$22,000 small business loan
Polished Spa, which opened in August 2013, is operated by Joseph Platia, Jr. Polished Spa offers nail services, wax treatments, make-up services and photography services. The business sets itself apart by pampering customers with unique services such as a chocolate overload pedicure and a vanilla caramel crumb pedi scrub. By combining fine desserts and drinks with tradition spa services, Polished Spa treats their clients to a special experience.
With help from The Rising Tide Community Loan Fund, Joseph was able to add new product lines, increase his marketing efforts and update his property.
