What’s pulling rank in the business world?

ABBA approved 💸

We’re hopeful that one of Birmingham’s largest economic development projects this year will bring in lots of 🎶Money, money, money 🎶 to the city. This package is too big to be delivered through priority mail. Project Fish, a new $40.6 million FedEx Ground facility, is set to open in June 2021, bringing 285 new full- and part-time jobs to the area. Sign, sealed, delivered we’re yours! 

Forging a path out of home offices 👩‍💻

Working from home has gone on so long for some of us that the jokes are getting as stale as the coffee we used to drink in the breakroom. Which, you’ll never find at Forge’s expanded coworking space decked out with a fresh, full-service coffee bar, high-tech work pods with ~mood~ lighting and private phone booths. They’ve also implemented safety precautions so the only danger to you, while you’re working, is asking for an extended deadline. Like what you hear? Get 20% off for any Bham Now reader who signs up for a full-time or dedicated desk membership.

Let’s lay down the logistics 👏

Birmingham is getting bigger, stronger and brighter, but that’s a heavy load to carry all alone. The city added over 500 jobs in logistics and are offering an opportunity to get the credentials you need to join ’em. Email info@adahinc.com for more information about the Adah International’s MSSC logistics CLA and CLT training programs. 

Tag, you’re it 👉

Instead of adorning your back windshield with a stick family, save yourself from the cliché and purchase one of these specialty license plates supporting local Birmingham organizations. Not only will they add some pizzazz to your Kia Soul, but the profits go toward helping families with sick children at the Ronald McDonald House, protecting our state’s wildlife through the Alabama Audubon and extending a helping hand to many others.


Sorry Chicago, we’re the real Wyndy City 🌬️

There’s a different type of breeze making its way through the Magic City and this one won’t blow your hat away, but it will knock your socks off. Birmingham-based Wyndy, the “uber of babysitters” and a successful startup, launched a new service helping local employers provide childcare to its employees impacted by school and daycare closures. Basically, solving an unsolvable problem. 

Call us extreme couponers 🛍️

Because we love a good deal. What occupies even more space in our hearts? Local Birmingham business. The two passions come together better than strawberries and chocolate in our database featuring over 600 small businesses offering up specials and discounts on their lovely products. Sign up your local biz today and be featured on Bham Now for f-r-e-e.
