Linda Toffolon Risks All to Relocate

| 4/21/2017

Linda Toffolon was already looking to relocate her 1950s-era diner when the shoe dropped: the tenant with whom she shared her current site planned to close his doors. Now, Daytona Diner needed a new location fast, with parking, access to city services and a family-friendly feel. Toffolon turned to the Florida SBDC at Daytona State College for aid in crafting a site selection plan. She found the “right site,” but it would need work and she would need money. Van Canada, commercial-banker-turned-Florida SBDC-consultant, helped her complete a loan application and secure the necessary funds. “I risked everything to relocate and re-open Daytona Diner,” says Toffolon, “but Van and the Florida SBDC were there for me. They made what seemed impossible possible.”
