“Through the SBA 504 program, many business owners have realized the benefits of owning verses leasing,” said Barbara Morrison (www.linkedin.com/pub/barbara-morrison/1/913/20a), President and CEO, TMC Financing. “Leatherby’s Family Creamery worked with TMC to purchase one of their existing locations. Leatherby’s now owns the property at which their business has flourished for many years, enabling them to retain working capital and expand the business to future locations.”
Jim Azevedo (www.linkedin.com/pub/jim-azevedo/17/b69/245), Senior Vice President – Business Development at TMC Financing, worked with Leatherby’s Family Creamery to provide financing through the SBA 504 commercial real estate loan program. SBA 504 financing offers businesses below-market, fixed rate financing for the acquisition, renovation or construction of commercial real estate. SBA 504 loans provide long-term stability for businesses with the ability to retain working capital which can be used to further grow the business and create new jobs. The February SBA 504 interest rate is 4.12%, fully fixed for 20 years.
“The loan process with our bank and CDC made the move effortless for us,” said Alan Leatherby, co-owner of Leatherby’s Family Creamery. “The process has allowed us to finally own our own building that we have been leasing for the last thirty-two years!”
