Legacy Business Program

The Downtown Delray Beach Legacy Business Program is created to recognize, honor and promote the legacy businesses which attribute to the authenticity, history, culture and fabric of the downtown. These independent, locally-owned neighborhood commercial establishments – including retailers, restaurants, bars, manufacturers, service providers and more – are the places that give the city its character. They are the bedrock of our communities and draw visitors and new residents from around the world. Preserving our longstanding businesses is critical to maintaining that which makes downtown and all of Delray Beach a special place.
