Doug and Hiedi Nicol of HQ Southern BBQ chose to partner with the SBA and Jonah Bank of Wyoming to finance their restaurant. “We worked with Dustin Porter for a guaranteed small business loan,” Nicol says. “It was really important to my wife and me that we work with a lender that wouldn’t pull the rug out from under us at the first sign of trouble. I literally had nightmares that it would be all over at the first red dollar.” When construction took longer than expected and cost more than estimated, Jonah Bank stayed on board and provided the funding needed to stay the course. “We really have to credit Jonah Bank for standing with us,” Doug says. “They believed in me and my product and they stuck with us when we needed them the most. We were both committed and we are here to stay.” With such a strong start, HQ Southern BBQ continued to thrive as competition increased and the business is planning expansion in the near future.
