participate in New Jersey’s nationally acclaimed UEZ program, which provides Trenton businesses, residents and consumers financial incentives that are helping drive capital improvements, business expansion and employment in the city.

The New Jersey Legislature created the Urban Enterprise Zone Program in 1983 to help stimulate new economic activity and reduce unemployment within the boundaries of each zone. Trenton was awarded its UEZ designation in 1985. Since that time, the program has successfully served over 800 businesses that have invested millions of dollars in the construction and rehabilitation of new office, commercial and retail space, sports complexes, and other improvements to the city’s landscape.

Food Bazaar goes to great lengths to provide the Trenton community with individual attention for its cuisine. The firm makes connections throughout the world in order to provide the residents with the back home flavors they love. The store provides everyday staples and hard to find imported goods familiar to shoppers from others countries. The 3.5% sales tax on goods provides an added incentive for local customers to visit the store. - John Ahn, Store Manager, Food Bazaar (Bogopa Trenton)
