America is the land of opportunity and just about any business venture is possible because of the freedom we have here. Independence Day is a time to reflect on those who made endless opportunities possible so that we all have the chance to live our own American Dream. Small businesses are the backbone of America and we want to highlight some great success stories of real-life people out there currently living their dream.
In May of 2011, Cody Hinsz had a horrible experience with an appliance company leaving him determined to do better. He wanted to make the customer experience far more pleasant than what had happened to him and decided the best way to do that would be to start his own company.
Soon after, Cody opened Denver Washer Dryer so he could offer high quality, expertly refurbished appliances to residential customers. As with many new business owners, he funded the operation entirely out of his own pocket and personal savings. This was enough capital to get him started, but not to keep him going long-term.
Knowing he wanted to create and maintain a 5-star reputation, he began to look into other financing options to increase inventory and keep his business running smoothly and came across Lendio. Soon after, he found the funding he needed to maintain that high-quality care and was able to take his business to the next level.
