Uncle Al Poboys - Small Business Commercial Spotlight
By: Fidelity Bank
In August of 2022, our client, Uncle Al Poboys LLC, approached us about opening a NOLA-style Poboy restaurant in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where the owners had just relocated, to bring flavors from their adopted home to a town that didn’t have anything like it, and where transplants like themselves attending the University of Southern Mississippi could get a taste of home.
After discussing the plan with the owners, reviewing their experience and background, and determining that yes, they would be using fresh Leidenheimer bread, Jonna Turner, Commercial Relationship Manager, packaged their request and worked with Commercial Credit and the SBA Department to find a way to say yes.
This past week, we visited with our client and attended the Grand Opening of their dream restaurant in their new hometown. It was a true testament to the collaborative efforts put together to make this vision happen, and the client could not have been more appreciative.
