DeLand has become a hotspot for businesses big and small. It's home to large corporate companies such as Davita and Frontier, yet it is a great place for solopreneurs to find community to get their businesses up and running. Regardless of size, there is something about DeLand, especially the downtown area, that draws businesses in.
Recently, the Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency met to rank three plans to give new life to the old Volusia County Jail that sits on the block between W. New York Ave. and Georgia Ave. The project is expected to enhance the area near the Artisan Alley area, a popular area off Woodland Blvd.
The wait is finally over. Local fans can finally rejoice. Chipotle is open! The Mexican grill chain with a DeLand location at 2335 S.

Chipotle in DeLand is open 10:45 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. seven days a week.
The purchase of a commercial property by an individual (for investment purposes) or business (for either investment or business operation purposes) can be filled with the potential for missing key information that can be very costly to the buyer. Purchasers of commercial real estate are typically considered to be sophisticated parties, and whatever consumer protection laws may exist in a state for the protection of residential home purchasers seldom apply, if ever, to a commercial real estate purchaser. The adage of “buyer beware” particularly applies to commercial real estate purchases and warrants careful application of due diligence procedures and checklists.
Some of the commercial projects that have been ongoing in DeLand have finally been completed or are near completion, just in time for the holidays. We thought we would provide you with a commercial construction update, holiday edition.

Daytona Beach is looking to revitalize it's downtown area, and it looks like insurance giant Brown & Brown, Inc. plans to be the catalyst.

The new building will be home to 600 additional employees that Brown & Brown plans to hire, which will be an economic surge to East Volusia County.
The topic of cancer hits home with many of us, because most of us know a friend or family member that has been affected by the disease in some way. The DeLand community is very vocal about standing up for those who have been plagued by cancer, thanks to events like the MeStrong 5K. Local treatment facilities are abundant as well. Thankfully, DeLand is home to a new independent cancer treatment center.W. AKE MARY BLVD.
