Exmouth is a forward-thinking town in which small enterprises are queuing to set up, claims a leading business figure.

Chamber of commerce chairman Ian MacQueen believes Exmouth has a bright future ahead of it and has explained why small businesses are coming to the town.

“Small businesses are setting up in Exmouth because of the vibrancy of the town,” he said. “The redevelopment of Queen’s Drive is a sign of a town moving forward.”

The Journal reported how Nick Wright set up his new juice bar, Five Shakes, at Exmouth’s Indoor Market last month.

Nick said he has made leaflets and a sign to showcase his business to people.

He added: “I feel positive about the business. I’m expecting a busy summer. I think the Exmouth Festival will bring a real buzz to the town.”

Richard Wakefield, co-owner of DIY shop Homeworx, said he and his brother, Mark, have begun to understand their customers and have expanded their stock.

The business was opened on the Parade back in February after the pair spotted a gap in the market.
