Gavin Cummings, whose wife is Fancy Something Nice owner Trishelle Cummings, said the bakery his wife runs out of their home is the best new business of 2012.

Douglas Peterson said Beef 'O' Brady's moving into the old Blockbuster and Advance Auto Parts moving into the old Hollywood Video "tightened up the empty spaces." He also said he liked the new owners and management at Terrace Sports.

I really like the Advance Auto parts in the old Hollywood video location. There's a few exceptional small businesses in town such as Florida flag and pennant, Checo's restaurant and others. The elephant in the room is, there's not much happening downtown to draw business or make people want to stop by except to patronise the old businesses that have been there since day one. I hate to be critical, but Temple Terrace is in a rut and I feel is very confused on what it wants to be. The original plan for downtown was in my opinion and many others way too grandiose and really didn't fit well with the surrounding area. Please stop wasting money building ornate structures around the bridge and landscaping until the downtown development is completed, if ever?

I love--LOVE--Cupcake Cache, but that is not Temple Terrace.
