When Dallas entrepreneur John Paul Merritt first needed a banking partner to help him with a construction loan, he looked to Jeff Lisle at Vista Bank. Fast forward a few years and this serial entrepreneur brought Pony Oil, Jakes hamburgers and Floyds Barbershop to the metroplex, creating over 300 jobs. Then came COVID-19 where CARES Act relief was needed to keep his talented team on the payroll. Good thing he had Jeff’s cell phone number. That’s why John Paul keeps choosing the Entrepreneur’s Bank, and why we are honored to play a small part in his success!
