Business and Employer Testimonials
Lorita Cornish, owner of Lorita’s Bakehouse and Decanter Spirit both situated on Bromsgrove High Street:
“I opened my first business in the High Street over two years ago and my second at the end of last year (2016).
“I can really see a bright future for Bromsgrove, from the customers I talk to and feedback from my fellow traders.
“It is a great place for independent traders and chains alike – why else would I open a second shop!”
“We love being part of what’s becoming a Better Bromsgrove. Since February 2016 we’ve been the proud market operator of the three day market on the High Street which plays an important role in attracting new shoppers into the town centre. Being part of Bromsgrove is great, we love working with the traders and the local community in delivering the thriving markets and adhoc events throughout the year.
“Because there is such a great vibe around the town centre, this year we will deliver Bromsgrove’s first ever food festival in June.
“We’re committed to bringing successful and growing markets and events into the town for people of all ages.“
“I love having a business in Bromsgrove, the people are friendly and great to work with.
“There is a real positive vibe in the town centre, with all the development work that is taking place and talk of big name companies coming to the town.
“The re-paved high street looks great and is a real source of pride for me and the people of Bromsgrove. The future is looking good for us.”
Businesses want to be in Bromsgrove initially for its excellent communications, with both the M42 and M5 providing access to the national motorway network, and its proximity to Birmingham is also proving to be a draw.
As a dedicated and specialist Bromsgrove and Worcestershire agent, we work closely with the two local authorities to provide key information, such as employment figures, skills levels, available grant aid, and areas where key staff can live, which, in addition to a comprehensive knowledge of property which is available both on- and off-market, is vital for any business looking to re-locate to the town.
With this framework of local support in place, strong prices are not deterring the purchasers of new industrial units. Indeed, Bromsgrove is fortunate in having developers who are continuing to supply new speculative industrial units at Saxon Business Park and Bromsgrove Technology Park, and the town still has sufficient second hand stock, both freehold and leasehold, to cope with demand for a while yet, concludes Mr Dillon.
