Part of the Community
The City of Zephyrhills has created incentives for continued and varied growth in the medical and light industrial businesses that are helping Zephyrhills to become an economically diverse community. Its proximity to the larger population center of Greater Tampa allows for an easy commute, yet provides natural relaxation and opportunities for recreation and safe living that today’s family craves. The area’s businesses and services are responding to changes and the demands of today, such as the transition of a family owned store and retail produce market to one accommodating a worldwide market.
The world’s largest online skydiving gear store in America is an example of the specialty businesses that make their home in the area. Housing development, assisted living facilities and many support services highlight the positive business climate in Zephyrhills.
A very active Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Zephyrhills, Inc. have successfully assisted in redeveloping the heart of the downtown with street and sidewalk improvements, landscaping, lighting, utility improvements and shopper-friendly benches.
Government and privately sponsored incentive programs have been introduced to continue the revitalization of the downtown and to attract new businesses and customers to existing businesses. These programs include Tax Increment Financing, loans available at prime rate and Main Street Program grants. The City has established a reputation and tradition for working with businesses and the public and providing quick responses to proposed projects.
The Chamber of Commerce offers it’s “Online Office” at www.zephyrhillschamber.org. Here, you can find our local business directory, community links and information on all aspects of Zephyrhills.
