In Huddersfield, we’ve seen first hand how local businesses, like a popular comic book shop in Byram Arcade, have thrived with support from Business Kirklees. Their move to a new location was made smoother with our guidance, helping them connect directly with the right contacts and bypassing usual complexities. Their story is a great example of what focused and practical support can achieve.
Paul Thornton, Manager of Ka-pow! Comics says:
“We’re really pleased about the extra support from Kirklees Council for us small businesses. The Business Support Team were great in helping us move to Byram Arcade. It was helpful getting connected directly with the council and industry contacts, skipping the usual run-around with letting agents. We’re loving our new spot in Byram Arcade and can’t wait to welcome more visitors.”
Because of this success, Business Kirklees are excited to roll out this initiative across the area with two additional Area Based Account Managers in North and South Kirklees. Account Managers will focus on supporting businesses within the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.
Business Kirklees is dedicated to business support, working to ensure that every business, whether starting out or looking to expand, gets the help it needs. Our Area Based Business Support initiative is more than just a support system; Managers are here to support growth, committed to building a stronger, more connected business community.
