Palm Coast Small Business Assistance Center Grand Opening

Palm Coast Small Business Assistance Staff

City of Palm Coast established a Business Assistance Center, soft launched in May 2011, celebrated its grand opening today with many of the Palm Coast and Flagler County government officials, economic development folks, and business leaders present.

The new Business Assistance Center is affiliated with the University of Central Florida Small Business Development Center (SBDC) network, and it will operate as a UCF SBDC sub-center, under the umbrella of City of Palm Coast, and will be managed by a Palm Coast resident, a retired executive and entrepreneur, Joe Roy.

The new space for Palm Coast Business Assistance Center does not resemble the typical government office you may have gotten used to. It's presented as a professional space with soft-colors, where the staff will meet you with smiling faces and a helpful attitude towards the business owners.

The physical location is at the City of Palm Coast offices, at Suite 105 located in City Marketplace (previously referred to as City Walk). It houses the offices of the previous Business License department staff, the Palm Coast Economic Development Team-leader Beau Falgout's office, as well the new SBDC area manager Joe Roy's office.

In today's short ceremony Palm Coast mayor Jon Netts said:

" We're going to solve our problems ourselves. We're going to do it ourselves. We're going to work hard. We understand local businesses, entrepreneurial startup businesses, and businesses that can grow to so called second stage businesses...that's our future. That's what this is all about!"

Here's the full contacts of the new Business Assistance Center if you have any questions, have a business need or dilemma, or would like to extend a warm welcome to Joe Roy:
