Kayla Mendoza always knew that she wanted to empower women with fashion. She remembers as a young child, seeing her mother, a school teacher, change out of her work clothes to get ready for a wedding. “I saw her transform when she put on that dress,” she said. “I saw how good she felt. Seeing my mom feel beautiful and excited to go out was my first glimpse at how a garment can truly change someone’s attitude and day.”
Before you even have to do a single pushup, all you have to do is spend five minutes with Focus Fitness owner Dave Schulze and you’ll see why his customers seek out his personal and group training services. His inspiration is contagious, and for the owner of a small business, he definitely has a big vision for the future.
Brice Hand had extensive experience in poultry farming and owned acres upon acres of land, but he needed help to make the most of it. Thanks to BCL’s assistance, he has used the SBA 504 Loan program twice to construct new hen housing with state-of-the-art energy efficient equipment, making Brice one of the largest poultry producers in his community and for all of Tyson Foods.
As new homeowner Steven Hanaway stands over his cast iron skillet talking about his love of cooking he says, “One of my favorite things about owning a home is that I love being able to pick my own appliances.”
BCL is proud to provide business coaching for 100 long-standing local businesses through the Austin Legacy Business Relief Grant program, supporting art and music venues, restaurants, bars, and theatres that have been in Austin for 20 or more years.
Glenda Colmenero has always worked for herself. “I like to be responsible for my own success,” she said.
And after years of working in real estate in the 5,000-population town of Giddings, Texas, she was becoming frustrated with the difficulty for sending documents and receiving packages, which would often be left by the side of the road or under a tree hundreds of feet from the front door. So instead of complaining, Glenda decided to solve the problem. This June, she will be opening her own Business Depot, Giddings’ first-ever business supply and mail center.
From the sound of it, you would almost think Teresa Villanueva was running a nonprofit in addition to a full-service cafeteria, catering, and delivery company that focuses on providing healthy, homemade, affordable meals for everyone.
Teresa and her husband Juan incorporated several social benefits into their start-up, TV Dinners, as she began to realize the need for them. Started 4 years ago in the Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA) building, TV Dinners began by serving breakfast tacos, and in the beginning Teresa used the proceeds from one meal to purchase supplies for the next.
