Brown said with Small Business Administration loans, Ballreich has been able to double in size and has the ability to grow further. He also said the family's stake in the community was vital to their success. "When you see a company like this, they want the community to succeed. They're always looking for opportunities to grow," he said. "(The company has) got to be different than others, because it's working."
