Success Story Showcase: See How Four Businesses Benefited from SBA 504 Financing


Entrepreneurs work hard to differentiate their business so they can provide the perfect products and services to their customers. Texas Certified Development Company (TxCDC) takes the same approach when helping small business owners who are considering purchasing property, a building or major equipment. TxCDC works with each entrepreneur to tailor an SBA 504 loan to meet the owner’s needs with the most favorable deal possible.

Here are 4 examples of how TxCDC made it work:

  • Tim Prukop, the owner of 1UpSports, had just opened his Austin-area business when he began to think about taking it to the next level. TxCDC helped to make that dream a reality. Click here to download PDF.
  • An initial 504 loan helped Krisana Puccio and her co-owners open the Pineapple School in San Antonio. The success of this early learning center led to a waiting list of more than 300 children. Puccio and her co-owners decided to get a second 504 loan from TxCDC to build a second location. Click here to download PDF.
