When David Sanchez was interested in buying a building and opening a sign shop, he approached Sonora Bank and spoke with banker Tonya Brown. Tonya called Angelo State University Small Business Development Center and Rural Advisor Peggy Rosser for assistance. Peggy, Tonya and David met to discuss his business.

He planned to keep his current job at the auto parts store and run the sign shop after hours and on weekends. The bank funded his project, D’Z Signs and Vinyls. David bought his building and opened his business. 

With the increase in oil service companies and with companies buying out other companies, David found that he needed to dedicate full-time to the sign business. He quit his job at the auto parts store and now works full time in his sign business.

“I am glad Peggy comes to Sonora and was available to help me start and eventually expand my business,” David said. “I hope to even open a sign shop in San Angelo soon,” he continued.
The opening of D’Z Signs and Vinyls added one business and one job to the local economy of Sonora.
