SAND DOLLAR TOWING
OLIVIA & JIM BRANDON
Sand Dollar Towing -- Jim and Olivia Brandon always wanted to start a small business of their own and knew that one day they would open a towing business. In 2007, Olivia attended a seminar hosted by the Del Mar College Small Business Development Center to learn more about starting a business and getting set up with the state. Although the Brandons didn’t pursue starting a business at that time, a few years later, in March 2010, they decided to move forward with their dream of starting their own towing business and came to the Del Mar College SBDC for assistance.
Mr. & Mrs. Brandon met with Jamey Jones, a business counselor with the Del Mar College SBDC, for startup assistance and help putting together a loan proposal to purchase a tow truck and start their business. Olivia and Jim, with over eight years of experience in the towing industry, had done their research and came to the SBDC well prepared and well organized.
After Jones assisted Jim and Olivia with putting together a business plan and loan proposal, they presented it to American Bank and were approved for a loan.
On March 26, 2010, Jim and Olivia Brandon’s dream of owning their own towing service became a reality when they opened the doors to Sand Dollar Towing. For your towing needs, contact Jim or Olivia Brandon at (361) 888-9000.
