Inside Business First: Pronto Seed

25 Jan 2023 –– Community

We spoke to Pronto Seed, one of our tenants in Blackburn Business Centre to find out all about their blooming wonderful business!

What does your business do?

We sell eco-grow-at-home seed kits. Our ranges include growing your own edibles such as vegetables and chilies to flowers and bulbs. We aim to make gardening and growing your own produce accessible to everyone. We are on a journey to create products that help consumers towards a more sustainable future.

What is your business called?

Pronto Seed

How have you settled in?

We have been made very welcome by the staff and the other tenants in the building. This Christmas, we gave every company a surprise eco-grow-your-own plants kit!

Why did you decide to operate from our offices?

Business First Blackburn is an excellent location for motorway access and is close to our sister company in Mill Hill Blackburn.

When did you move in/how long have you been at Business First?

We moved in the 1st week of August 2022.

How big is your office?

We're in a medium-sized space with room for around 11 people. There are only 8 of us currently, but we are growing rapidly.

What benefits do you get from operating from Business First?

We have a designated space for our marketing and design team. It is away from the manufacturing plant, so we can focus on being creative and productive.

Do you make use of the free facilities at Business First?

Yes, we regularly use the boardrooms for our staff and leadership meetings. They are spacious and ideal for brainstorming sessions.

What would you say the best thing Business First has done for your business is?

Business First has given us a friendly and pleasant atmosphere to work in. The boardrooms are ideal for use when the senior leaders and sales teams visit. They look professional and are very comfortable.

Would you recommend Business First to other SMEs? 

Yes definitely
