Every year we celebrate the organizations and individuals that have partnered with us to help grow our local economy. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host our Annual Meeting & Business Development Awards Ceremony. This year we celebrated the Award recipients at their place of business.
The Business Lending Project of the Year is awarded to a client that achieved success as a result of the HCDC SBA 504 lending program. This year, we celebrated Oasis Turf & Tree as the Business Lending Project of the Year due to their superior vision, green energy initiative, and outstanding execution. “We’ve seen excellent results from the team at Oasis in both revenue and job growth. Their dedication to the implementation of their vision is a true testament to their commitment to their dream” said HCDC President Patrick Longo. Founded in 1996, Oasis Turf & Tree has now grown to a team of 55 employees with a fleet of 48 vehicles that service over 13,000 customers throughout Cincinnati, Dayton, and Northern Kentucky. Their growth and projected growth required a new facility in order to accommodate their needs moving forward.
With the help of HCDC’s SBA 504 Lending Program, the company built a state-of-the-art net-zero energy facility in the heart of Loveland. This project has helped bring new income to their community. This project also significantly enhanced the company’s operations and improved the overall productivity of the Oasis team. Learn more about Oasis here.
