When Dominick Scala was working from home, he could never find that “quite right” place in his neighborhood where he could work, eat, drink, and play. When he opened the doors to Cafe Underwood in August 2014 he realized his vision for a great neighborhood hang-out spot.
“Dominick used his loan from Main Street Launch for working capital and to purchase some equipment. ‘Having the working capital was so important for us as we were opening. The cushion makes it possible to stay open when there’s always a bill or a vendor to pay,’ says Dominick. ‘For us it was more than a loan. I know I can always to go to Scott or anyone at Main Street Launch with questions and get good advice from knowledgeable people who care about the success of my business.'”
