Back Alley Pizza

February 4, 2015 4:18:13pm

The SCKEDD Microloan program recently closed a loan with Back Alley Pizza LLC, owned by Robert Palmer. Robert worked for Norm’s Coffee Bar since 2009 and decided to purchase the business and add a wood-fired brick oven pizza business in addition to the coffee shop items at its location at 125 W. 6th, Newton, Kansas. The business will offer specialty pizzas and quality ingredients that you can’t find through the national chains. Back Alley Pizza LLC was able to obtain financing through SCKEDD’s Microloan and RLF loan programs. SCKEDD was able to partner with NetWork Kansas’ StartUp Kansas loan program to provide the remaining financing for the project. This allowed the business to purchase the existing business and obtain additional equipment, furniture/fixtures, inventory and working capital needed to open as Back Alley Pizza LLC.
