From Baker to Manager to Owner. Long time Employee Acquires Bakery Business with $2,675,000 SBA Loan

"Daniel O'Meara and his team of professionals at 44 Business Capital worked side by side with my business advisor and my attorney to finance my ownership in the bakery. Now that I own 100% of the bakery, I can focus on growing the business to meet the needs of my customers, namely providing the best breads to the best restaurants in Colorado."

CHALLENGE

After 28 years of working in and managing Bluepoint Bakery, Willie Ramirez needed a bank and lender that would enable him to acquire full ownership of the bakery. Mr. Ramirez used the partial ownership in the business as his equity injection and 44 Business Capital financed the transaction leaving all of the employees and the entire operation intact. Now, Willie is able to enjoy operating a fully staffed bakery that takes pride in their unique fresh-baked creations. Bluepoint Bakery bakes and delivers fresh wholesale bread and pastries to other businesses in food service, to local independent restaurants, to corporate dining rooms, hospitals, schools, coffee shops and more. With over 30 years baking the finest breads in metro-Denver, Willie Ramirez and the family members that surround him in the bakery every day, are poised to continue to bake the finest breads in the region.
