Businesses that have been established in Florida Road
Independently owned eateries and pubs
Florida Road has developed into the Berea’s premier entertainment and food centre with numerous casual restaurants and night-life outlets opening along the strip. Many businesses take advantage of Durban’s weather and embrace the urban pavement scene.
Alongside the entrepreneurial restaurants and pubs that have opened, Florida Road is also home to national and international franchise brands that meet patrons’ demands for a night on the town or a quick drink or bite to eat after work.
In line with a mixed-use environment, there are demands for auxiliary services including hair-dressing salons, petrol stations, estate agencies and quasi-government offices or NGOs, like the public transport initiative Go!Durban and the city’s tourism agency, Durban Tourism, or the Community Chest.
Florida Road is home to several hotels including The Benjamin, Quarters and Florida Park, as the city anchors a significant portion of its economic generation on tourism. Other tourism-based opportunities, like tour operators and B&B establishments, would not be out of place in this neighbourhood.
