Atlanta Movie Tours got its start because Owner Carrie Sagel Burns wanted to show off all the great filming locations around Atlanta and beyond. Since its beginning five years ago, the business has expanded to showcase all the great filming that happens around the Metro area, and has a retail gift shop downtown. Not only has it grown from one tour a week to over 20 with 40,000 guests, the organization also has 1,200+ reviews on TripAdvisor. “With that growth came overhead and personnel, investment in the business and capital and funding became necessary at times,” said Carrie. Carrie has borrowed from IOU Financial a few times.
“The IOU capital has helped consolidate our existing loans and get our daily rate under control for greater growth this year,” explained Carrie. “It helps me sleep at night!”
According to Carrie, what makes IOU different from other lenders is the commitment to excellent customer service, particularly the communication and online portal. “I’ve worked with other small business loan companies and spoke with a few others and know that there are plenty out there who you can’t reach for questions, don’t have a way to check your status, etc,” said the small business owner.
“With IOU, you know you can always talk to someone. Plus, the online dashboard is a great way to keep an eye on the account without having to contact IOU directly.”
Here at IOU Financial, we can’t wait to see how Atlanta Movie Tours grows even further in the future. Looking for something fun to do in Atlanta? Check them out! Click here to book a tour: http://atlantamovietours.com We’ve got our eye on The Walking Dead options.
