GulfCoast Business Finance, Inc. is dedicated to promoting and assisting in the growth and development of small businesses. We have been servicing Florida and the continental United States for over 25 years. We are proud to offer these testimonials from our wonderful and very successful borrowers:


GulfCoast Business Finance worked closely with us and our lender to facilitate our second Small Business Administration loan which we used to build The Grand Beauty Spa.  Without their support and attractive rates we would not have been able to launch what has become the number one destination spa in Tampa.  The Grand Beauty Spa.  We also worked with GulfCoast Business Finance 12 years ago on our first Salon in Tampa -  Posh.  We have paid off the SBA loan for Posh which we originally used to rennovate our facility on Bay to Bay Blvd. in Tampa.  We appreciate the working relationship we have had with GulfCoast Business Finance and all they have done to help us grow our businesses. 
Steve Sargeant, Vice President of The Grand Beauty Spa

I would not be the proud and happy owner of the Windemere Inn By The Sea Bed and Breakfast in beautiful Indialantic, FL if it were not for the support, both professional and certainly financial, of GulfCoast Business Finance. I have two thirds of my mortgage with a traditional bank, and one third with GBF and I have found this to be an excellent working situation for Windemere. I purchased the Inn in May 2004. We were serverely damaged by the Hurricanes of 2004 and the Inn was not fully re-opened until March of 2005. Because I had a plan and presented it to GBF it was agreed that I could defer my mortgage payments for the months that it required to resume an income. We would never have been able to get through our repairs and opened if we had been strapped with a mortgage payment during that period. Words can not express my gratitude for the confidence that GBF has placed in me to operate my business.
Beth G. Fisher, Owner/Innkeeper of Windemere Inn By The Sea Bed and Breakfast

GulfCoast Business Finance has done an amazing job at helping us to realize a dream, of owning our own daycare center. While the process of purchasing a small business can be a daunting task, the GulfCoast staff  stepped in to make the process as efficient as possible. GulfCoast has a program that has proven itself worthy of my continued support and loyalty.
Pete and Jackie Lang, Owners of Imagination Station Day Care


If your company demands integrity, professionalism, and quality of service then Gulf Coast Business Finance, Inc. is your best choice. I have worked with the team at GBF for more than 7 years and they are the very best in the industry.

In 2001, just prior to September 11, we were happy to find a suitable building into which we could expand and relocate our automotive parts distribution business.  However, the seller was in bankruptcy, and the building required renovation including asbestos and petroleum storage tank cleanup and remediation.  It took perseverance and creating thinking to find us a low cost, long term solution to finance the move.  GulfCoast Business Finance matched us with the SBA 504 loan program, and the result is we bought the building, remodeled it, and moved in 8 months later.  
John Cannon, Vice President Florida Automotive Distributing, Inc.

The 504 program allowed us to buy our building from our landlord which we would not have been able to do without a hefty deposit which we did not have. We might not have been able to stay where we are and been as successful because our building would have been sold to someone else.
Matt Sperber, Owner of Consignment Furniture Showroom


Two years ago I purchased a restaurant and property with the help of my bank and the Small Business Administration (SBA). I never thought it could be accomplished because of all the paperwork that had to be filled out. I was overwhelmed with it all, but with the help of those kind, learned people of the SBA, they walked me through it. Today, a single mother of two with no business degree owns a million dollar piece of property. This would not have been possible without GulfCoast Business Finance's help and this includes every single one of them who guided me. Never took time to thank them. Thank you SBA.
Carol Bates, Owner of Dockside Dave's Grill


GulfCoast Business was very supportive and responsive while we were obtaining our loan. The organization dealt with a high level of integrity as well as professionalism as we experienced some challenges. We truly thank them for helping us with having our dream of owning our business in child care. Thanks for making it happen!
Marina and Bill Schmidt, Owners of Kiddie Academy of Lakewood Ranch


If it were not for your office (GulfCoast Business Finance) and the SBA 504 and 7a loan programs my business could not have grown from 1 location to 5 locations and from 10 employees to 72 employees. Our success has been tied directly to our ability to receive four SBA loans during these last few years. We are and will continue to be successful!
