Ready to establish a presence in major cities like Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale in Florida?

Let’s first look at why you might need an 954 area code.

Where is area code 954?

Area code 954 is a telephone area code in the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) serving the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Florida. It covers cities such as Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pompano Beach, and Coral Springs, as well as many other smaller cities and towns in Broward County.

After its separation from the original 305 area code, area code 954 was established on September 11, 1995, and is aligned with the Eastern time zone. Check out area code 954 map here.

The 954 neighboring area codes are 561, 772, 305 and 786, and 239.

Why your business needs a Fort Lauderdale area code

If you want to target Fort Lauderdale, it makes sense to get a local number for that area code. Having a Fort Lauderdale area code for a business located in the city or serving its local market can be particularly beneficial for businesses operating in industries that are heavily reliant on local customers, such as tourism, hospitality, retail, and real estate.

Florida is a popular tourist destination with many businesses catering to tourists such as hotels, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Having a local 954 area code can help businesses attract customers searching for local establishments. It can also help your brand stand out from other businesses with out-of-state area codes, as customers are more likely to recognize and answer calls from local numbers.
