On this week’s episode of To a Certain Degree, we get to the root of Orlando superfan Andi Perez. Holy guacamole, does she love this city. That infatuation led her down quite a few paths, ultimately bringing her to Yelp as the local Senior Community Manager. How’d she get here? We’ll redo the search in this area and find out!
Here are some of the businesses and initiatives we discussed:
- Orlando Soup (not updated yet, but it will be shortly)
- 12 Degrees West
- Yelp on Instagram
- Downtown CREDO
