Spotlighting 51 Locally Owned Businesses In West Broward

The Project

We know people prefer to buy local. In fact, national companies are now branding themselves to look and feel like local businesses. Our mission is to help small locally owned businesses in the West Broward community expand their reach and grow their online presence.

One of the biggest challenges for locally owned businesses is establishing a strong community network, so that potential customers can find and choose local. This challenge is intensified by the ability of nationally owned businesses to invest large sums of money into branding, advertising and online networking.

We believe in supporting and investing in our local community. That’s why we started the Fifty One In project. Over the next year, our goal is to spotlight 51 locally owned businesses in our West Broward community. This will bring targeted information about them to the web, where the majority of people turn today to find what they are looking for. We also will promote local events and “live local” ideas, so you can easily follow what’s happening in your neighborhood to get out & get to know your neighbors.

These spotlights are just the beginning. We aim to build a quality comprehensive network for our community, so our neighbors can choose to support each other. If you are a local business owner, please contact us for more information about receiving a free spotlight.

Legends Tavern & Grille


If you’re a fan of buffalo chicken, you must check out Legends Tavern & Grille.  This sports bar is a bit of a hidden gem in Sunrise, located in the Publix Shopping Center on the corner of N Nob Hill Road and W Oakland Park Blvd.


The owner, Jess Louis, is an active member of the local community, sponsoring car washes and fundraising events for local sports teams and high schools nearly every weekend.


Legends opened their doors for business just over a year and a half ago.  The food is always fresh and generously portioned.  My absolute favorite menu item is the gigantic buffalo chicken sandwich (the featured pic below shows only half of the sandwich), followed by the buffalo chicken chili, or even better, the nachos smothered in buffalo chicken chili!!  In all its forms, I love it!  If you’re not a fan of buffalo chicken, there’s sure to be something on their menu for you and your family.  They have a lower-priced lunch menu during the week and they give a discount to City of Sunrise employees.


The atmosphere is laid back and the staff is fun and friendly.  They’ll crank up the music if you yell out it’s your favorite song.  They feature LOTS of events throughout the week.    Check out trivia night on Wednesdays,  25 cent wings on Tuesdays, frequent live musical guests or just come watch your favorite team play on one of their many HDTVs.
