After years in the restaurant business and working for others, the time was ripe to embark on the next step in my entrepreneurial journey.
Murray Hill, New York (PRWEB) December 04, 2015
After years in small business, entrepreneur Piyush Prajapati decided it was time to upgrade from local delicatessens in Broad Channel and Howard Beach to larger cafés in Manhattan. With the help of Guidant Financial, he recently opened a Sertinos Café franchise at 550 Third Ave. in New York City, which offers organic coffee, fresh food, refined wine and cheese, free delivery and catering in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Motivated by the opportunity to grow and be independent, Prajapati began his search for the perfect business on which to focus his entrepreneurial energy. The Sertinos Café franchise offered a proven, existing business model with an upscale approach to casual dining. After months of preparation, he finally opened the doors to his first location in the heart of Murray Hill, welcoming neighborhood patrons.
Sertinos Café provides a warm and inviting atmosphere for customers to enjoy a custom-made sandwich, fresh soup or salad, or artisan coffee. Whether looking for a quick meal or satisfying snack or beverage, they promise quality ingredients, genuineness and speed of service, while encompassing the feel of a community café.
To finance the business, Prajapati tapped small business financing company Guidant Financial to help leverage his existing retirement funds using a process known as a rollover business start-up (ROBS). This funding vehicle allowed him to launch his start-up without incurring any tax penalties or taking on additional debt.
“After years in the restaurant business and working for others, the time was ripe to embark on the next step in my entrepreneurial journey. Guidant walked me through the rollover process every step of the way, was organized and informational, making a relatively complicated funding process seamless for me.”
Sertinos Café, located at 550 Third Ave. between 36th and 37th Streets, is now open. To learn more, call 212-683-6200 or email info(at)sertinosnyc(dot)com. The café is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and welcomes orders online via sertinosnyc.com.
