Longhorn Coffee Company SBDC Success Story

Economic Impact

  • Business Expansion
  • Jobs Retained: 6
  • Jobs Created: 2

In 2017, Scott and Laurie Deckers entered the San Angelo Business Plan Competition, where they took third place winning $15,000 and in-kind prizes.

They took their winnings and increased their production capabilities and expanded their market service area. Additionally, the Deckers leased a facility that allowed them to streamline their processes. In the years since, they have outgrown the original facility and have now moved into a new location closer to downtown.

Working with their lender, they were able to purchase the property and remodel it to suit their needs. They continued to work with their business advisor, James Leavelle, senior certified business advisor, at the ASU Small Business Development Center. The Deckers are appreciative of their business relations with the SBDC.

“SBDC is a priceless tool for any business! We are so thankful for James Leavelle and all of the SBDC staff! It is so great to know if we need anything the answer is not far away! We really do think of our local SBDC as if they were our business partners!”
