When it comes to running a business coming up with a business idea is just the first step in a much larger process. An even more important aspect of your overall business plan is having an equally great city to base your business in. After all the local economy is going to dictate just how well you can expect your business to do in the first, and critical, few years of operation. So it might interest you to know that Destin has been voted as one of the most "Recession Proof" cities in the United States by Forbes Magazine?
The simple fact is that the state of Florida has weathered the current economic storm very well, as has the city of Destin, and the accolade of being "Recession Proof" speaks to that very clearly. Where Destin is located on the Gulf of Mexico plays a key role in how well the local economy performs, as does the hundreds of millions of dollars that tourists bring to our city every single year. The fact that so many tourists visit our city each year means there's an increasing demand for service-based businesses throughout the city and surrounding areas.
In addition to the tourist trade Destin also has a diverse range of industries operating here including several major aerospace companies and a booming healthcare industry also. You rarely find aerospace industries setting up shop in any but the most stable of economic regions in the country. Of course the fact that Destin can offer you a vast, well educated and multi-lingual workforce is also going to be of benefit to pretty much any business we can think of.
So from a business perspective you would have a wonderful location, great infrastructure, an educated workforce and being situated in a city where growth is the rule rather than the exception. What more could you ask for?
