  • The DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce’s began its Business Retention and Expansion program in 2011. The program’s mission is to cultivate local businesses by identifying operational challenges, assist with company expansion plans, and address workforce training issues in DeLand. This is accomplished phone interviews, on-site visits and data collection, as well as setting up direct follow up meetings with our regional partners with the City of DeLand, Volusia County Economic Development, Career Source, the Volusia Manufacturing Association and Team Volusia. To date the program has compiled company information for over 400+ companies in the city limits. One of the program’s successes was identifying a recent expansion of Frontier Communication in its IT Department and the subsequent hiring of 100+ new employees.
