Success Stories

Financing to help businesses thrive.

Skyline Transport Group

Skyline Transport had outgrown their headquarters and trucking operations facilities, which are in separate locations. The company needed to construct one centralized building without draining their cash flow. See how an SBA-504 loan orchestrated through KeyBank allowed for a reduced down payment and minimal interest-only payments until construction completes.

Rock Haven Climbing

As a start-up business, Rock Haven Climbing needed a construction loan to build large, complex climbing structures without over-leveraging their limited, early-stage cash flow. See how an SBA-7A loan through KeyBank allowed for a lower down payment and a manageable interest-only payments period through construction and a few months thereafter.

Farine Bakery & Café

So many customers – so little time and space! See how an SBA-7A loan through KeyBank put Farine Bakery & Café on track to open its second, much larger location.

Ski Butlers

Ski Butlers is making a difference by creating awareness around how a business’s selection of a bank makes a statement that can help reverse negative impact to the environment.

SSWING™

Owner and PGA member Scott Young has built his business and his state-of-the-art indoor golf improvement facility around biomechanics, physiology and metrics. See how advantageous SBA loan conditions and KeyBank SBA expertise made it possible for SSWING to weather the pandemic slowdown in the heart of New York City.

Kay Catering

Running her catering business out of a commissary kitchen posed limitations of space, equipment and time. See how an SBA-504 loan made it possible for Kay Kim, owner of Kay Catering, to acquire her own building, enabling her business to easily serve large corporate orders.

Adeptus Partners

Adeptus, a tax and audit firm that specializes in serving the entertainment industry, has grown their range of expertise significantly, in part organically, as well as through strategic acquisitions of smaller accounting firms. “A major challenge with acquiring CPA firms is that we’re purchasing intangible assets,” says Howard Krant, Managing Partner. That means Krant’s firm can’t finance their acquisitions through traditional commercial loans.

Nancy Jo’s Burgers & Fries

A chain of seven old-fashioned burger joints in Oregon, Nancy Jo’s Burgers & Fries was devastated by the pandemic, and facing the likelihood of closing. Owners Richard and Nancy Giddens turned to Key for help with a PPP loan so they could keep their business and support more than 60 employees.

Cazadero Steakhouse

See how a first-time restaurant entrepreneur used the Paycheck Protection Program and her relationship with KeyBank to keep her business going through a burglary, COVID-19 and raging wildfires.

Sigma Telecommunications Services

Launching a telecommunications business in 2020, business partners Corey White and Alvin Johnson knew they had challenges ahead. But in KeyBank, they found a financial institution who understood their company’s potential and helped them secure the capital they needed to get on the path to success.

EuropaKids Preschool

Entrepreneurs Kelly Milbrandt and her husband Colin Wiggins knew that Seattle was ready for a new type of preschool experience. So, they started EuropaKids Preschool, which provides Spanish-language immersion instruction. As parents vied for open spots, they identified the need to launch a second location. See how KeyBank helped them secure various loans to grow while taking care of their staff in the midst of the pandemic.

Señor Taco

Lucia Náñez moved from sunny Mexico to Alaska in January 1986. She and her husband, Jose ("Chepo") had a vision to open a restaurant serving food from their native state of Zacatecas in central Mexico, where Lucia had learned to cook from her family.
