Michelle Beer the founder of Ferry Cake Consultancy, a marketing and business support agency set to open its new office at the Pelican, the former council offices in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire.
Michelle Beer said “My vision for the business is to be able to offer opportunities to young people in the area with training and work placements to develop digital marketing skills. It is important to me to support the local young people here in my hometown and therefore not choosing larger areas like Swansea or Carmarthen as the base to develop my marketing and business support business.
“I am excited to set up our new HQ in Kidwelly. I had initially thought about Ferryside but the Pelican got my final vote.”
Stuart Thomas who purchased the former council offices last year with a view to creating a hub for socially responsible enterprises said:
“We’re delighted Michelle Beer and Ferry Cake Consultancy have chosen the Pelican to base their exciting new business. The Pelican has potential for multiple uses including a mix of offices, exhibition, meeting and training spaces for private and third sector organisations, over time it is hoped to develop sections of the building as mini arcade style craft centre to support local jobs and boost the tourism base of the town.
“The Pelican is now attracting a growing community of socially responsible local businesses which will help with capacity building and support the economic regeneration of the local area. I wish Ferry Cake well with their new enterprise”.
