Bracken Funeral Home, located in Corry, PA, is an independently-owned funeral home that has been in business for 180 years. With a team of 29 full-time and part-time employees, their mission is to provide care and compassion for the families they work with and do anything they can to ease the burden of making end-of-life arrangements.
Jamey Meredith started at Bracken Funeral Home 20 years ago as a Funeral Director. The previous owner served as his mentor and helped him understand the business. When it came time for the previous owner to retire, it was a naturally progression for Jamey to take over the business. As they were making plans for the business acquisition and researching their SBA financing options, Jamey was put in contact with T.J. King, a Business Development Officer with FNB Small Business Finance, by Phil Persons. T.J. was able to put together a great SBA 7(a) loan package that met the funeral home’s needs, and the deal closed successfully in 2020.
Jamey Meredith had this to say about working with T.J. King and FNB Small Business Finance:
“The SBA loan process can be very involved, but T.J. was a huge help and kept everything on track. He stayed in constant communication with me to ensure we moved through the process as smooth as possible. I would definitely recommend T.J. King and FNB Small Business Finance to other business owners.”
T.J. and Jamey continue to be in touch with each other on a regular basis. We wish this company the best and look forward to continuing our partnership!
