Business Startup Funds

Update posted by ortizaquatics On Dec 13, 2013

On December 4th, we made the decision to put the deposit on a 9,000 sq. ft. facility at 1502 2nd Street in Pen Argyl, PA. This facility has beautiful hardwood floors throughout, an office, a receiving area, and their its own full-size restrooms (yes, there are two). We are excited to begin building out our fish, coral, and invertebrate systems over the next few weeks. At this time, we are still in need of funds for use as working capital to help offset our first livestock and dry goods orders. We would greatly appreciate any aid that you all could give. Thank you all for your continued support!

Last night, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sam and Bryan of Trinity's Reef in Stroudsburg, PA. They are excited to hear about our plan to offer live foods (such as brine shrimp and rotifers) and manufactured LED lighting in our store when we open. So excited, in fact, that they are offering to sell our products in their store. In the next few weeks, you'll even be able to see some of our LED lighting in action over their new coral tank. This new partnership is helping to pave the way for Ortiz Aquatics being the premier Local Fish Store in the Poconos.

Currently, I have a location that I've been in talks with the property owner about in Stroudsburg, PA. The owner is willing to give us 2 months free rent for posting our deposit ($1375) and doing any upgrades to the space (remove carpets, install new flooring, paint walls, etc.) we need out-of-pocket.

Unfortunately, making that leap would leave us with little free funding to spend on bringing in quality livestock for a Grand Opening before Christmas. Your donation would help us make our store profitable as soon as we complete renovations on the space.

Thanks in advance for your help in getting us funded so we can become the #1 Local Fish Store in Northeastern PA!
