The Dog House of Delaware gets New Owners

“Mike Hahn and 44 Business Capital were true consultants in driving us through uncharted waters. As first-time business owners Mike made us feel comfortable and confident through the entire process. His response time and attentiveness were second to none!”

CHALLENGE

Chris Taggart and Brian Kirwin had the amazing opportunity to purchase this 50 year old "hot dog institution" including a highly visible piece of property on a major highway in Delaware. After a regional bank wasted numerous weeks and struggled to deliver on promises about funding a food-service business during COVID-19, Mike Hahn and the 44 team were referred in to deliver a solution to save the deal. By asking a lot of questions and taking a deep dive into the business it was evident these were the right buyers for this unique purchase. 44 was able to structure an 85% financing package for the entire project and fund this transition when all hope seemed lost.
