Move Here

"Our philosophy has always been to live somewhere where people want to holiday. We also wanted somewhere that had good business opportunities, but was not as busy as Sydney or Auckland" - Rich Mullaney, RM Build

"Moving to the Bay meant we could be within 80 percent of our orchards within two hours. It also put us on the doorstep of New Zealand's largest port which has always been critical to our supply chain, with over 500,000 tonnes of kiwifruit exported annually." - Carol Ward, Zespri

"From day one we felt Priority One was excited about Good Buzz coming to Tauranga. With their help, we were able to relocate our business and achieve in seven weeks what we could not achieve in another city. Priority One removed any associated barriers to ensure the business was up and running right from the start." - Alex Campbell, Good Buzz
