Souper new home for marketing experts

Big Ideas

Hull BID ‘splashed’ out to help eskimosoup look their best when the marketing agency completed the move across the city centre during the summer.

BID’s cleaning team jet-sprayed the courtyard of the company’s new home at Salter House, High Street, to ensure the exterior was as bright as the welcome inside the building.

Launched four years ago, eskimosoup operated from The Maltings for three years before expansion prompted the search for more space.

“We decided to exercise the break clause in our lease,” said John Gilbert, Managing Director of eskimosoup.

“We found a place that is very central and gives us about twice as much space so we made the move and I’m very glad we did.”

Further expansion has already followed, with the company adding its own in-house printing facility, and staffing levels are up to 17 compared with 10 when the business was founded.

“The nature of the work has also changed as we keep pace with new technology,” said John.

“As well as standard websites we now do apps, mobile websites and we fully embrace the social media side of marketing and communications.”

The company has decorated the building with graphics to demonstrate its expertise and to make their offices stand out from some residential neighbours.

“We were very happy with the interior of the building,” said John.

“The entrance was a bit overgrown but BID helped out with that, jet-spraying the pavers and making things much more welcoming.”

Hull BID City Centre Manager Kathryn Shillito added: “The whole move happened very quickly and while eskimosoup were concentrating on keeping their business up and running we were more than happy to smarten-up the entrance to the premises.

“It’s great to see a homegrown Hull business expanding in this way and writing their own success story.”
