The Tweed portal open for business
The Tweed is the natural choice for business and a great place to invest in your future. That was the message at the launch of the Tweed Business Investment Guide and Business Portal held at Kingscliff last Tuesday.
Up to 100 representatives from local businesses came along to celebrate NSW Small Business Month and hear from some of the Tweedõs most successful business owners, such as Husk Distillers, Watersports Guru, The Beach People, Quatro Design and Murwillumbah Farmers Market, who took part in a lively Q&A panel and spoke with passion about their love for the Tweed.
Tim Jack-adams, Watersports Guru: Òthe Tweed has everything you could possibly want to run a successful business in one destination and I now have three businesses in the Tweed. Each one uses the iconic natural assets and aims to reconnect people through nature and the environment.ó
Victoria Henderson, The Beach People: ÒWE manufacture all over the world, have offices in three locations and work across multiple currencies and teams and we are able to do all that from the Tweed.ó
Sue Beckinsale, Murwillumbah Farmers Market: Òpeople in the Tweed are interested in the food they eat and there is a strong demand for beautifully grown organic food.ó
Chris North, Quatro Design: Òwhen we first started our business here we were a little apprehensive we were not going to find the suppliers and trades that we needed. We actually found the complete opposite. The local community has a really impressive skill set and the quality of service we get from surrounding businesses far exceeded my expectations.ó
Edwina Messenger, Husk Distillers: Òthe Northern Rivers region is becoming known for the quality of its producers, so being here works for us and our business.ó
Council General Manager Troy Green said the event was a great opportunity for local business representatives to mingle and celebrate what made them choose the Tweed to invest in.
Òthere are so many reasons to invest in and grow your business in the Tweed, apart from the obvious lifestyle benefits and natural beauty of the varied landscapes,ó Mr Green said.
Òthe Tweed has a diverse and productive economy Ð with health services, construction, retail, education and tourism among the most significant sectors Ð and contributes almost $2.5 billion to Australiaõs economy annually.ó
