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
