I would . . . like to thank you, Joe, for always being there to answer my questions. Even after being in business for a while now, you make me feel . . . safe and comfortable coming to you with my plethora of questions!
Amy Dapkewicz, owner of Carpet One of Redding, was considering the purchase of an existing business. This was a large undertaking and she needed assistance with the process. Amy met with our loan specialist, Joe Rodola. Together, they reviewed Amy’s financial situation. Joe helped her create a two year financial forecast, assisted her with a business plan, and stayed with her through the long approval process. A little over 8 months later, she received final loan approval and bought her new business.
A couple years later, when COVID-19 hit, Amy once again turned to the SBDC for the Paycheck Protection Program. Once again, she received the funds she needed to keep going.
