Honeycomb Credit unlocks growth opportunities for small businesses to build vibrant, financially empowered communities.

It all started with a community bank and a juice shop.

As a sixth-generation community banker, George grew up in Western Pennsylvania and saw firsthand how the disappearance of community banks was limiting small business owners from getting the loans they needed to make their businesses thrive. In Kansas City, Ken was struggling to get capital for his juice shop, despite his finance background. George and Ken put their heads together—and Honeycomb Credit was born.

Today, we're a team of small business owners, finance nerds, bloggers, and food enthusiasts. What connects our diverse interests are a shared passion for community and a strong belief in the power of Main Street.

What We Believe

Honesty, integrity, and transparency

That's how we treat each other and our customers.

Move fast but fix things

We can act swiftly and make the right call.

We're dedicated to your business

Your small business story is a story worth telling.

Community building is a team sport

Leave it better than you found it

Do good and things will turn to gold.
