Boca Raton Ranks High in Location of Large Firms
A recent issue of Florida Trend lists the 150 biggest public companies in Florida based on revenue. (To qualify, a company must be headquartered in Florida, have its stock publicly traded on a major exchange and file regular financial reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.) A significant number of these companies were located in Boca Raton. In fact, Boca Raton was tied with Miami as the 3rd largest concentration of the 150 largest public companies in Florida. Given the population of the cities with a higher concentration of company headquarters, the fact that Boca Raton ranks so highly is significant, and a reflection of the attributes of the City and quality of the City operations.
