The North Central Massachusetts Development Corporation (NCMDC) recently approved a $20,000 loan to Elizabeth Sodano-Brisebois and Joseph Brisebois, owners of L & J’s Cormier Catering located in Fitchburg.
Elizabeth and Joseph are expanding their catering business and recently purchased Shirley Catering and their building at 70 King St., Fitchburg. They have successfully run L & J’s Cormier Catering since 2009 and with the acquisition of Shirley Catering they plan to continue growing by providing quality catering service to even more events. NCMDC’s loan was part of a gap financing partnership with TD Bank and helped Elizabeth and Joseph with the renovations, equipment purchase and working capital portion of the deal. Two full time jobs were retained as part of this project. For more information on L & J’s Cormier Catering visit them online at cormiercatering.com.
As a microloan lender, NCMDC can provide loans to small businesses up to $150,000 for working capital, equipment, inventory, expansion and working with our banking partners to provide gap financing for the final piece of a project.
