Here are a few things you need to consider when opening a business in Winter Graden ( Horizon West FL):

“Location”
Winter Graden is a large city, and the housing market is mainly happening around Winter Garden’s newest area called Horizon West. Although the downtown Winter Garden area is beautiful, a lot of the new homes and businesses being built are developing around Horizon West Winter Graden. Meaning the majority of people will be located around Horizon West and not in the downtown Winter Garden area. Look for “Hamlin Winter Garden”, this is the town center for Horizon West and will feature great retail space and restaurants.

“Type of Business”
Horizon West Winter Garden is a trendy town, and in popular cities, niche businesses thrive. We have worked with many GYMs, SPAs, and restaurants in the areas and have noticed a trend. Families love “one-off” restaurants in this area and places to spend time with their kids!
Medical practices, Dentist offices, and Pediatric offices are also becoming very popular in this area and are thriving. Fitness and health are the themes of this community, and businesses are bringing the goods.

“A Few Things to Know”
Winter Garden is part of Orange County, Florida. So you will need to work with Orange county on all your business dealings such as licensing and permits. Also, taxes are on the rise, so make sure you calculate and do your math well when opening a business in Winter Garden.
This town is mainly comprised of families, so whatever business you intend in opening will be best welcomed if it is family-friendly. Families are continually looking around for things to do with their kids in this area, and if your business serves a purpose to families, you will strike gold in Winter Garden. All the permits and zoning offices are located in downtown Orlando.
Winter Garden is a very diverse area and a cultural melting pot. Your business must fit well with different cultures and people. You will meet people from all parts of the world with different backgrounds. This diversity is what makes Winter Garden a particular place and a unique community in Central Florida.

“Technology for Your Business”
Please don’t go to the local gadget store and purchase your office equipment there. Although, there are many gadget stores in the Winter Garden area; by going te DYI method, you will likely put your business at risk. Talk to an experienced company such as Corporate Shields for all your technology needs. People love businesses with free WIFI and we can help you bring this nice feature to your customers.

“Protect Your Business”
After making the most significant investment of your life and spending countless hours planning, building, and making your business a reality, it makes no sense to skip on business protection. The same way you spend time and attention on protecting your business doors should be applied to your digital business life. Protecting your business’s most crucial asset, your customer data should be high in your priority list. Don’t buy off the shelf antivirus, routers, and wireless access points, give your business the protection it delivers and look at business class equipment such as Sophos firewalls or Sophos Endpoint to protect your computers. You can also look at cybersecurity companies such as Symantec or TrendMicro. Our company can suggest and even include this level of enterprise-level protection at small business prices, but please, don’t by off the shelf solutions, you will pay for it later.
