Aby’s Custom Upholstery Secures SBA 504 Financing to Buy a Building in San Jose

Aby’s Custom Upholstery has plenty of room to grow in their new, 2,704 square foot building at 545 Horning St. in San Jose, CA, thanks in part to an SBA 504 loan from Capital Access Group.

Aby’s Custom Upholstery has been in business since 2003 serving residential and commercial customers in Los Gatos, Los Altos, Saratoga, and throughout the Peninsula and South Bay, and receiving more than one hundred 5-star reviews on Yelp.com. CEO Abigail (Aby) Figueroa has been sole owner of the business since 2012.

Aby said that being able to have a location and a bigger space is “amazing” because she will be able to have space for an assistant with ample room to grow. “Now we’ll have two offices, a conference room, a showroom, a waiting area, and my employees are going to have a break room, which is very neat,” she said.

“Giving my employees a place that is safe and secure is important. Being able to secure my company’s location is everything,” said Aby Figueroa, CEO, Aby’s Custom Upholstery. The new building will allow the business to add three more people to its current roster of six employees.

Claudia Cohen from Capital Access Group “made the process very doable,” Aby said. “I wear a lot of hats, so there’s only so much I can do in a day. Claudia worked with me through the loan process and made things simple and to the point, which was important because you feel very vulnerable, especially when you’re buying something for the first time. Capital Access Group was on our side the whole way through.”
