Local Better Business Bureau Has Moved!!

During the recent COVID-19 crisis, many businesses temporarily closed as a safety precaution for their employees and customers. The local Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest (BBB) in Lake Havasu City followed suit and is now on a path of reopening.

While uncertainty brought hardships to many, it also provided to be an opportunity for growth and new perspectives. BBB is excited to join the creative entrepreneurs in the F106 Co-Working Space in Lake Havasu City to further support our local small businesses.

BBB Regional Director Kryistyna Hook

Our economy is beginning to bustle with life again, so providing varying levels of support for businesses under one roof is a logical step forward. We’re excited to expand the BBB local presence and explore more options to help build better businesses for our community,” shares Kryistyna Hook, BBB Regional Director.

The collaboration with the Partnership for Economic Development (PED), owner of the co-working space, is another step forward in increasing support for local entrepreneurs. Other space-mates include companies offering visual design, social media, photography, videography, content creation, events programming, corporate education services, nutrition services, and more.

We are excited that BBB is moving into this space, as it compliments in so many ways our overall mission of helping businesses succeed at every level,” shares James Gray, PED Director.

Community collaboration has been a focus for Kryistyna since stepping into her BBB role last year. As a proud partner of the LHC Resource Alliance, along with other key organizations, funneling the proper support to businesses and citizens is crucial to a thriving community. Even through these uncertain times, BBB launched a small business grant program and quickly shifted to virtual programming including business start-up courses and educational summits.

Beginning in late August, or as it is safe to do so, BBB will begin accepting in-person meetings, by appointment only. Please contact Kryistyna Hook at 928.302.3701 or kryistyna.hook@bbbcommunity.org for details. F106 Co-Working Space is located at 1100 London Bridge Road, Suite F106 in Lake Havasu City.
