The Temple Terrace Business Spotlight Program is a business support initiative designed to provide local business owners and operators an opportunity to share a brief video story about their businesses and the goods and services they offer. Each video is approximately 3 to 5 minutes in length and features a new business each month.
Featured businesses are nominated by community partners such as the Temple Terrace Business Alliance and the Temple Terrace Uptown Chamber of Commerce. City staff will record, edit, and upload the videos to the city’s YouTube channel and promote the videos across various city communication platforms.
If you would like to recommend a business for nomination, please contact one of our community partners below:
To be featured, a business must meet the following required criteria:
Must hold a valid Business Tax Receipt certificate issued by the City of Temple Terrace,
Have at least one physical business location (i.e. office, storefront, restaurant, etc.) within the incorporated city limits of Temple Terrace or maintain a home-based business within the incorporated city limits of Temple Terrace,
Type of business must be suitable for a city-sponsored video designed for viewing by all ages and all audiences, and
Business owner/operator must be willing to participate in the video production process.
The nominating parties are also encouraged to consider the following optional criteria:
Going above and beyond in a manner that supports the local community,
Offering unique or specialized goods and/or services in high demand,
Celebrating milestones in business (i.e. 20 years in business, etc.), or
Other notable details that cause the business to “stand out” in the community.
This program is an element of the City's effort to support business development and economic growth throughout Temple Terrace. For this reason, at this time, nominating parties are encouraged to focus their nominations on businesses that operate in a for-profit structure.
