The next edition of the Long Beach Business Journal will include our first focus on historic companies and organizations in Long Beach. In addition to featuring a list of these entities, which we have been hard at work compiling, the edition will include stories from Long Beach’s oldest companies.


Long Beach is a city full of history, from the days of the Pike and movie studios to the growth of the largest port complex in the nation, from the oil boom to the buildup of the Navy and the aerospace industry in the Second World War.


Many of the businesses in Long Beach have been around for generations, and we want to hear the stories of their time here through the years. If you have a business, or know of one, that has been located in Long Beach for decades, e-mail with the following: the name of the company, when it opened, who founded it, the original business name, and contact information. Celebrate your Long Beach legacy with us.
