▪ Entrepreneurs looking for office space have a new place in Concord where they can plant their ventures.

The Harris Morrison Co., a Concord-based real estate company, opened the Synergy Office Suites earlier this month inside the Old Creamery mixed-use development at 363 Church St. N., according to a news release.

“We feel that this project will fulfill a need in our business community where there are currently limited options available,” Harris Morrison, HMC’s principal manager, said in the release.

Ten of 14 suites have already been leased to businesses that include Elite Home Health Care, Irvin Investments, Perry Productions and Therapy Talk. The space comes with access to a break room, conference room and central courtyard.

Leasing costs start at $250 a month for space ranging from 84 to 184 square feet.

Membership is available for business owners who do not need an office but want access to the shared spaces and Wi-Fi. Anyone who wants to learn more about the suites can call HMC at 704-786-8888 or visit www.thecreameryconcord.com.

▪ ’Tis the season for pest control?

Last week, ShopTalk told you about a mosquito extermination franchise moving to Charlotte. Now, here comes another franchise aimed at killing different nuisances: rodents ... and bed bugs ... and fleas.

Truly Nolen, a family-owned pest control franchise, opened its first Charlotte location last month. The franchise, with an office on East Boulevard, serves residential and commercial customers in the Charlotte metro area, including Fort Mill and Rock Hill in South Carolina.

The company also is known for its employee vehicles: yellow mouse cars with ears and a tail.

The Arizona-based Truly Nolen was founded in 1938. It has over 80 branch offices on the West Coast as well as a number of franchises across the U.S. and in 55 countries.
