The McDaniels of City Lumber Company

“We were unaware that the Revolving Loan Funds were available,” Jason McDaniel said. “As a new business rebounding from COVID and the uncertainties in the lumber business, the assistance we received from the SBDC was vital in our ability to expand.”

Eric and Laressa McCarty of Paradise Acres

“Almost a year into operation, we had an excellent opportunity to purchase additional acreage adjacent to our current property. But we needed up-to-date pro forma financials to approach a lender. The TSBDC connected us with a well-respected local CPA firm, who churned out solid reports quickly, at no cost to us. We were able to get a loan and buy the land, just as another buyer was making an effort to purchase the property. Our farm park grew from 16 to 24 acres less than a year in. That wouldn’t have happened without the timely assistance from TSBDC.”

Karen and Glen Mitchell of Salt MedSpa

“I don’t know how we would have survived without the TSBDC. As a small business, we need education in several areas, but we can’t afford to pay huge conference prices. We love taking advantage of the classes that are offered. It has also been extremely helpful to have someone that I can just pick the phone up and ask a couple of questions. We recommend the TSBDC to anyone we know that is starting a new business!”
