Local Business Approved for Small Business Loan

Thursday January 26, 2012

A loan in the amount of $100,000 was approved by the Louisville Metropolitan Business Development Corporation. The loan was to FTC LLC d/b/a BBC Beer Co, at their manufacturing and distribution location at 636 E. Main Street.

The loan will help owner, Scott Roussell, purchase new tanks at the manufacturing site, in order to meet the increase in demand and help expand BBC’s business. This expansion will create nine full time and eight part time jobs. BBC Brewing was founded in 2002.

METCO also adopted its calendar of board meetings. Unless otherwise notified, they are held on the fourth Thursday of each month: February 23, March 22, April 26, May 24, June 28, July 26, August 23, September 27, and October 25. There will be a joint November-December meeting held on December 13.
