Robert & Melissa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped a growing coffee shop purchase outdoor signage and seating, print advertising, merchandising materials, and gain additional working capital.
Robert & Melissa's story
Melissa and I are longtime Meadville residents with many years of food and retail experience. Melissa has worked in catering, as a waitress, a cook and in management at several local and national food establishments, such as Zippers, Timbercreek Tap and Table, and Red Lobster. I have also spent many years in local food and retail businesses, including the Whole Darn Thing, Burger King, National Record Mart, and Smock Plumbing. I have worked my way up into management at many of these jobs. We have set out to bring our passion for coffee and specialty foods to the downtown Meadville area. We have enjoyed serving and conversing with our customers and look forward to meeting many more in the near future.
