A Taste of Brandon, Florida

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT BRANDON?

  1. Brandon is a census-designated place (CDP) in Hillsborough County, Florida, in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a total population of 103,483.

  2. In 1959, the Brandon Chamber of Commerce was formed to help promote business and growth. By the early 1960s, Brandon's population was 8,000, and it was estimated that one new family moved into town every day. Brandon began spreading out into the bordering communities of Limona, Seffner, and Valrico; Hopewell Road became four lanes wide and was designated State Road 60. Soon, the town's first shopping center, Brandon Center, was built, and Brooker Elementary School and the Brandon Swim and Tennis Club both opened in 1965. In the next few years, Kingswood Elementary School, the Brandon Public Library, and many housing developments, shopping centers, and golf courses further fueled or reflected the influx of new residences and businesses.

  3. By the 1970s, growth was causing traffic congestion, as approximately 430 commercial and service businesses, 3 malls and a population of 40,000 were all contained with-in a six-mile radius. In the mid 1970s, Hillsborough Community College moved to Brandon by holding classes at public schools. More indications of the increasing population were the building of Brandon Community Hospital and the Brandon Cultural Center (now the Center Place Fine Arts and Civic Association).

  4. Brandon took off rapidly during the 1980s. Development of the southern area of Brandon brought thousands of new residents. On September 27, 1986, I-75 began to bring traffic through the Brandon area, dramatically changing the community and helping its population reach approximately 100,000 with over 2,500 business by 1988.

  5. Brandon, like the Tampa Bay area, has a warm climate. Unlike Tampa and Pinellas County, Brandon will typically have a few nights below freezing each year. The summers are long and hot, and average 85 degrees; winters are cold and dry, averaging 62 degrees. Brandon, like the rest of the Tampa Bay area, receives abundant rainfall, as it receives 44 inches of rain annually. Brandon's winters sometimes have low temperatures in the 30s for more than 4 days while Tampa can have low temperatures in the 40s and 50s in that same period of time. The winter temperatures in Brandon are known to be in the low 20s at least 2 times a year, but the high temperatures can stay in the 50s and 60s for over a month. Snow is very rare.
