DIA Targeted Food & Beverage Program Surveys
The Downtown Investment Authority (DIA) is currently in the process of revamping its Retail Enhancement Program to include new incentives for food and beverage establishments interested in locating Downtown.
To obtain the valuable data needed to create the new incentives, the DIA has created a survey for Downtown residents and employees. This survey allows residents and employees to share their shopping behaviors with the DIA and describe the types of businesses they might support if they were available in Downtown Jacksonville. Their participation will be the cornerstone of a marketing plan designed to help attract new businesses to Downtown Jacksonville.
For questions and additional information regarding the new program, please contact Ina Mezini, DIA Marketing and Communications Specialist at 904-255-5693 or email@example.com.
