Floresville is a culturally diverse home to an ever-growing population wanting to escape some of the big city bustle to live in a more intimate and friendly small town. Wilson County’s rolling hills, mild winters, and abundant sunshine make a wonderful location to raise a family or retire. Located between San Antonio and the Eagle Ford Shale region, the Floresville economy is vibrant and employment opportunities are plentiful. Floresville’s low cost of living; minimal traffic congestion; clean air; and easy access to health care, shopping, and parks continue to attract residents looking to relocate to a historic suburban town.

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.
