ID: ED20160902
Inner City Economic Development Loan
County Comission District: 11 | City Council District: 3


April House Premier and related companies is owned and operated by Ms. Paulette Sanford, a professional caterer since 1996. April House Premier applied for assistance to help with façade work, HVAC improvements, and landscaping along with plumbing and electrical upgrades to the 3,400 SF building located in Southeast Memphis*.

Ms. Sanford is dedicated to providing healthy food that is convenient. She operates Top Tier Catering, The Southern Deli and a hotel/restaurant cook apprenticeship program. The apprenticeship program has three enrollees through a partnership with the Workforce Investment Network. The loan will help Ms. Sanford retain four jobs and hire four additional staff for catered events.

Previously, Ms. Sanford was approved for ICED loan funding through the EDGE Finance Committee. However, because of a traffic accident, the project was placed on hold for several months. Due to the down time, she was forced to change locations and the previous EDGE approval was terminated.
