South Carolina Business Review logo

There is no doubt that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic will affect how we do business for weeks and maybe even months ahead.  And as in any economic crisis, the government is expected to provide relief to the small business community because they normally suffer the most from this type of event.

Mike Switzer interviews Gregg White, director of the South Carolina district of the US Small Business Administration in Columbia, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
