Aaron Osborne, Owner at Shake’s Frozen Custard

“Big Think Capital helped us bridge the gap in funding our business during our off-peak season when cash flow is tight.” 

Shake’s Frozen Custard has been in business since 1991. They are a premium dessert and treat company, specializing in classic sundaes or concretes. Anyone who has visited the shop in Fayetteville, Arkansas marvels over the premium frozen custard blended together with toppings, resulting in delicious ice cream. Being in the ice cream business, Shake’s has a highly seasonal revenue stream. Most of their sales happen in the warm weather… although ice cream may even be tastier in the winter!

“Unlike other lenders, Brett took the time to understand our cash flow, even with the seasonality being such a major factor.  He was very quick to communicate with us and kept us informed throughout the process.  It was evident we were not just a case file to Brett, but an actual customer!  It felt like we were doing business with a hyper-local bank that placed value in our relationship.

“Aaron was very comprehensive and allowed me to fully understand Shake’s to meet the needs of the business. Aaron was very responsive and explained to me in detail why his revenue varies due to seasonality. With their peak season approaching, it was a perfect situation for Shake’s to seek working capital. We were able to complete the entire funding process in less than 3 hours.”
