Kirchanschöring earlier belonged to the prince-bishopric Salzburg. In 788, Kirchanschöring was first mentioned in a document as a possession of the archbishop Arno. In that time, it was called Anschering. This name probably goes back to the name Ansheri or Anskar, relating to a person who settled there. In the course of the centuries, the name changed into Anschering and later, after the construction of the church in the 14th century, Kirchanschöring.
The internationally known companies Meindl as well as Royalbeach have their headquarters in Kirchanschöring. Further main pillars are tourism, trade and agriculture.
