New businesses checking in to Blackpool offices

Blackpool Council’s EC2 office services are proving to be a hit with growing businesses across the Fylde Coast.

Fledgling firms including soft toy suppliers, accountants, training providers and social media experts have been snapping up the services provided by the council’s business department.

In total, that means 39 of the 45 fully-serviced, state-of-the-art offices available are now in use across the two sites, with ongoing negotiations meaning even more are in the pipeline.

Both buildings feature a range of high quality and affordable facilities to compliment the serviced offices, including reception services, informal meeting areas, meeting rooms, hot desking and virtual office services.

EC2 customers can also take advantage of the in-house business support services provide by Blackpool Council with advice and support from the Business Growth team and Get Started – the business start-up service.

Cllr Mark Smith, cabinet member for business and economic development, said: “It’s fantastic news that more businesses are moving into the offices at the Enterprise Centre and FYCreatives, which both give small companies the right environment to grow and expand.

“Blackpool’s business community can have a unique competitive advantage using these fantastic EC2 services. The resort prides itself on helping businesses to start, grow and reach their potential. ‘”EC2 provides great value for money for businesses and from the feedback we have received we are confident we can help even more.’’
