THE FIRST STEP IN GROWING YOUR BUSINESS
Business Concierge is a complimentary service provided by the Town’s Economic Development, Planning, Building and Engineering Divisions. The Danville Business Concierge provides one-on-one consultation with new and existing businesses.
PLANNING YOUR BUSINESS
Our knowledgeable staff provides assistance to businesses early in the planning process to minimize up front expenditures. The Business Concierge’s goal is to make opening a business in Danville a pleasant experience by developing a simple roadmap for business owners.
BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS
Concierge staff identify requirements specific to the unique needs of each business. The roadmap developed for businesses will identify applicable codes to the specific type of improvement being made and only require information on plans that pertain to the scope of work. You will also be provided with insight on how to meet the requirements of other regulatory agencies such as the County Health Department, Fire District, Sanitary District, and others.
MARKETING, RETAIL INCENTIVES AND MORE
The Business Concierge Service is not only a clearinghouse for guiding your way through the permitting process at the Town. Our resourceful staff will steer you towards Town-supported programs that promote business vitality. Such programs include personalized listings on the Town’s business web site, ShopDanvilleFirst.com, retail marketing grants, cooperative advertising opportunities, retail façade improvement assistance, business workshops and other opportunities.
