What is Felipe’s Backyard and why we started it.

Felipe’s Backyard started in 2020 with Felipe doing videos with local business owners to highlight them during a slow pandemic season and to advise customers on how businesses were dealing with COVID restrictions. The goal was simple, highlight our local SWFL businesses.

A few months later, Chris brought to Felipe the idea of building a website that would allow them to continue supporting all SWFL businesses through a one stop portal that included local attractions, local businesses, jobs, events, Felipe’s business reviews and more!  It was their way of giving back to the community they have chosen to live and love with their family.

In order to help as many people as possible, they agreed that the site would be 100% FREE both for local businesses and users,  and fast forwarding two years; today the site contains hundreds of local SWFL businesses, jobs, events, reviews and more!

Thank you all for your support thus far in making our community a more connected community and if you got ideas on how we can improve, we love to hear them and we  hope you enjoy the site, leave your own reviews, share with others and use it as a tool to find the goods or services you need and to support local businesses.
