Honor Box Chiropractic Cracks the OnDeck Customer Spotlight Club
New York, N.Y., June 25, 2018 – – OnDeck® (NYSE: ONDK), the leader in online lending to small business, today announced that Honor Box Chiropractic of Pearl City, Hawaii is the OnDeck Small Business of the Month for June 2018. The chiropractic office, owned by Dr. Reed Shiraki, is the first business in Hawaii to earn the OnDeck customer spotlight award.
Dr. Shiraki opened Honor Box in 2013, after years of practice in Honolulu. The now thriving office is located on the north side of Pearl Harbor. Five years ago however, Honor Box was still a dream and Dr. Shiraki was coming up short on the financing required to make it happen.
“In 2013, I really wanted to move my practice to Pearl City and there was a perfect office space available there at the time,” Dr. Shiraki remembers. “I had a shoestring budget and the move, new lease agreement, and build-out costs were running close to $100,000. My savings, a business line of credit from my bank, and an SBA loan covered just over half of that. It was a tough moment. I didn’t have enough capital and I had exhausted what I thought were all financing options.”
Soon after, as Dr. Shiraki considered his dilemma, he noticed a piece of mail from OnDeck.
“I opened the letter and read the offer from OnDeck to apply for a business loan,” said Dr. Shiraki. “Figuring I had nothing to lose, I applied. And then, a miracle happened. I was stunned at how quickly I was approved for funding and even more shocked to see the money in my account within days.”
The OnDeck loan in 2013 helped to pay for the new Honor Box office in Pearl City. Once the practice was up and running, Dr. Shiraki encountered another dilemma, finding patients and having patients find him. Once again, he turned to OnDeck.
“OnDeck loans have helped me grow my business by funding advertising campaigns, hiring new staff and deploying custom chiropractic software to transform ourselves into a paperless office,” said Dr. Shiraki. “I have a great relationship with OnDeck. The speed and transparency of the loan process is amazing and the customer service team at OnDeck is top notch, always friendly and extremely professional.”
“For more than a decade, OnDeck has proudly stepped up to help deserving small business owners obtain the capital they need to live out their dreams,” said Andrea Gellert, chief revenue officer, OnDeck. “Dr. Shiraki is the embodiment of the customers we strive to serve. Our funding relationships with Honor Box Chiropractic and tens of thousands of other small businesses is what our entire company is singularly focused on.”
Today, Honor Box Chiropractic is one of the busiest chiropractic offices on the island of Oahu. And Dr. Shiraki has become a local celebrity through advertising and television appearances.
