FRANKSTON Council has chosen eight businesses to share in $120,000 in funding to help “give local businesses an opportunity to take their next step towards success”.
Among those successful in applying to the business grants program include a brewery, a town planning company, an archery range and a cafe.
Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said “not only did we receive a number of high quality applications from across the city, but also from businesses looking to invest in Frankston.”
“Council has recognised the previous success of the Frankston City business grants program in supporting the local business community and has doubled the funding available. We’re incredibly proud of the fact that all but two of the previously funded grant recipients [since 2012] continue to thrive in Frankston City.”
He said the funding would generate 35 new jobs.
“It’s amazing to see the number of businesses we have in the area doing awesome things and being leaders in their industries.”
