SBDC Success Story
Business can be a real jungle, just ask Brenda Gleason, owner of Jungle Critters, a pet store and grooming parlor located on Market Street in Corning, New York. After renting her building for 13 years, Brenda decided to make building renovations and expand on her inventory. Brenda contacted Susan Buchanan from the SBDC. Susan provided assistance in developing a business plan to secure financing.
“If not for the help of Susan Buchanan and the SBDC team, I would not have been successful getting the finances I needed,” said Brenda.
