With 18 employees, the Sunshine Peanut Company is the smallest Jacksonville business on this list. However, Sunshine deserves a little exposure because it's plant, just west of Downtown Jacksonville, is the only peanut-butter maker in Florida. Currently, the company produces peanut butter for the Florida Department of Corrections prison system.
