Entrepreneur receives an SBA loan to open a fast casual pizza restaurant in Castle Rock, Colorado
New York, NY – June 28, 2017 – BoeFly, the premier online marketplace that connects business borrowers and lenders from across the nation, announced that Craig Tappin, an Uncle Maddio’s Pizza franchisee, secured an SBA loan through BoeFly to open his first franchise location in Castle Rock, Colorado.
Tappin has over 25 years of experience in the restaurant industry, working his way up to become the Chief of Staff and Strategy Partner for the President and COO of McDonald’s Corporation, and later moving on to become the Chief Marketing Officer for Einstein Noah Restaurant Group. When Tappin decided to open a restaurant of his own, he chose to go with a fast-growing and successful franchise: Uncle Maddio’s Pizza.
“By becoming an Uncle Maddio’s franchise owner, I am achieving my dream of business ownership right here in my Colorado community,” Tappin said. While Tappin knew the restaurant business inside and out, he realized he needed help to efficiently find competitive financing to bring his dream to fruition. “When I got started, I was slightly anxious about the financing process, but thankfully Uncle Maddio’s introduced me to BoeFly,” Tappin explained. “I received superior service from my BoeFly financing expert who made securing my SBA loan easy. I’d recommend BoeFly to anyone who needs business financing.”
“Uncle Maddio’s is focused on adding the best long term franchise partners like Craig and supporting them through the development process and beyond,” said Jocelyn Blain, Uncle Maddio’s Chief Development Officer. “We know that financing is a critical aspect of the opening process, which is why we partner with BoeFly to ensure that Craig and all new franchisees are on the fast track to successful financing.”
“The BoeFly team is thrilled to have supported Craig Tappin in securing the financing he needed to start his Uncle Maddio’s Pizza,” Mike Rozman, CEO of BoeFly, said. “We love working with new business owners like Craig and we can’t wait to pay his Uncle Maddio’s a visit on our next trip to Colorado.”
