The Better Business Bureau of Southwest Louisiana held a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday for its new office.
The new building will be on the corner of Lake Street and Sale Road in Lake Charles.
Local business owners and Mayor Randy Roach joined the celebration.
BBB President Carmen Million said the new office will allow the public easier access to BBB services.
"It is going to allow us to have programs and meetings here that we weren't able to have in our facility. And of course another reason we wanted to build was the visibility and accessibility to the public -both the businesses and consumers," she said.
The building's estimated opening is sometime in late October.
