A new salon will be a great economic boost for Lutz

Lutz, Florida - The Pasco Economic Development Council is making big strides with a new opportunity for employment and customer experience! A nostalgic salon, featuring a blow dry bar and an old time hot lather shave and cut by a licensed barber.

The salon is a family owned business called Element 54.

In addition to a great addition to the community as a great full service salon, it also impacts the local economy. The business was approved for a microloan program. Edward Spenceley, Senior Vice President, Bank of America, and Chair of Pasco EDC's Growth Task Force says that, "a key to the program is that it offers loan recipients guidance and technical assistance along with the financing."  The Growth Task Force created the microloan program.

Over the last year Pasco EDC has given a total of nine loans to small businesses generating a total of 23 new jobs. Companies who need help obtaining non-traditional financing and are headquartered in Pasco County, or planning to locate in Pasco County, should consider applying for a microloan through Pasco EDC. Borrowers must show they have the experience and resources to be successful business operators. Visit www.pascoedc.com for more information on how to apply.

National Small Business Week is June 17 -21, 2013, and is celebrated each year to recognize the critical contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create almost two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. It is a startling statistic which holds true in Pasco County, and a key reason Pasco EDC created the microloan program to help entrepreneurs.

Element 54 is located at 21776 State Road 54 in Lutz, Element 54 is the ninth small business to benefit from the.
