Progress Capital handles financing for New Jersey restaurant expansion

SEABRIGHT, NJ —It was just a year ago that the vacant Sea Bright post office building destroyed during Hurricane Sandy was transformed to Tommy’s Tavern + Tap, a rus- tic industrial style restaurant and bar. Since their opening, the crowds continue to flow no matter the season. Due to the popularity of this family friendly hot spot, an expansion will now commence, made possible with financing from Two River Community Bank, arranged by Progress Capital Advisors, both head- quartered in Tinton Falls, NJ. The expansion will include a much need parking area as well as completion of the sec- ond story level to accommodate private parties and events.

good time.” Rantanen, who conceived of and hosted the bowling event, is a life-long devotee to the sport of baseball. Both of his sons are active players in the League and lovers of the game. “When you see up close what dedication to a team sport does for your own kids, it really puts a different spin on things,” said Rantanen. “This game teaches perseverance, patience, and the long-term payoff of hard work. It teaches kids how to belong to a group while not being afraid to stand out, and how to really pull for another person to succeed. Lessons like that usually come along much later in life. That’s just one of the reasons why being a part of the League is about so much more than baseball.” n
