The OnDeck Team at El Camion

“I really liked the online process – it was very quick and easy. With my upgrades, El Camion is on track to have its best fall season yet.”

It was inspiring to hear these words from recent customer David Duran from El Camion Cantina when we visited last week, continuing our tradition of supporting local businesses (like Dirty Bird To-Go and Waterfront Wines).

Amidst sampling the margaritas and fish tacos, we stole a few moments of the very busy owner David Duran’s time to ask about his experience as a New York City restaurant owner. After spending three years building his brand and clientele, David needed to upgrade his kitchen equipment and install a new air conditioning unit – without disrupting cash flow. After a few less-than-pleasant experiences with other lenders, a colleague recommended OnDeck.

After visiting our website, David was intrigued by how quickly he could receive financing. He needed to complete the project before fall classes resumed at NYU and SVA – college students make up a significant portion of his customer base – but didn’t have time for a lengthy process. After our brief application process and a few conversations with his Loan Specialist, David had an approval and the funds he needed.


We wish David and the El Camion Team the best of luck! If you’re New York City-based, be sure to check out El Camion.
