"It's all about restoring lives. That's why I do this. I believe that restoring a smile will transform a life."
Quite frankly, the business would not be a business without assistance from Vallorie and the KSBDC. I did not know where to start. She worked closely with my Mom and me to develop a business plan that was very well received by the lender.
We needed immediate assistance when we went into negotiations with a foreign supplier. Once, we called Dave Oetken on a Saturday and said ‘help’. He immediately met with us and helped us put a distribution deal together.
The guidance KSBDC provided was crucial to getting past that first difficult step of starting this part of the venture.
We are grateful for the assistance we received from the KSBDC. They understood our needs and worked with us to make our dream of having a meat processing plant in Henry County a reality.
An incredible organization with a wealth of information and knowledge that can help a novice who is starting a business to be able to compete.
We wouldn’t be here without you! - Ann Shadle, owner of Mayan Café
I wish that I had known about this resource earlier. If I had come to the SBDC sooner a lot of my stresses and struggles would have been minimized! The help and support has been amazing.
