With such titles as "The World's Most Famous Beach" and “The World Center of Racing”, it is easy to see why Daytona Beach has long been a favorite destination among tourists as well as a prime location for business. NASCAR, International Speedway Corporation, the U.S. Tennis Association (USTA), and the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), have all made their corporate headquarters here.
With its central location, pleasant year-round climate, highly skilled workforce, and low cost of living, Daytona Beach has been the top choice for a variety of businesses, including manufacturing, automotive, high-tech, insurance, medical specialties, land development, and military supplies.
The nation’s top aeronautical university, Embry-Riddle, is located here, as well as top ranked University of Central Florida, Bethune-Cookman, and several other higher education institutions. A new 8,000 square foot business incubator in conjunction with UCF has just opened and is already attracting new companies in the fields of science and engineering.
Daytona Beach offers easy access to major highways I-4 and I-95, as well as an international airport located within a foreign trade zone. With five proposed Community Revitalization Areas, three designated Brownfield Areas, and a new Enterprise Zone, Daytona Beach is poised for targeted growth and development.
