Brad Hunsucker graduated from Muskingum University and has over 25 years of experience in the cleaning and restoration industry. He has been able to gain experience in strategic planning, multi-unit business development, financial planning, and project management. He has been with COIT for over 10 years and knew from the beginning he wanted to open his own franchise eventually. In February 2021, the previous owner, Harvey, approached Brad with a plan to have him acquire the business.
After speaking with his accounting firm, they determined that an SBA loan would be a great fit for the acquisition, and Brad was put in contact with Tim Carson. Tim Carson, one of our experienced Business Development Officers, was able to work with Brad to structure an SBA 7(a) loan that met his needs.
Brad had this to say about his experience working with Tim Carson and the team at FNB Small Business Finance:
Tim was incredible throughout the whole process. I had never been through this process so I was very wary. I knew my purchase was very complex and had a number of obstacles. It took roughly 7-8 months to get the deal done, but Tim was with me every step of the way. I can remember our first phone call. Tim made me feel so comfortable and put me at ease almost immediately. I knew I had someone on my side and he stayed there the whole time. Tim is extremely responsive, 24/7 it seemed. It was just an incredible experience and Tim had everything to do with that. I would absolutely recommend Tim Carson and the entire team at FNB Small Business Finance.
We enjoyed partnering with Brad on the acquisition of the COIT Cleaning and Restoration Services franchise in Ohio. We wish him all the success and growth in the future!
