Ripples Swim School, Loan #2

How Do You Grow a Business in Rhode Island?

Just add water!

In August 2019, Ripples Swim School is opening a second location in West Warwick, RI. Their original swim school is located on Gooding Avenue in Bristol, RI. The business did so well in Bristol, the owners decided to meet the market demands and open a second facility.

With the help of a #SBA504 loan, put together by Buck Harris and Greg Gould at Webster Bank, Ripples owners John and Beth Heelan are now able to bring their unique and fun swim instruction program to another thriving community in the Ocean State!

The 504 loan program enables the purchase of real estate, and in this case, the complete remodeling of the former warehouse building to suit the swim school’s needs.

Congrats to the Heelans! We wish them continued success and happiness.
