Utah Barbershop is OnDeck’s Small Business of the Month
Blues Barbershop of Salt Lake City, Utah is OnDeck's Small Business of the Month for June 2019. Owned by Jerone Wedig, the music themed barbershop is the first small business in Utah to receive the OnDeck award.
Back in 1997, while still in his early twenties, Jerone Wedig opened the original Blues Barbershop in Seattle, Washington with a vision of restoring the tradition of the barbershop serving as a neighborhood gathering place. After marrying wife Christi and relocating the business several times, the duo settled in Salt Lake City in 2013 with a unique shop full of skilled barbers and blues music.
The Wedigs first sought out financing from OnDeck in 2014 to hire additional staff in Salt Lake City. After that successful expansion, the couple recently obtained additional financing with OnDeck as they begin the process of expanding their Nashville location.
To date, OnDeck has provided more than $100 million in online financing to the small businesses of Utah.
