With assistance from the Fresno State SBDC, Alexander and Jason Martin opened for business in Hanford on July 17, 2015. The Martins combined personal investment of $10,000 with a $50,000 loan from the Fresno CDFI to open the first location and plan to open a second shop in Porterville. They hired six employees and plan to expand to a total of fifteen people between the two locations.
