Florida small business owners are confident about the next six months — the most confident they've been since 2009. A survey released by PNC Thursday found that 61 percent are optimistic that there will be an upcoming increase in their sales, while 94 percent felt positive about how their company would fare over the coming six months.

"The overall findings from our biannual survey confirm that the fundamentals are solid for the U.S. economy," Mekael Teshome, PNC economist, said in a statement.
