Hialeah Chamber history

The Hialeah Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1979 by a small group of young Cuban American entrepreneurs eager in response to promote and assist in minority owned small business development, specifically Hispanic owned businesses in the City of Hialeah, Hialeah Gardens and throughout Miami-Dade County.

These handfuls of eager and energetic business entrepreneurs provided the vision, platform, and structure of what is today known as the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce & Industries.

Chairman of the Board Mandy Llanes and Board the of Directors together with Chamber President Daniel Hernandez work together to provide the passion, commitment, and dedication to build the Chamber and to provide opportunities and resources to all businesses and individuals, with a focus on the community and its culture.

In 39 years, the Chamber has seen tremendous growth and changes. It has been committed to developing the goals of the organization geared towards the start-up, retaining, and expanding of local based small minority businesses throughout the county. Over the last few decades the number of Hispanic owned businesses has increased significantly and with Hispanics as the largest minority group in the State of Florida, this phenomenal growth signifies a more diverse marketplace. The Hialeah Chamber of Commerce & Industries and its members are a dynamic link to future business relationships with ethnically diverse consumer, workforce, and expanding global economy.
