“Our journey with SEED began in 2009, when we transitioned from renting a building to owning our own facility. Fast forward to the present, it was an easy choice to turn to SEED once again. On both occasions, Lisa Holmes was instrumental in making the process easy and attainable, allowing our dream to become a reality. Even during a pandemic, we were able to nearly triple our square footage and grow from 27 employees in 2009 to just over 80 in 2021. It is with the support, encouragement, and the expertise of Lisa that these accomplishments are possible. Lisa has a wealth of knowledge and is relentless in her pursuit to help businesses grow. We couldn’t be more grateful for SEED, its support of small businesses and their owners."

Angie was knowledgeable, professional, and super helpful through the process. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

"We are very thankful for SEED helping us purchase the building and equipment for our new restaurant. We started the process of looking for a new location in early 2020, but then the pandemic hit the country, and while we had strong business plans, many lenders turned us down because of the effects of COVID on our industry. Right before giving up on pursuing our dream, we were referred to SEED. We worked with their great team, and were able to get our business up and running in few months! Thank you SEED!"
