Hoist & Crane Service Group
When it came time to expand our corporate offices in Jefferson Parish, we needed to acquire vacant state-owned land adjacent to our property. We didn’t know where to start and turned to JEDCO for help. They jumped on the task and quickly got us in touch with the state and local officials needed to guide us through the process. We successfully acquired the land and now have the space and ability to expand our presence in the parish. JEDCO’s assistance in the process was critical and we look forward to partnering with them on future opportunities.
Stained Glass Wine House
From the beginning of coming up with a dream to open a business JEDCO has been instrumental in guiding us along the way. We have been assisted in every step along the process and they continue to help us grow our business and further enhance our relationships with other businesses. From assisting with funding options to helping craft a media image, JEDCO's expert team will help grow your strengths with full support. The bar has been set on what it means to work with an economic development organization and on behalf of Stained Glass Wine House we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
Making Kingfish Cider a reality was an arduous task that only came to completion due to the efforts of JEDCO. There was assistance all along the way from helping scout out properties, meetings with parish officials, contacts within the permitting departments and most importantly financing. Operating a business at any time is a struggle but especially now. I am glad that I partnered with JEDCO. I feel like they have my back and want me to succeed.
The JEDCO Team works best by meeting with businesses to hear your story. What’s working? What could use a little help? Our team wants to know your business goals, aches and pains, needs. We want to get the HEART of what makes your business tick. Based on what they learn in that meeting, the team will offer guidance, support, connections, and more. The best part? IT’S TOTALLY FREE!
