What is the best piece of advice you received when you started your business?
Follow your passion and go for it if you really, really believe in it. We have
followed our passion, and obviously we’ve been very blessed since.
What are the most important qualities to look for as a business owner when choosing a bank?
The ability to work with somebody who knows our business, knows our demographic
and truly knows what we’re trying to do. That has helped us immensely.
They know what we need even before we know what we need. One example is that
they anticipate our need for more change on St. Patrick’s Day (one of our
busiest days of the year), and they’re already asking us if we need the change
the day before. They seem to have the answers to our questions before we ask
them. They have a personal interest in what we’re doing, and that shows in
everything they do.
