If you’re looking to expand your business in the US, there’s really no better place than setting up shop in Miami Beach. In addition to the lovely weather, where
the sun shines all year round, this place offers just the right balance of business and leisure to delight you as an entrepreneur and as a private individual.
Tourism is constant in this so-called Magic City. Whether you’re a professional looking to build your own private practice or party-lover who wants to put up a
bar near the beach, Miami is just perfect.
South Florida businessman Lee Rosen agrees. Miami Dade county is an excellent place both for new and expanding businesses. For one, Port Miami is the 11th biggest
cargo container port in the US and the largest cruise ship port in the world. That means a steady influx of tourists and easy access to supplies.
“You can set up any business in Miami and find that it’s the perfect environment for work and play,” notes Lee S. Rosen, the CEO and chairman of Healthy Bees LLC.
“Aside from being one of the richest US cities, it is where finance, culture, entertainment, fashion, commerce and everything flourishes. If you play your cards
right, you simply cannot go wrong setting up a business in Miami, FL.”
Rosen’s observations are backed by a CNN survey that lists Miami as of the best cities to launch a startup in the US. Even with the city’s already busy and
bustling business district, there is plenty of room for up-and-coming enterprises to build and grow. Chalk that up to the weather, but what’s particularly
interesting is the Florida’s small-business-friendly tax system.
Being a choice destination for many tourists from other US states and around the world, it is not surprising that many businesses in the city are related to
tourism. These include resorts, restaurants, nightclubs, spas, water sport rentals, hotels and souvenir shops. But, there’s also lots of room for professional
services like clinics, lawyers, advertising agencies, schools and more. Just make sure that you read up on the local regulations first before setting up.
“If you’re looking to open a brick and mortar location, don’t forget about the Florida Building Code,” advises Lee Rosen. “Repurposing an existing structure is
subject to specific occupancy rules. They’re not that difficult to follow, but it’s best to consult with the Community Development Department first to be sure
you’re on the right track. Once you’re done with that, things should be smooth sailing.”
