Jobs & Employment
Floresville is the county seat of Wilson County, a rapidly growing exurban county in the San Antonio-New Braunfels metropolitan area. Traditionally, industry in the area has historically centered around agricultural products such as peanuts, cattle, cotton, and small grain. But in recent years, the economy of Floresville has become increasingly service- and energy-oriented. Just north of the oil- and gas-rich Eagle Ford Shale region, Floresville is less than 30 minutes from regional offices of Fortune 500 energy companies Halliburton, Weatherford, and BJ Services. Downtown San Antonio is a short 35-minute commute to the north, with minimal traffic congestion.
