The Hispanic Business Council (HBC) of the Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce was established in 1996.

The Council was founded by Guillermo Hansen, Commissioner, Ken Shipley and Tom White. It started with 7 board members and now has approximately 30 board members and 120 members. Since its inception, the Council has provided the Hispanic community leadership, education, networking, and marketing opportunities.

The unparalleled networking events provide our members the opportunity to meet other business owners and get involved to maintain a competitive edge and receive valuable information and increase their profits.
