SCKEDD’s District Loan Committee recently approved a loan to Steamy Joe, LLC located at 216 W. Central, Arkansas City, Kansas. The funds will be used to assist this start-up coffee house by providing needed working capital, equipment, and improvements for the business. Owner Ruth Ryel has experience being a cook and will be the main operator of the business. As the business is located near the community college in Arkansas City, they plan to attract Cowley College students and downtown business owners and employees. In addition to coffee and drinks, the Steamy Joe will offer bakery items and sandwiches. The Cowley County E-Community Program was able to partner with SCKEDD to help complete the project needs and provide additional working capital for the business. Phone: 580-352-2978
