D1 training

At Suncoast, our members are always our top priority – including our business members! Over the past year, we’ve interviewed some of our business members to find out how they’ve built their small businesses with Suncoast as their financial partner. Here’s what they had to say:

D1 Fort Myers

D1 Training Facility is co-owned and co-operated by NFL player Tre Boston, offering its group fitness sessions to people of all ages and backgrounds with a focus on cultivating a community atmosphere. When we asked Tre about one of his favorite benefits of being a Suncoast member, he said “Suncoast, as a credit union, provides more for your community than banks usually do … two cents go to your community every time you swipe your card. That’s something that’s important … you want to have a credit union that’s going to love on the community as much as you.”

Street Gamez

Owned by family duo Tiffany-Autumn Bell and her 16-year-old son, Street Gamez is a mobile video game arcade focused on creating a unique entertainment experience for all its customers. To build their business, Tiffany-Autumn applied for a Micro Enterprise Loan through our national microlender partner, LiftFund. “You can request funding for your business … it basically helps you go through the process of getting funding to expand or start your business, and, in my case, they helped me expand my business, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity.”

Light Hand Tattoo & Healing Arts

Ananda, owner of Light Hand Tattoo & Healing Arts, has been tattooing for over 10 years and decided to start her business to embrace her “off-the-beaten-path” lifestyle and work ethic. She decided to start her business banking with Suncoast after finding satisfaction and a safety net during her journey as a personal banking member! Ananda considers it to be a privilege to be able to run a business by making art, and we consider it a privilege to be part of her journey.
