CommunityAmerica does that every day with their members, employees, and their commitment to the community.” – Thalia Cherry, of Cherry Co.

 

Thalia Cherry first met with our CEO, Lisa Ginter, in 2020. It was the first time she was asked by anyone from a financial institution: “What are your goals and aspirations?" She knew from that moment on that she’d found her home and CommunityAmerica + Cherry Co. would become a match made in Kansas City.

Jose Luis got his start selling popsicles in Mexico before immigrating to the United States, where he started his family-owned ice cream business. He turned to CommunityAmerica for help in building a sustainable business, which led to the purchasing of a production facility and their first popsicle wrapping machine. Now, Palacana operates four company-owned stores across Kansas City and one partner-owned store in Wichita. This unbelievable team is built to thrive.
