Hymark Investments Ltd.

Mitzie Mytz
Boyle, Alberta


"I would like to start off by thanking Community Futures Tawatinaw Region for providing excellent services provided free of charge and management of my account.  As you already know, I was faced with some large difficulties with my business over the last 3-4 years.  I originally came to Community Futures to apply for company financing as I had been rejected by the bank I held my corporate accounts with.  I appreciate the fact you took the time to discuss options and met with me for training.  Until that point in time, I had never learned how to do a business plan, cash flow projection and many other useful business tools for success.   These services from Community Futures were free of charge to my business and I would have not been able to receive such training at the time otherwise.  As a result of my training, I did produce an excellent business plan and receive company financing to proceed with business plans. 

My company is called Hymark Investments Ltd which currently has 3 different divisions.  Lakeside Storage and Xcalibre Paintball were established in 2006 and received financing from Community Futures within the last 2 years.  Due to the nature of the paintball park being seasonal (summer 6 months), there became alot of initial “re-opening” costs each year with the revenue being received in later months.  Without the help of Community Futures financing, I would not have been able to complete projects necessary in spring months (i.e.: gravel for Storage Compound, paintball inventory, etc..).  This allowed the company to meet customer demands and perform maintenance of the facility according to schedule.  Since this time, I have seen positive changes in many aspects of the business while making larger debt repayments in later month with increased revenue.  The 3rd division of the company was established January, 2014 with the help of Community Futures, called Hymark Pilot Services.  With the purchase of new truck/equipment and offering new services, it has been proven to be a great success within the first 6 months.  With this addition moving forward in 2014, it is expected to increase annual revenue to the highest point in the existence of the company since 2006.  My company & staff strive to succeed but we could not have followed through with business plans in such an efficient and professional manner without the advisement and financial aid from Community Futures.  We highly recommend your services to other business owners and potential new start up companies.

We look forward to doing business with you in the future!
