Client Story: The Food Sermon

When you’re ready to preach to a broader fan base, trust Skopos with your expansion.

When Rawlston and Annette turned to us to expand The Food Sermon into a second location, we translated their expansion dreams into a viable business model. We leveraged our relationships, years of experience in lending, and astute attention to detail to coordinate a major expansion project between The Food Sermon team, their new landlord, architects, contractors, engineers, and two different SBA lenders (including their loan officers, analysts, and underwriters) to achieve a comprehensive financing deal.

The most important part? Rawlston and Annette were able to continue successfully operating The Food Sermon’s existing location the entire time. ee

OBJECTIVE

Strategically expand The Food Sermon into a completely new location, new customer base and new build-out project.

 

SOLUTION 

When Rawlston and Annette turned to us to expand The Food Sermon into a second location, we got to know their business so well that we could talk you through their balance sheet in our sleep. Skopos translated the Williams’ expansion dreams into the financing deal of a lifetime by creating a compelling business plan, realistic month-by-month financial projections, and an organized lender-facing loan package.
