Greg Rogers opened his Smash My Trash franchise in 2021, which serves Baltimore, Maryland and Central Maryland. He spent the majority of his career working for a Fortune 50 company in a business development capacity, primarily in sales. When Greg wanted to start his own franchise, he spoke with several financial institutions about financing opportunities. He eventually decided to go forward with an SBA loan, particularly because of the favorable terms, lower down payments, and better rates. A colleague referred Greg to FNB Small Business Finance to purchase his first truck for the business. Greg had a great experience with his first transaction and knew he would return to the bank for future financing needs. When he was ready to expand, a friend referred him to Jeff Peisach, one of our experienced Business Development Officers. Jeff walked Greg through every step of the loan process and kept in constant communication with him. The loan allowed him to purchase his second truck and the attached machinery, along with working capital, in order to become successful and profitable quickly.

Greg had this to say about his partnership with Jeff:

I would absolutely recommend Jeff and FNB to any small business owner. They took the time to understand our business model and what we’re trying to accomplish. It was a very hands-on, consultative experience. The second transaction was as easy as the first one. I can’t wait to do a third loan!

Congratulations to Greg on the expansion of his business! We wish him all the success in the world and can’t wait to partner with him again in the future.
