Type of Business: Deli/Catering
Project Type: Major Expansion

 

Opportunity
Over the past 30 years, Ann Arbor’s Zingerman’s Deli has become a mainstay in the community. Business was so healthy the famous building along Detroit Street began bursting at the seams. Two years ago, the partners approached United Bank & Trust with a multi-million dollar expansion project. The plan consisted of building a two-story environmentally-smart addition and demolishing a nearby structure, giving Zingerman’s 10,400 square feet of additional space for new seating, kitchens and speedier, more efficient checkout lines.

Solution
The lending experts at United immediately rolled up their sleeves and worked closely with Zingerman’s team to find creative ways to get this complicated expansion plan from blueprint to construction. Our funding package included: conventional business loans and SBA guaranteed loans.

Benefit
The results are spectacular!  Customers are better served, new jobs will be added and the neighborhood maintains its historic look. From groundbreaking to grand opening, United was there every step of the way.

United Bank & Trust is pleased to have Zingerman’s as a client and is proud to offer creative solutions to help this iconic business continue to grow.
