What do their clients say?
Avery’s, Springerville, AZ: Owner Lance Avery says, "The SBDC at Northland Pioneer College is a fabulous resource, staffed with people who have a great deal of experience with starting and sustaining a small business. Their expertise was paramount in navigating our first two years in business. As a result, we are flourishing, growing and exploring new opportunities that will take us to the next level!”
Kay Supply Inc., Snowflake, AZ: Owner Terril Kay says, "I was really impressed that someone was willing to help small businesses. I met with them and from that time forward we have continually worked together. The NPC SBDC has helped me have a better understanding of how to make good business decisions. Their expert help, information and training classes are an asset for all business success. Through the SBDC, we found a better way to look at and advance Kay Supply."
Firefox Restaurant, Alpine, AZ: Owner Steve Malcom says, “The SBDC has guided us in developing a White Mountain Restaurant Association, a system in which to hire and train restaurant staff.” In an effort to fortify the local restaurants and develop synergy versus standard competition, NPC's Rich Chanick assisted in the creation of the association where customers would benefit from better service and all the restaurants would benefit from an economy of scale due to combined efforts on shared needs such as training and marketing.
