An Tobar Nua II: Scaling the Mission
Since the first An Tobar Nua case study was published in the Christian Business Academy Review in 2017, Kelly and Susan Curry have continued to build the brand within Galway, Ireland, by operating the café, baking their famous cookies, selling books, providing counseling services, and conducting student retreats.

Are they financially able to grow the business to the scale required to reach the whole country? What strategic financial choices can the Currys make to fund the growth needed to fulfill this new mission?
