Licensed massage therapist Sarah Stich incorporates her wellness lifestyle into her business. Following her passion, she opened Just Wellness, a therapeutic spa that provides massage, facial and skin care services. After three years of success, Sarah realized she needed a larger location to grow her business. She found the perfect space right around the corner in a long-vacant building in the heart of downtown Hanover.
Needing financing for the move and expansion, Sarah approached several traditional banks with no success. A local banker referred her to Community First and we were happy to help. Our loan provided Sarah with working capital and funds for leasehold improvements and new equipment. Her new space now accommodates a larger client base along with an expanded service team of massage therapists and beauticians. A vacant storefront now houses a thriving business that brought new jobs into the community and an entrepreneur’s dream continues to flourish.
