“A good customer of ours mentioned Beaver River CFDC to us, as we were talking about wanting to add onto our shop, having a separate retail section and having the main shop as a drive in from the front and exit from the back of the shop. We started our business in 1996 and we basically outgrew our current shop. Beaver River CFDC has been such great help. Very positive. They are willing to see you when you do not have an appointment. We appreciate what they have done helping us expand our business. We would recommend to others for sure.” - Randy & Kathy Kindel, Owners of Beauval Marine & Small Engine
