285 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE MAY 2019 Cayce, South Carolina Time for life T he City of Cayce (pronounced Kaycee), South Carolina is a charming riverside community in Lexington and Richland counties. As part of the Columbia, South Carolina Metropolitan Statistical Area, and all the urban benefits that proximity entails, Cayce’s population of approximately 14,000 also reaps the rewards of small-town ambience and a burgeoning artistic and entrepreneurial hub. Accessibility is a breeze via the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, Interstate 26, and Interstate 77, while the new 70,000-sq.-ft. Lexington Medical Center facility is a gem of state-of-the-art healthcare. Combine those with a visionary local government that truly empowers its citizens to excel and, as the tagline professes, in Cayce it really is “Time for life.” “We’re making smart investments,” says Cayce City Manager, Tracy Hegler. “We’re putting together great policy, but it’s very thoughtful and strategically done. Every decision we make is wrapped around quality of life. We want to be a great place to work, live, play and do business but we are also a small city outside the state capital, and we don’t want to grow haphazardly. We want to maintain that small town charm while growing wisely.”
