When John Bogonis started Carlisle Bakery in Carlisle, PA, he thought he had the startup thing down — and for about a year, he did. But as the bakery’s fortune rose, so did operating costs — payroll, taxes, and insurance. Then there were essential equipment upgrades, like a much-needed walk-in freezer.

He wanted to apply for working capital to get some breathing room. But as a new business, Carlisle Bakery had a slim chance of getting a bank loan. After getting a Fora Financial mailing, John decided to give the firm’s offer of quick and easy financing a try. He was pleasantly surprised by the great customer service and flexible capital solutions.

John used part of his funding to purchase that much-needed walk in freezer. Now, he approaches the future with anticipation. "We couldn't do it without the help of Fora Financial," he says. "Its people are just tremendous."
