Why Tampa Bay


People, stories, coffee. Why Tampa Bay hosts, Roberto Torres and Alex Sandkuhl, sit down for a cup of coffee at The Blind Tiger Cafe in SOHO with people who are making our city awesome and ultimately answering the question: Why Tampa Bay? Why live here, play here and do business here? Through the course of each conversation Roberto and Alex found incredible stories of not just success here in Tampa Bay, but how it was attained. The Why Tampa Bay team is eager to share these inspirational stories, offering advice to other people looking to build a life here in Tampa Bay. Presented by Chase.
