Ward for Entrepreneur, “the desire to reach new markets” is one of five key reasons companies make the decision to move (in addition to workforce considerations, infrastructure upgrades, lower costs and quality of life). The Greater Daytona Region is defined by its unique market potential, its population comprising everyone from retirees to young professionals just moving to the area.
