Pat Verillo started Tony's Mobile marine repair in 200 in his Morrisonville, Ny home garage. This location was small and did not meet Pat's needs, so he looked to purchase a larger location.

Pat's current location, on Route 374 in Merrill, NY. is in a great position for future growth with summer camps and lakes surrounding his property. Pat needed funding to purchase this location so he came to the North Country SBDC for assistance. Pat succeeded in securing funding to purchase the property, make renovations and move into the location.

Client Quote:

"The SBDC and my counselor, Andy Allison, walked me through the funding process, assisted me in putting together the financials and writing the business plan so I could receive funding. He gave me the ssistance that I needed to get my funding."
