Largo’s skilled workforce, fortune 500 companies, such as Tech Data and Advanced Impact Technologies, and award-winning parks and leisure activities are all reasons to call Largo home. However, its 4,000-plus small businesses are truly the community’s backbone, which is why the City invites residents and visitors in celebrating Largo Small Business Month in November. From voting for favorite Largo businesses to supporting local eateries, there are several ways to show support throughout the month.
VOTE FOR THE BEST OF LARGO
Back for the seventh year, the City of Largo and Tampa Bay Newspapers are sponsoring the “Best of Largo” contest to honor business-owned establishments and local entrepreneurs. Residents can vote for their favorite Largo businesses from Thursday, October 29 through Thursday, November 19 online at BestofLargo.TBNweekly.com.
In addition to the annual contest, the City is teaming up with Largo Recreation to host a series of Restaurant Round-up events in Park Lot 1 at Largo Central Park on Sundays throughout November. From 12-4pm, patrons can drive up, order select items from attending local restaurants, and meals will be delivered directly to parked vehicles in designated spots. Cash and credit will be accepted during the event. Businesses that are interested in attending as a restaurant vendor may contact Largo Special Events at 727-587-6740, x5014 or SpecialEvents@largo.com for more information.
MORE WAYS TO SHOW SUPPORT
The community is invited to share their photos and videos at their favorite Largo restaurants and businesses on social media. Use the hashtag #LoveLargoFL, #LargoBusiness and #LoveLargoBiz and be sure to tag the City of Largo on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
