Jun. 17, 2013 – SALT LAKE CITY — BoeFly, the premier online marketplace connecting small business borrowers with lenders and a strategic ally of the International Franchise Association (IFA) to expand credit access within the franchise community, announced today that Shane McKnight, president and CEO of a Delta Disaster Services location in Salt Lake City, Utah, secured a start-up loan through a connection made by BoeFly. Delta Disaster Services is a full-service property restoration firm.
McKnight, a life-long Salt Lake City resident, will focus the business on insurance restoration, handling all emergency services and reconstruction for both water and fire damages, as well as more specialized work in mold remediation and asbestos abatement. With more than 20 years of construction experience, including 15 years of construction business ownership and management experience, McKnight will apply his skills toward operating his new disaster services business.
“The business ownership and management experience that I’ve had over the years has helped me maximize efficiency in all aspects of business, including the key area of financing,” McKnight said. “When I needed financing, Delta Disaster Services fortunately pointed me to BoeFly, which completely streamlined the process of applying for a small business loan and allowed me to move quickly with starting the business.”
McKnight’s loan request received interest from several lenders across the country, and after evaluating the financing options, he chose to work with Mountain America Credit Union in Phoenix, Ariz.
