Some 28 new businesses open in PWC in September

Some 28 businesses received a ‘Certificate of Occupancy’ or official letter to ‘Open for Business’ in September from Prince William County’s Department of Development Services (Small Business Project Management Program). This brings the 2021 total to 280 new enterprises that are now “Open for Business,” according to a news release.

In all, 91 small businesses opened during the third quarter (July-Aug.-Sept.), which a county source said is 58 more businesses than in the same period in 2020.

Tenant Layout Projects at 108,297 square feet for the year has increased square footage more than five times in comparison to the same time in previous years.

“In September, six healthcare related service businesses opened, which is indicative of the year-long trend of healthcare or medical practices coming to Prince William County, with more than 30 opened year-to-date,” said Wade A. Hugh, Director, Department of Development Services.

Jammin Island BBQ joined the long list of new restaurants to the area, which opened in the ePiQ Food Hall at 14067 Noblewood Plaza in Woodbridge (Occoquan district). A new Subway opened on Route 1 and Blessings On-the-Go has occupied the former, long-time mom & pop grocery store at the corner of Kahns Road and Purcell Road.

In the continuing lineup of beauty and spa businesses in the County, Beyond Studio moved four doors down to #133, 13895 Hedgewood Drive, Woodbridge, Queenly Nails & Day Spa located to Potomac and Tessy Hair Braiding Studio and Eyebrow Art are now located in Brentsville.

“Establishing a specialized service business in a building with no prior occupancy of ‘specialized services’ e.g., opening a veterinary practice at a former bank, provides unique circumstances that come with additional building regulations and permits. These changes in new tenant/owner occupancy types underscore the level of expertise the Program Managers are providing small business customers.” added Hugh.

As lead Development Services Agency for the County, the Department of Development Services is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code by reviewing commercial and residential construction plans, issuing permits, inspecting structures, and enforcing building code requirements. The Department also manages the site and subdivision plan review and permit issuance process, administers the posting and releasing of bonds and escrows, and issues zoning permits.
