But The Front Door is Locked!

The front door is nearly ALWAYS locked for security reasons, even when we are fully staffed.

What exactly do you do there?

Port Angeles Business Central provides office space and services for small business.doug-caricature-200.png

The primary business housed here is Best Way Websites (pajezy.com, inc).  I started PABCENTRAL because I wanted this convenient, highly visible space for my own company, but it provides a surplus of space that Best Way Websites is not using ... so we offer these other office services in the space that we do not use.

Lots of small business owners only need an office to work occasionally or infrequently. 

The virtual office / hourly office space programs were created especially for them!

That was certainly my story.  I just needed a comfortable, convenient public place to meet with clients or leads on occasion, but found myself spending hundreds of dollars each month for a space I only was using 2 to 3 times a month for an hour or so at a time.

My total office expense for a small office was over $750 per month and I was using it for no more than four hours a month.  That turned out to be $187.50 per hour!

That's the reason I moved my own business into Port Angeles Business Central, and that is why I created the company.

I was sure that there had to be others like me that wanted a professional place to meet when they needed it.

An Office Cafe? Great! What kind of Coffee do you sell?

Well, for now we are focusing upon the "office" part of office cafe!  We would LOVE to have a coffee shop in our building and we've got the space for it (even a drive-thru), but we don't right now.  We welcome you to BYOC!  (Bring Your Own Coffee).

We have a Keurig Coffee maker and always have free drip coffee available for our guests, but we don't have the fancy stuff.

Where are you located?

We are located on the southwest corner of Front and Race Street, directly across from Jack in the Box on the corner.

Do I have to pay an hourly fee to print, copy, fax, laminate, etc.?

If you are renting an office from us (hourly, daily, weekly, or other), you've got access to our copy and fax machine.  You just need to pay for the copies and faxes that you send or receive.

  • No time is charged for self-service.

However, if you require one of our staff to assist you, the minimum fee we charge is $25 and rate is $60 per hour.  So, for 1-25 minutes time, we charge $25.  After up to the first 25 minutes, we charge $1 per minute.

We MUST charge our shop rate when our time is required.

If I rent and office there, do I get a front door key, too?

No.

We provide you with a keyless access code that works with the back door (on South side of building).

Private Office Rentals

All of our private offices have locking doors.  You may extract the key from the door and lock your door if you need or want to go out.  No one can access your office if you lock your door and take your key with you.

How do I get my office listed on the Google map?

Google maps was previously associated with google places, was later renamed to "Google My Business" but is now called your Google Business Profile.

  1. You will need a google account.  It starts with setting up a gmail account.  We suggest that you create a gmail account (which will actually give you a google account) specifically for your business.  In other words, if you have a personal gmail account, we advise that you create another one (it is free) for your business as well.
  2. After you create your gmail account, find "Google My Business" type in your address in the form.  Google will not find it.  Continue to type in your complete address at Port Angeles Business Central.
  3. Be sure to keep going to claim your address - you will get to a place to "Send a Post Card."  Be sure and click it and you will see a message that tells you that you will receive the card (google will mail it here) within 2 weeks.
  4. When we get your card, we will call you (and we will email your verification code to you as well).
  5. Armed with your verification code that was mailed to Port Angeles Business Central, you login to your google account (gmail) and proceed back to Google My Business and verify your address.
  6. That's it!  Your new business office is on Google Maps!

Please Note: We have done our best to provide clear instructions for you to follow above, enabling you to do this yourself if you want to.  We have not found many small business owners that could successfully navigate their way through the google my business setup and we are sorry for that and acknowledge that it can be confusing, but we did not create the program!

Please do not call us to ask us for clarification or further instructions or to do this for you unless you are willing to pay us for the time!  We will do this all for you for $100.
