So the meeting went very well I had a lot of fun presenting to the so called "big wigs." They were really nice guys with a lot of info about loans and getting them. Unfortunately I do not have the 150k to put down. I will keep trying to find a lender that will give me the full 700k to get this thing up and running. The "big wigs" are still going to help guide us but I'm sure they will not give us the loan. They did suggest another place out of Seattle that does loans specifically like this from the SBA customers. I just think it wasn't the right time (too early). I would like to get the loan sometime around the fall so that we can have a grand opening in the spring and do some cookin' all summer! Thanks for the prayers and well wishing but it ain't over till the singing lady leaves the building.
