Currently undergoing a massive renovation and redevelopment project to revitalize its beachfront and historic downtown, Pompano Beach is a city on the rise, or “comeback”, in Broward County, Florida. The city is named after the Florida pompano (Trachinotus carolinus), a fish that is commonly found off the Atlantic coast.
Recently, an effort to rejuvenate rundown areas near the Pompano Beach’s beach has gained immense momentum and has stimulated a multibillion-dollar building boom.
Pompano Beach’s local business community include residents such as Associated Grocers of Florida and PetMeds. With such a competitive business market, a lot of businesses and brands rely on Miami marketing efforts, focused on internet marketing campaigns and stategies, to help them gain a competitive edge in the market which can often times lead to increased visibility.
