Fakenham ‘born and bred’ accountant Tim Vogel has achieved a long-held ambition byopening a new business branch in the town where he grew up.
Chartered accountant Tim runs Grow Your Business East Anglia Ltd along with his business partner, Annie Turner. They already have offices in the Corn Exchange at Swaffham.
On Wednesday the branch at 35 Norwich Street was officially opened by Fakenham Town Mayor Gilly Foortse.
“It means that we are the newest business in town right next door to the longest established business in town, W Parker and Son, who have been on site for about 125 years.
“As a Fakenham boy born and bred, I have long wanted to open in the town, and while we started in Swaffham we have for the past year been trialling a presence in Fakenham,” said Tim, whose father Colin Vogel, now retired, used to be the town vet.
Grow Your Business which started off in Swaffham has five members of staff, and supports local businesses across Norfolk and Suffolk, with a few as far afield as Liverpool and Sussex. A new member of staff has been taken on with the opening of the branch in Fakenham.
Said Tim: “Our firm aims to help people grow their business, we are not just accountants for our clients. With that in mind we have a unique offer to clients, in that we are providing a free shop window to any client for at least two weeks at the new Fakenham office.
“Accountants often talk about wanting to help their clients grow, well we put our money where our mouth is and actually advertise their business for them. We feel that small businesses in rural towns do not always get the professional support they deserve and want to help address this, and a high street presence allows them to pop in when it suits them.
“Lots of our clients do not have a shop front, so this will enable them to showcase their business by illustrating what they do.”
