South Side Business Boom Continues into 2018

It's been a big year for San Antonio's South Side.

San Antonio, TX - January 3, 2018

SAN ANTONIO - The South Side business boom continues, and one lending institution has the numbers to prove it.

During the past year there's been an increase in new homes and businesses on the city's south side.

It's been a big year for San Antonio's South Side.

"Very big year, very excited," said Estrellita Garcia-Diaz with Jefferson Bank.

New homes, shops, and restaurants have all contributed to the overall business boom.

"You know there's tremendous growth down here now with the feasibility of the land compared to the North Side and all," businessowner John Chaney said.

Last year News 4 San Antonio talked with owners of Baird Foundation Repair.

After 40-years the family-owned business broke ground to expand from its old location; and Jefferson Bank on Goliad Road helped.

Chaney said, "They helped us tremendously in getting this project off the ground every step of the way and through construction."

Bank lenders also helped other entrepreneurs get started with small business loans.

"End of 2016 we did about $3-million dollars in commercial lending out of this location, 2017 we're looking at a number of about $10-million dollars," Garcia-Diaz said.

Jefferson Bank is just one of several lenders helping business owners on the South Side.

"We try to make a concerted effort to help them achieve whatever their goals are."

Growth on the South Side shows no sign of slowing down.

Traffic from each business old or new lends to the success of neighboring businesses.

"There is a lot more traffic and it adds to people seeing you, visibility it's a lot more than what it was," Chaney said.

Leaders with Jefferson Bank hope to increase the number of their business loans this year.

However, they encourage anyone interested to looking into all options and programs available.
