Success Stories

Booster Juice - Mission, BC

The Mission Booster Juice started strong when it first opened in 2008, but declining revenue was probably a key reason the original owners decided to sell. In 2012 Kim Gibson bought the Mission Booster Juice and while she knew there would be some challenges to build the business back to where it would be profitable, there were a few surprises. Some of the equipment was worn and there were other repairs she didn't budget for. She had invested all her money in the purchase of the business and found she didn't have the cash flow to meet all the unanticipated expenses. Meeting with Community Futures Kim found a partner that understands the challenges of small business and could provide her with the financial support she needed to turn the business around.

"I would have had to close the doors without Community Futures," said Kim, "with the unexpected costs and the time to reorganize I had exhausted all my resources," said Kim.
