Salty Road - New York, NY
Back in 2011, Marisa Wu, owner of Salty Road, an artisanal salty water taffy manufacturer, decided it was time to move her business to a factory of its own. Through NYBDC's Industrial Neighborhood Business Fund (previously the Food Manufacturers' Growth Fund) in connection with Brooklyn’s Evergreen Business Exchange, she was able to access the capital she needed for an easy transition. The loan allowed Marisa to improve her equipment, hire additional staff, and buy machinery for her new location.
Her business continues to expand locally and internationally, with locations in New York City, Japan, and more. “It was a really hard time because we had just moved into our factory and we were spending a lot… we are so thankful to NYBDC and Evergreen!” says Marisa.
