Publisher's Note

Development center provides a helping hand with pandemic challenges

Dr. Edwin Massey

Since the spring issue of Treasure Coast Business magazine, many regional businesses have reopened and are “back to biz.” Although glimpses of normal operations exist, the reality is that the business community must continue to deal with an unprecedented, changing and challenging marketplace created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Just as the marketplace began to re-open, many hospitality operators had to cease operations to address a surge in coronavirus cases. Read more...

Treasure Coast merchants adjusting to business the new normal way

After closing their doors for nearly two months during Florida’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order, retailers are rolling out the red carpet with CDC safety precautions for returning customers.

Restaurants balance reopenings with ever changing COVID-19 guidelines

The coronavirus pandemic didn’t take away our love of food but it did challenge our access to the food we love.

As Florida relaxed its stay-at-home guidelines, we yearned for the luxury of once again dining at our favorite restaurants — a good thing. According to the National Restaurant Association, “The restaurant industry, more than any other industry in the nation, has suffered the most significant sales and job losses since the COVID-19 outbreak began.”

It’s been a roller coaster ride. Restaurants, bars and beaches were... Read more...

Local citrus, cattle industries holding own against pandemic

The two big agricultural industries on the Treasure Coast, citrus and cattle, have so far weathered the impact of COVID-19, even as cattle prices plunged in March and April and as growers and packers are on guard for the pandemic’s affect once the citrus season resumes in October, industry participants said.

Day-to-day life for citrus growers and cattle ranchers and their workers has not changed much since the virus began to... Read more...

Pandemic forces nonprofit organizations to find alternate ways to fund services

Nonprofit organizations typically rely on one major event to raise the bulk of funds needed to support their services for the upcoming year. And the month of March is the most popular time to hold those events. But March of 2020 will forever be remembered as the year the world shut down due to COVID-19. Businesses were closed, events were canceled and people were asked to stay at home to contain the spread of the virus.

As the state reopens, businesses implement new pandemic policies and apply for government loans to... Read more...

St. Lucie County launches Port of Fort Pierce master plan update

The central question facing St. Lucie County as it updates the Port of Fort Pierce master plan is how the port will handle future economic and social opportunities.

The port, which is one of Florida’s 14 deepwater seaports, was initially created as a maritime freight and logistics center to ship agricultural products and cargo from the Treasure Coast. It now functions as a hybrid of working waterfront elements and community infrastructure. It is unlike most traditional cargo- and cruise-dominant seaports in Florida. Read more...

Nonprofit fund provides loans and mentoring for Black business owners

Trey Alston, BBIF

Established in 1987, the Black Business Investment Fund of Florida is a nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution that has successfully developed, capitalized and trained minority and underbanked businesses statewide for 30 years.

A Black business and investment corporation, BBIF was created through the Florida Small and Minority Business Act in 1985. This act was a response to the reality that Black business owners were being overlooked by large, traditional lenders, making it nearly impossible for them to obtain financing for their businesses. Read more...

PTAC at IRSC helps regional business owner successfully navigate the government contracting maze

A Management Marine Services boat

In a typical week, you could find Management Marine Service helping the U.S. Coast Guard with nine or 10 training events at three locations. The small business may also be preparing a boat to logistically support a Department of Defense exercise or finishing up work for the Royal Canadian Air Force. And then, of course, there is general maintenance of its 12-boat fleet to do and paperwork, always paperwork.

There are loan options for small businesses but they can be expensive

Katherine Culhane, Associate Director for the Florida SBDC

I think it’s safe to say the Paycheck Protection Program wasn’t a good fit for every small business looking for capital. What’s more, the Small Business Administration loan is not the only source of financing options available. A savvy business owner can leverage the loan options that are available to maintain business operations, grow revenue and exit the current financial crises a little bruised and battered, but none the worse for wear. Read more...

Being resilient will help companies survive during economic challenges

Even if all you had to worry about were the quality of your company’s products or services and continued growth of its customer base, running a business would be challenging enough.

However, companies are also subject to economic and environmental forces beyond their control. A change in the economic cycle could disrupt cash flow, tighten access to credit, rattle customers and suppliers and even threaten the survival of your organization.

No one can precisely predict changes in the economy. As Treasure Coast businesses have experienced with the coronavirus outbreak, they can...Read more...

FPL ENHANCES EMISSIONS-FREE SYSTEMS TO MAKE FLORIDA WORLD LEADER IN SOLAR POWER

Known as the Sunshine State, a moniker that attracts many tourists and helps the state’s economy, Florida is now seeing ever-expanding utilization of this great natural resource. Florida Power & Light Company has been harnessing the sun’s rays to provide electric power for homes and institutions since it built the first solar energy center in DeSoto County, the largest of its kind in the United States, in 2009.

The first Treasure Coast operation, a hybrid natural gas-solar facility known as Martin Next Generation Solar Energy Center, has 190,000 mirrors spread over 500 acres. The 75-megawatt plant, the first hybrid of its kind in the world, began operation in December 2010 and is the only one of its kind that FPL operates.
