-Starr Morgan

Morgan Williams & Associates, Inc., Minneapolis

"Dale Lewis and her staff have been wonderful to work with over the last seven years. They have always gone out of their way to make our banking relationship work smoothly. If we call with any type of question, they do their best to answer it right away or call us back the same day. Dale and her employees are our customers, also."

-Bill Blume

Co-owner of Minnesota Surplus & Outfitters, Inc.

"We had never owned a business before and we didn't have a lot of money to invest. Instead of insisting on a big down payment and lots of documentation, Park State Bank showed us how to jump through all the hoops to get an SBA loan and put together a business plan. We're now the biggest tow truck company in Duluth, and none of this would have been possible without Dale Lewis of Park State Bank."

-Darin Lind

President of Duke's Towing

"Park State Bank has come through every time in putting together the loan packages we need in a fairly capital-intensive business. Through the efforts of the staff at Park State Bank, the Duluth Timber Company was able to finance industrial real estate and establish a line of credit for raw materials, equipment and capital improvements."

-Max Taubert

Owner and President of Duluth Timber Company

"We came to Park State Bank after our 20 year banking relationship changed with the installation of new ownership. We truly value our relationship with Park State Bank because of the face to face interaction, knowledgeable advice, and mutual respect of the staff. They offer the same technology as a large bank, but with better service and a better understanding of our small business."

-Chris Rodgers

Owner of Lyon's Pub, Minneapolis

"The Center for Economic Development has worked with clients that have been referred by Park State Bank for many years. The bank uses direct loans, SBA-backed loans and its Designated Investment Fund to help small businesses in our community. The bank also has been willing to join with other lenders to create affordable financing packages to help companies grow and expand."

-Elaine Hansen

Executive Director, UMD Center for Economic Development

"Dale Lewis jumped through hoops to get us a merchant credit card account within our first six months of business – that's almost unheard of in the fraud-ridden mail-order business. The ability to take credit card orders early on was crucial to our success. Two years later, Park State Bank's Designated Investment Fund provided the financing that allowed New Moon to grow and operate more efficiently."
