Ed and La’Toya Mayberry came to the UTPB-Small Business Development Center in November 2018. They owned a daycare since 2010 that was operating from their home. They wanted to expand into a larger facility in Midland and grow their business. The client worked with the SBDC consultant to develop a business plan narrative and financial projections. They were able to identify an investor and a suitable building in Midland on Wall Street. They opened the location in September 2019. In October 2021 they expanded into a second location and their business continues to grow. Toya’s Precious Jewels now has 24 employees. Both owners are very active in their community and the business has a significant social media presence.
