Bliss Bridal Salon

When starting down the path to opening a small business in Fort Worth, we were directed to the Tarrant Small Business Development Center. We had the pleasure of working with Cle Royal during the process and as a reference source for the past few years. The insight and provided to us by Mr. Royal and the Tarrant SBDC has proved invaluable and significant to our growth as a business.

As new business owners back in 2007, we were unaware of the processes and requirements of the state and local governments regarding licenses, taxation and structure. The guidance and counseling received by the Tarrant SBDC helped us to make the right decisions initially, and has continued to benefit us as we have grown. In turn, this has enabled us to ensure we have made the necessary changes in our business profile to adjust for growth.

Through the sound advice that we received during our counseling sessions, our business has more than doubled in size from our initial venture into the bridal industry, allowing us to create and provide jobs to Fort Worth residents that otherwise would not have been available.

We value the help you have provided us over the years, and would highly recommend to any new business entrepreneurs that they take full advantage of all that the SBDC has to offer.

Tarrant SBDC is part of the North Texas SBDC Network, and
