Recent and Upcoming Events
Our Mission
Branch Avenue in Bloom is a retail revitalization program aiming to resurge the economic activity of the Branch Avenue commercial corridor in Temple Hills, MD. As a program BAIB is modelled after the National Historic Trust's Main Street Four-Point Approach: Organization, Promotion, Design and Sustainability. It is through these four areas that BAIB strives to accomplish transit oriented development for the surrounding areas near the Naylor Road Metro Station (Branch Avenue and St. Barnabas Road).
How we got started
Branch Avenue in Bloom is a program of the Maryland Small Business Development Center (MSBDC). BAIB was created in 2010 by Retail Revitalization Coordinator Jennifer Funn. Through a partnership with Sam's Car Wash, a long time retailer in the Branch Avenue corridor, BAIB was able to acquire its official office site on 3411 Branch Avenue. BAIB's primary founder is Maryland National-Capitol Park and Planning Commission.
