Chase, which serves four million American small businesses, today launched a new advertising campaign featuring three clients who use financing from Chase to help them thrive. In 2013, Chase extended $19 billion in new credit to American small businesses, and the firm is a leading provider of SBA loans and lines of credit.

“Every small business owner has their own success story, and Chase is thrilled to help our newest Mission Main Street clients tell theirs,” said Scott Geller, CEO of Chase Business Banking. “These business owners exemplify the passion and focus our bankers experience working with our clients around the country.”

The multi-media campaign includes print and radio advertising that will run in 10 markets across the United States, and a digital component with extended-length videos available nationwide. Chase bankers nominated hundreds of clients for participation in the campaign, which features these business growth stories:

Chateau Grand Traverse, Traverse City – The O’Keefe father and sons doubled their winemaking business in the past decade, expanding their winery, vineyards and inn along Michigan’s Old Mission Peninsula, where patriarch Edward started growing grapes 40 years ago.

The Love and Hummus Company, San Francisco -Donna Sky began her certified organic Mediterranean food company with a commitment to locally sourcing ingredients. She is on a mission to make the world a better place, one chickpea at a time.

Hernandez Companies, Phoenix – Started by their father with a single truck in 1975, siblings Denise and Chris Hernandez have expanded their licensed specialty and general contracting business to provide plumbing, electrical, carpentry, welding and painting services across the Valley of the Sun.

Earlier this month, Chase launched Mission Main Street Grants, a program that will award 20 grants of $150,000 to small businesses nationwide. Qualifying businesses that apply for a grant by October 3, 2014, will gain access to a marketing Toolkit and a $150 coupon toward one market research study with Google Consumer Surveys from Premier Sponsor, Google. In addition, the 20 grant recipients will receive a trip to Google for an exclusive small business marketing workshop, a Google Chromebook Laptop computer and a $2,000 coupon toward one market research study with Google Consumer Surveys.
