Dwight Partners with Chubbies to Provide D2C Line of Credit
Dwight Funding announced that it has provided a credit facility to Chubbies, Inc., an e-commerce apparel company. Proceeds from the facility will provide working capital to finance continuing and new growth opportunities.
Based in San Francisco, Chubbies was founded by four Stanford University graduates in 2011. Their unique line of shorts, swimsuits and shirts has grown increasingly popular amongst a wide variety of customers, including a strong following in the American armed forces.
Chubbies’ co-founder Kyle Hency stated,
“It’s imperative for a company at our stage to find a lending partner that can provide flexible, scalable capital, so management can comfortably and confidently focus on operations. Dwight Funding has given us this comfort and we are excited to have this partnership as we continue to grow.”
Jessica Bates, Director at Dwight Funding said,
“We are extremely excited to add Chubbies to our portfolio of growing consumer product brands. Chubbies has seen tremendous growth over the past five years through non-traditional channels such as university ambassadors and social media. We are thrilled to support this unique brand, backed by creative, enthusiastic and savvy entrepreneurs, as it catapults forward.”
