“Sema Parc is a generous space, adaptable to all businesses, whether we are talking about top companies operating in class A buildings, or we are talking about small production companies, logistics or smaller activities, which have different needs. We are actively open to the business community and we are glad that the founders of Pain Plaisir have chosen Sema Parc for their newest production space. We hope that, in a short time, we will be able to host them a new bakery-store. " - said Tina Virlan, Leasing Manager at River Development.
The rented space has an area of 1,000 square meters and is located in one of the existing buildings in Sema Parc, which have recently undergone a process of rehabilitation and modernization. The space is suitable for small production activities. The building has all the necessary utilities and is very well connected to the infrastructure and facilities present in Sema Parc.
"We have chosen to expand our business in Sema Parc with a new production space, for excellent positioning and for the facilities of the community developed here. Our strategy, which currently focuses only on Bucharest, is to open stores "close to home", because artisanal bread must be eaten fresh and bought almost daily, in the absence of preservation and loosening agents. Sema Parc has given us the ingredient of a community in which we can grow, as we wish, in the coming years. ” - said Irina Stancescu, Co-Founder of Pain Plaisir.
