Business invited to relocate to Taupo
If you’ve been pondering a business expansion, relocation or simply a change of pace, then Taupo could be worth considering.
Taupo has a strong and growing economy with low unemployment and a thriving business sector. The region has an abundance of affordable commercial property available for lease or purchase, as well as significant tracts of undeveloped land ideal for those that require a purpose built facility.
One of the main perks of basing your business in Taupo are the affordable operating costs which are lower compared to the big cities – both rent and wages are lower and many other business expenses are the same or lower compared to the main centres around New Zealand.
Taupo also offers you and your family the lifestyle you have dreamed of. It has the big city amenities and features without the hassle and stress of big city living – and importantly, an ideal environment to raise a family, “It is a safe place, with a strong local community and sense of civic pride,” says Kylie Hawker-Green, from Enterprise Great Lake Taupo. “People who live here, love living here.
“We are committed to rolling out the red carpet for new businesses in Taupo.
“We want to prove to business owners who are considering a move here that Taupo is filled with great opportunities for business. So to prove it, we’re encouraging those considering a move to register for a Taupo Tiki Tour. We’ll host you in Taupo for a day, introduce you to property developers and land owners, discuss your requirements, answer any queries you have and connect you with the right people.”
For those who decide to make the move, the ‘Welcome Home to Taupo’ pack provides a $20,000+ package of benefits for those who are bringing their business to Taupo. The pack includes everything you need to get your business established such as stationery, signage, printing, power, engineering and planning advice, telephone and internet, marketing, advertising, memberships to local groups and even the mayor’s cellphone number.
A recent arrival, formerly from Auckland, says living in Taupo is like always being on holiday.
“In summer, by 5:30 I’ve finished work, grabbed the family, and we’re out on our boat enjoying a swim and a BBQ. Back in Auckland, we wouldn’t have even got home by then, let alone got the boat on the car.
“We want our local businesses to not just exist, but to be booming,” says Kylie. “We have so many strong businesses here that are succeeding at a local, national and international level and we think there are others out there who’d like to do the same.” To register for a Taupo Tiki-Tour, or find out more about bringing your business to Taupo, visit www. greatopportunities.co.nz.
