The Loveland Business Development Center is extremely proud of the businesses that grow and thrive through the assistance they receive from our center. We love to share the stories of their success.
Reaching our 17th year of business, we entered that territory where the old way of doing things became utterly insufficient. Working one-on- one with Robert Coffey, a master of dissecting & visually detailing the bits of your business (small or large), we managed to dial in a comprehensive financial budget covering every department top to bottom. We are on track this year in increasing our profitability by over 400% year over year (that’s not a typo). It’s hard to imagine what things would have looked like without Robert’s help; his time, energy, and experience reach far beyond our expectations.

I have worked with the LBDC for over three years regarding the start of my business Fresh Plate Catering. The consulting I have received ranges from developing a business plan, determining if the concept is doable and profitable, compiling financials for loan application, commercial kitchen design to being introduced to experts in different industries. I met with these industry specialists regarding web design, web content, commercial real estate location stats and traffic patterns, industry research locally and nationally, marketing plan, legal advice. Every suggestion, class attended and one-on- one consulting has been golden. It is singularly the best investment of my time I have made.
In addition to that, contacts I have made, either through LBDC events or leads provided to me, are some of the best I have.
I can not fully express the benefit of my involvement with the LBDC.
