John's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to have working capital for preparation of any party, no matter what the size.
John established "Timing Is Everything" (TIE) Professional Food Services, Inc, 12 years ago as a full-service catering company. TIE offers party idea services, in which individual consultation can be arranged, or full-service party planning and catering can be provided. In addition, entertainment and specially requested themes can be arranged through the company. Previously, John worked full-time at Gagosian Art Gallery in Manhattan, but he has recently reduced this to part-time due to the success of TIE. John aspires to grow his business to the point where no customer has to be turned down due to lack of initial funds. Initial capital is needed due to the payment scheme that is set up. Half the party is paid upfront and half is paid after the event. A loan is being pursued to prevent over-booking by allowing the company the working capital to purchase the materials for a party, no matter the size.
