Owners David Phillips and Tammy Anderson met with the Alaska Small Business Development Center on the Kenai Peninsula in October of 2011 after about a year of being in business. They were experiencing a lot of growth in their second year and they were able to hire several additional workers with quarterly sales much higher than the year before. Phillips and Anderson were planning to approach a bank for a loan to help sustain the growth and needed some assistance putting together their business plan. Bryan Zak worked with Phillips and Anderson to create the business plan and an accurate financial projection for the business’s future earnings.
“The Southwest Alaska SBDC and in particular Bryan Zak helped me navigate the obstacles to building my business that has grown from two employees and no buildings when I first signed up as an SBDC client, to now two long term leases, ten employees, two buildings, a new wife and a dog” said Phillips, “Having the Alaska SBDC around to run questions past has given me the confidence to continue to grow my business in Seward, Alaska”.
The kind of growth Phillips has seen is amazing for any small business and is a testament to the quality of their services.
