My client Gourmet Guru <website> was recently presented the Small Business of the Year Award for the Bronx by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Read more here. A while ago I helped them get a $6MM bank loan package to finance the purchase and renovation of an enlarged facility, renovate their existing facility for rental and an expanded operating line of credit. We closed that group of loans in the midst of the financial meltdown with a bank that had changed ownership less than a week before. WHEW!
Jeff and Kim Lichtenstein and all the Guru’s have taken these resources, created a beautiful and highly efficient refrigerated warehouse and greatly expanded their business. Super congratulations to them. I’m honored and humbled to have been a small part of such a highly successful team effort.
