About

The Business Resource Center is a collaboration of the Killeen Workforce Center, Central Texas College, and the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce. 

The BRC has been providing high-quality services for over 17 years, which includes, individual counseling, administrative assistance and business support to potential or existing small business owners, as well as free Notary services.  As a non-membership, non-profit program, The BRC was created to provide services to all individuals requesting assistance in the central Texas region. We at the BRC understand that little cost can add up, so we are here to assist with some of the little services that can build to big cost such as: making copies, flyers and other computer services.  The BRC creates relationships with various businesses, organizations, and government entities for support and recognition of our programs and activities.  The BRC also establishes projects that can be co-sponsored with other resources to better serve the small business community.

We assist with building the business community where we live and work, by providing entrepreneur learning programs and resources to help grow our business community. We offer workshops on Fort Hood and off for those interested in knowing more when starting a new business or growing an existing business. Follow up on Facebook and Twitter for community events and workshops.
