Erin Meagher

Founder of Beneficial Blends

Erin Meagher has called Tampa Bay home since her teens, and it became home for her rapidly growing business, Beneficial Blends, a company that produces organic oils. Beneficial Blends has made the Inc. 5000 list for the past three consecutive years, and is one of the top 10 fastest growing companies in the region. They’ve experienced more than 100% growth over the past 3-4 years and show no sign of slowing down.

Meagher credits Tampa Bay as leading to part of the Beneficial Blends remarkable success. As a port city, they have easy access to their imported products and ingredients, and her close proximity to the airport allows her to fly to trade shows and sales meeting with ease. It’s also a business and tax-friendly state with a dedicated workforce. But it’s not just the business perks that keep her here—Meagher enjoys the culture and lifestyle balance that Tampa Bay offers.

“Great restaurants, concerts, music, all of those things that we have… we really are lucky here in Tampa Bay.”
