Welcome to our business community.

Martin Luther King Jr. Way South, or as locals call it, “MLK,” runs through the heart of the Rainier Valley, one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the country. Traveling down the 4-mile MLK corridor is like taking a trip around the world without ever leaving Seattle.

With more than 90 languages spoken here, this community is home to many immigrants and new Americans from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America. The high concentration of small, locally owned and operated businesses and service providers that thrive along MLK reflects the community’s rich cultural diversity and history.

With the new light rail running through the MLK corridor between downtown and SeaTac International Airport, this international world is easy to get to and no passport is needed.
