Snoqualmie business owners open co-working space in Snoqualmie Ridge | Spotlight on Business 2018

Residents of the Valley who run a small business or work from home have a new opportunity to work from a professional space in Snoqualmie. Founded by 13-year Snoqualmie residents Christine and Allyn Wilcock, Snoqualmie Ridge Office Suites offers a co-working office space to Valley residents.

Christine Wilcock said the co-working space came about when they were looking for a location to base their own business from, once they realized they could no longer work at home. They run Advance Anesthesia Services, an anesthesia staffing company that works with hospitals and clinics to provide the services of certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs).

When they found an open location in the Snoqualmie Ridge business park, they bought the unit and decided to turn the extra space into small individual offices and to offer a co-working space for others like them.

“We really just wanted a space for us, but there was nothing available toward places in Bellevue, the commute was just really difficult for us to want to do,” she said.

By opening their working space to be available to others, they hope to promote the small business community of Snoqualmie. Since opening earlier this month, they have already welcomed their first co-working customer.

“There are a lot of people you see at Starbucks who have online business and just need a desk,” Christine said. “This is going to be so much better to have those kinds of people who need no distraction.”

In addition to co-working spaces and private offices, the Wilcocks also provide a mail and address service so business owners can keep their personal home addresses separate from their work addresses. Allyn said they are also planning on holding business development workshops in the future.

“We are going to start some mastermind groups for people who want to learn how to grow their businesses,” he said. “We are going to do some meet-ups up here and try to get some excitement about small business in Snoqualmie.”
