Why did Jelly move to Langley?

October 3, 2016

Marketing Agency Fraser Valley

Fort Langley is packed full of character and so is the team at Jelly Marketing. So it only seemed right that the two would eventually come together in perfect harmony.

There is something about Fort Langley that aligns with Jelly’s humble nature, from our first office at Blue Door Collective on Water and Cambie to our HQ in Abbotsford.

However, being at 9067 Church Street in Langley finally feels like home, with its mix of urban hustle and small town charm.

Everyone on Team Jelly has unique gifts that they bring to the table, and the results are pretty rad. We moved here because we love working with people and families, and that jives with Fort Langley’s identity. With antique shops, quaint cafes, and good old-fashioned vibes, it’s the kind of place you can really grow a business, raise a family, and make a difference.

Langley’s strong economy and abundance of development opportunities and housing affordability is proving extremely attractive to leaders and innovators who are flocking to the area. In fact, the population growth rate over the next 20 years is predicted to double.

For Jelly, Langley is the ideal epicenter for business in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver because our reach can extend to both surrounding small towns and the big city. Without having to be downtown, we can still go toe-to-toe with Vancouver-based agencies.

Why else am I happy about relocating the Jelly office to Fort Langley? I love that I can work and raise my family comfortably in the same town. Family is central to who we are, so it felt right that my wife and kids could stop by the office if they were out for an afternoon walk.

Although Langley has long outgrown its reputation as a place relegated to the past, it’s still surprisingly to some when we tell them our office address. With the Vancouver Giants junior hockey team calling the Langley Events Centre home again, and hip places like Trading Post Brewing popping up, I predict it will be ubiquitously recognized as a place to live, work, and play in no time.

For Jelly, setting down roots in a thriving community, and working with clients in both Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, inspires us come to work everyday. There are some really cool things happening in both the City of Langley and the Township of Langley, and we’re excited to be part of that remarkable growth.
