Visit Kitchen Concepts
Jim Garlock, after working for two large kitchen and bath show room companies in the Lockport, NY area for fourteen years, decided to strike out on his own and started Kitchen Concepts in August 1997. After working out of a small basement office, Jim realized he needed a showroom to properly display cabinets, counters, and fixtures in order to continue growing his business.
Never needing business financing before, Jim attended a small business seminar sponsored by Niagara County Community College Small Business Development Center and NYS Senator George Maziarz to see what was available to assist a small business like his. It was at this seminar that Jim learned about the importance of a business plan and what bank lenders look for from prospective applicants. It was also at this seminar that Jim met a representative of PathStone Enterprise Center, Inc. (PECI). The representative explained the various forms of alternative financing available and how they can work together and with bank financing to assist small business such as Kitchen Concepts.
Working with the Small Business Development Center Jim crafted a thorough business plan while searching for an acceptable site to relocate. After a more than five month search Jim located a site that met his needs. Even with a sizable equity contribution the bank was not able to provide the balance of the funds needed to complete the project. Recalling his conversation with PECI at the business seminar Jim contacted PECI. Working with Jim and the bank, PECI was able to provide the remaining funds necessary to complete the relocation of Kitchen Concepts. According to Jim, “Using PathStone to help with the financing of my new showroom was the best thing I did. Unlike traditional banks, PathStone cares about the client. PathStone offers sound advice and was very helpful through the entire process. I couldn’t have done it without them”.
With the opening of the new showroom Kitchen Concepts created three new jobs and removed a vacant store front in the downtown area of the City of Lockport. PathStone is proud to assist small business in New York create new jobs and build strong communities.
