Miami Beach is Keeping the Small Business Spirit Alive
In collaboration with Culture Crusaders the City of Miami Beach Economic Development department has constructed a survey to disseminate to businesses to collect current operating information.
This information will be used to learn more about your business and your current operations so we can include it in an editorial write-up/directory that will be published on www.culturecrusaders.com and disseminated digitally throughout Miami. We'd love to share updates on how consumers can still support your business during this difficult time.
Check out our directory of businesses in Miami Beach that are participating in this Campaign, here
