MBID Reauthorization Survey

The Mayfair Business Improvement District (MBID) is a two (2) mile stretch on Frankford Avenue, from Harbison to Sheffield Avenues, as well as a short block in each direction on Cottman Avenue.  It has been the birthplace of several local iconic institutions including, but not limited to, Chickie’s and Pete’s, Philly Pretzel Factory, Giggles Gifts, Stein Your Florist, and the Mayfair Diner.  In addition, it has spawned new, unique, thriving gems, such as Factory Donuts, the Grey Lodge, the House of Thai, Emma’s Italian Cuisine, Art History 101, and Frank’s Gourmet Burgers and Steaks.  We have accomplished so much, and this year we were nominated for “Non-Profit of the Year” for the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Excellence Awards as well as were awarded the honor of “Business of the Year” by our Police District Service Area (PDAC).

 

In 2021 MBID is up for reauthorization with City Council. As part of our reauthorization bid, we are looking to gauge businesses and residents' feedback on MBID activities as we move forward.
