NI Biz reports on the growth of small businesses in Jersey City since 2013. Over 150 small businesses have opened and over 9000 jobs have been created during that time, according to Mayor Steven Fulop.
Restaurateur David Massoni of Talde has been dealing with big city building departments for more than five years — that means he has known the feeling of “if you couldn’t figure it out on your own, tough luck.”
That’s not what he found when he and his partners came to Jersey City.
“Things went really smoothly,” said Massoni, who recently opened Talde Jersey City and Carrino Provisions on Erie Street. He added: “And what we’ve seen over here is that, for the most part, if you had a question or were running into any roadblocks, if the person you were talking to didn’t have the answer, they were finding it out for you or pointing you in the right direction.”
