About The HUB

The Hub is a coworking community for small businesses, start-up companies, professional individuals, and entrepreneurs.

The Hub welcomes a wide range of business professionals, those who may be beginning a career on their own or those who may have an established small business already.  We provide amenities suitable for a large corporation but in a stylish, cozy, and yes vintage atmosphere that embraces today’s business person.  Every member has access to all of our features from a luncheonette space and a conference room, to a secure wifi network and a receptionist.

As your client enters the building, they will receive a warm greeting from a professional receptionist who specializes in customer service and administrative assistance. The receptionist inquires as to the member the client is visiting and coordinates a connection based on the member’s instructions, whether that be collecting a business card or a leave-behind brochure or a face-to-face interaction. The Hub’s receptionist is discrete yet informative to your guests.  Your guests are The HUB's guests and are as important to us because they are important to you.  The receptionist will screen out solicitors that may not be of interest to you or your business.

Our building, Hickory Crossing, is located in a central business location in downtown Hickory with unique qualities full of History of our city.
