Largest Businesses In Miami


Largest Businesses In Miami
Many people (rightly) consider Miami a tourist hotspot and a great place to party. However, did you know there’s big business lurking in our city as well? If you’ve driven down the Dolphin Expressway, you’re probably aware that Miami is home to one of the nation’s largest fast food chains, Burger King. You also probably wouldn’t be surprised to find out that many of the world’s largest cruise lines have their U.S. offices in our fair city.

However, there’s a lot more than hamburgers and tourism in our city. I’ve compiled a listing of the 10 largest businesses in Miami. The criteria I used to rank these businesses is their market capitalization (the total value of all outstanding shares of stock). Therefore, you’ll only find publicly traded corporations on the list and you’ll only find those businesses that have their corporate headquarters in Miami. Here are the top 10:

  1. Lennar Corporation
  2. Carnival Corporation
  3. World Fuel Services
  4. Ryder Corporation
  5. Royal Caribbean Cruises
  6. Southern Wine and Spirits
  7. Brightstar
  8. Watsco
  9. IVAX Corporation
  10. Norwegian Cruise Lines
Surprised by anyone that appears on this list? The wide range of industries represented here – from travel to pharmaceuticals to construction – certain attests to the diversity of Miami’s business community!
