6 Quick Reasons Tampa Is A Great City For New Businesses

Building a business is full of big decisions, and it’s important to feel confident in every choice you make along the way – especially when it comes to your business location.

From a healthy local economy to the unbeatable climate, here are 6 reasons Tampa is a great city for new businesses!

1. Tampa’s economy is thriving

Home to several large companies including Publix and Raymond James Financial along with a number of health care centers and retailers, Tampa has been a wonderful place for businesses to call home. Tampa boasts a redeveloped downtown area and the 7th largest port in the US.

2. Startups are energizing and inspiring the area

Fresh ideas and entrepreneurial energy are found all over Tampa as the city builds a support system for entrepreneurs. The city’s accelerators and business incubators cater to startup culture and have the city poised for growth and momentum.

3. City officials are looking for growth

With a renewed energy around developing the neighborhoods in and around downtown Tampa, officials are keen to bring new talent and opportunities to the area, and often offer incentives to do so.

4. City life with a relatively low cost of living

Compared to other metropolitan areas, Tampa’s cost of living is affordable – and you won’t sacrifice the cultural benefits and accessibility that come with living in a city.

5. There’s no better city for families

Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Lowry Park Zoo, and of course the many nearby beaches are a year-round playground for families, so feel good about planting your business and your family roots here.

6. You can’t beat the sun and sand!

Warm, sunny and never too hot, Tampa’s average highs fall between 70 and 90 degrees year-round. You simply can’t beat a bright sunny day near the warm ocean breeze!


Tampa recognizes that business is the key to a successful community. City officials are doing what they can to encourage new businesses to start and stay in the area. Many businesses have had success in Tampa and they continue to call the area home.
