Coffee Underground: A small business using the right resources to thrive in the heart of Greenville.
Local businesses like Coffee Underground thrive with the support of their communities. When the time came for Coffee Underground to seek lending for equipment upgrades, it was an easy decision to utilize a resource right down the street: the credit union.
The credit union really took the time to get to know my business
needs and offered me a loan package that made the most sense.
- Dana Lowie, owner Coffee Underground
Coffee Underground is a locally owned coffee house and café on Coffee Street in downtown Greenville. What started more than 20 years ago as a sidewalk beverage cart has grown into a downtown landmark and coffee epicenter for Greenville connoisseurs. With smart investments in roasting and brewing equipment and sound decision making (and perhaps a bit of bravery) over the years, owner Dana Lowie and her team have met the challenges of an evolving downtown market and established Coffee Underground as the cultural coffee-stop in the heart of the city. The credit union is proud to have been a small part of its success.
Brewing up more than the perfect cup.
Their name tells only part of the story. While Coffee Underground is known for serving specialty coffees made from beans roasted on premises, many do not realize that they also host a full café and bakery and live entertainment many nights of the week. Their daily offerings include a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, an assortment of milk shakes and protein smoothies, and a bar menu with specialty drinks. The bakery serves freshly made desserts and pastries, all baked in-house in the wee hours of the morning. In fact, Coffee Underground bakery items have become some of their most popular catering requests for events and birthdays. For more information about Coffee Underground visit them in person or go to www.coffeeunderground.info.
The right loan can help a business quickly improve operations, better serve customers, or boost the bottom line. If your business needs a loan, the credit union can help.
