"Z’s Piñatas & More" has yet to open, but Donna already has major plans to create a successful business. For at least five years, Donna worked in the party supply industry and recently decided to take the challenge of working for herself.
Before she could open her newly-rented storefront, Donna needed working capital to purchase moonwalks to rent out, and piñatas, candy, decorations, balloons and other party supplies to sell in her town of Nixon, Texas, serving the San Antonio area. She then ventured to ACCION Texas Inc. for a business loan and was approved for funds to begin her business. She plans to recruit customers through a major grand opening with support from ads in local newspapers and on radio stations.
Donna understands she is in charge of the longevity of her business. As it is one of plenty of piñata stores serving San Antonio, Donna says she is ready to provide exceptional customer service, competitive prices, and high quality and unique products to keep clients returning for every occasion.
