Shill and Monty Won were anxious to leave the big city of New York and start a new career. After spending 27 years with Citibank, Mrs. Won was anxious to move to Savannah and open her own small business. Mr. Won moved ahead of his family so he could locate suitable housing and employment. He began working with a seafood wholesaler who informed Mr. Won that his business did not reach the full market. As such, there was opportunity for someone to open a seafood market on the other side of town to fill a void in the marketplace.

Mr. Won had made contacts within the industry and learned much about seafood and the Savannah marketplace. After a period of time, Mr. Won felt the timing was right to make the move and open his own business.

Mrs. Won moved to Savannah shortly thereafter, and together, they found a building for sale on Martin Luther King, Blvd. Pooling their resources, Mr. and Mrs. Won approached the SBAC for help in completing the financing needed to purchase the building, renovate it and open the store. The SBAC was able to use the City of Savannah Revolving Loan Fund to provide the capital needed to complete the project and open the doors. Thus bringing a much-desired business to an inner-city neighborhood.
