Every week, we'll shine the SPOTLIGHT on a local business in the "Shop Burlington County First" program, the "buy local" initiative created by Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders and its regional partners, the Burlington County Bridge Commission and the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Freeholder-Director Kate Gibbs invites you to "Shop Burlington County First":
"Our buy-local program supports Burlington County's local businesses and promotes the unique goods and services they offer. Through this program, we are keeping Burlington County's local economy strong and growing."
This Week’s SPOTLIGHT On:
County Small Business Loan Program
1900 Briggs Rd. (at corner of Rt. 38 West)
The Burlington County Bridge Commission serves as Burlington County’s Improvement Authority, and the Commission’s Department of Economic Development and Regional Planning administers a County Small Business Loan Program designed for creating and/or retaining jobs in the county.
By lveraging state and federal funds, the County Small Business Loan Program makes these funds available to local small businesses at favorable rates.
The program also provides financing for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses, which don’t typically have a full financial history required by banks for lending.
Loans are available for qualified individuals or businesses located in Burlington County. Funds from the loans can be used to purchase real estate, acquire furniture/fixtures/ equipment, or apply toward working capital.
Contact the Department of Economic Development and Regional Planning today at 609-265-5055 or firstname.lastname@example.org to see how they can help.
Or attend a Coffee and Cash Forum on the 1st Tuesday of every month from 9-10 a.m. beginning March 6. Bring your coffee mug, fill it up, grab a donut and meet with the program’s lending administrators to discuss how they can help you and your business.
HOURS: 1st Tuesday of each month 9-10 a.m.
FREE COFFEE AND DONUT FOR STOPPING BY
(Begins March 6)
If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!
For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy. When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.
