Since March, COVID-19 has caused serious disruption for
Treasure Coast small businesses and the regional workforce.
Even with all Treasure Coast businesses now open and operating,
including hospitality, the reality of a changed and challenging
marketplace still exists.
The primary purpose of Treasure Coast Business Magazine
is to provide the region with a go-to publication for all things
business across the Treasure Coast. Beginning with the spring
issue, the magazine dedicated substantial pages of content
that provided small businesses with COVID-19 operational
tips on topics including operations, marketing, cash management,
recovery and resiliency.
That same issue dedicated an entire section to the Paycheck
Protection Program, Economic Injury Disaster Loans
a plan to move beyond COVID-19.
