Shawn Pelletier

Owner, Evergreen Lanes Featuring The Rendezvous Restaurant
Aroostook County, Maine

"I build and create things that are going to support ALL businesses. Economic development is an important part of any community. We've been with Katahdin Trust for over thirty years. They've always supported me and all my ideas - they encourage me to do more! It makes me feel good to know that they have that confidence in me, and makes me want to work harder. They care about you, they care about your business, and they want you to be successful."

Matthew Polstein

President, Ktaadn Resorts
Penobscot County, Maine

"Our growth here has helped the Katahdin region reevaluate the role that tourism and recreation can play in our economic future, and the support of Katahdin Trust has been really helpful in driving our growth. Katahdin Trust was willing to take the time to get to know us. They demonstrated a real willingness to make investments with businesses that are well-positioned to help this region grow."

Dr. Kelton Cullenberg, PT, DPT

Owner, Steady State Health
Cumberland County, Maine

"Once I knew that what I wanted to do was very niche-specific, I knew there was probably only one way that I could do that and it was by creating my own job. It was an obvious connection to work with someone whom I could reach out to if I needed anything and be responded to immediately. You don't get that level of service with a lot of larger companies. We want to help as many people as possible. Katahdin Trust has been helping us do that."

Miranda Bragan

Legacy Ranch and Event Center
Mars Hill, Maine

"Working with Joe has been unbelievably extremely easy. It was just a conversation like you were going to meet up with an old family friend! He was great to work with. He was understanding and he was great at communicating.

I would absolutely recommend anyone to go to Katahdin Trust to get any type of loan. I feel like they want local businesses and their local communities to succeed."
