Henderson State University ASBTDC and Citizens Bank of Arkadelphia partnered to make Jody and Jeff Ray’s dream of owning a restaurant a reality.
In March of 2017, Jody and Jeff approached the HSU ASBTDC for assistance in purchasing Saddlebags Bar and Grill in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The HSU ASBTDC team assisted Jody and Jeff in putting together a detailed business plan and financial projections to be presented to Lori Ross at Citizens Bank.
With the financing provided by Citizens Bank of Arkadelphia for the purchase of Saddlebags Bar and Grill, Jody and Jeff were able to build upon the reputation of the restaurant by adding their own creative ideas to grow the business.
“Jody and Jeff are such humble and gracious people with great determination.” Lori Ross stated. “I am so happy that Citizens Bank and the HSU ASBTDC could work together to help Jody and Jeff accomplish their goals.”
