The following is co-sponsored by Southern Bancorp.
The staff at both Henderson State University ASBTDC and Southern Bancorp are dedicated to serving local small businesses. Together, the HSU ASBTDC and Southern Bancorp work to assist small business owners with their business planning and financial needs.
While the HSU ASBTDC and Southern Bancorp offer valuable assistance to individuals looking to start small businesses, the organizations are also very committed to helping existing businesses with growth and expansion.
In one specific instance, the HSU ASBTDC and Southern Bancorp worked together to help long-time local business owner, Bobby Younger, with completing renovations for his Hamburger Barn location.
Hamburger Barn has been an Arkadelphia favorite since 1993. The restaurant offers a variety of American-style foods including delicious burgers, steaks and chicken entrees. The restaurant also offers a variety of Tex-Mex menu items.
In 2014, the HSU ASBTDC and Southern Bancorp assisted Younger with business planning and financing in order to complete renovations for the restaurant. The remodel included a variety of updates to the historic building including the addition of an outdoor dining patio.
The teams at both the HSU ASBTDC and Southern Bancorp are honored to have had the opportunity to assist Younger with his renovation plans, and both organizations look forward to continuing their services to potential and existing small business owners.
