Heights Urban Core Chamber


Heights Urban Core Chamber (HUCC), formerly the Business Guild of Seminole Heights (BGoSH), is an organization committed to further enhancing the local businesses of the Heights, the urban core, in Tampa, Florida. Our Mission is to increase the viability of local Tampa businesses and encourage high-quality enterprise, by enhancing and cultivating the Historic Heights neighborhoods as a unique and enjoyable commercial environment.


Organized in 2005 by Sherry King and Suzanne Prieur as the Business Guild of Seminole Heights, the newly re-branded Heights Urban Core Chamber is a vibrant, driven organization that works to identify and facilitate the needs of the Heights businesses, Tampa’s urban core community. HUCC members and affiliates have a passion for the Heights neighborhoods: the charming bungalows, the mix of urban and neighborhood environments, the street art, and the unique and independently owned shops, restaurants, bars, and businesses. That passion extends into our main goal as an organization: by keeping the small-business economy thriving, we are ensuring our neighborhoods continue to grow and succeed. Because the Heights neighborhood is so unique, HUCC prides itself on being an innovative and open-minded chamber, trying new and creative ways to help our members and fulfill the expectations of our neighborhood’s residents.
For our organization and its members, the message is simple: we love to live here and we love to do business here!
