Skip Bennett is the owner and founder of Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury Bay, Massachusetts. He set out to grow the world’s finest oysters. Skip planted his first crop of oysters in 1992, and in 2000, began selling to local restaurants from the back of a pickup truck. Today, Skip sells over 100,000 oysters a week to restaurants across the country. When Skip needed a business line of credit, First Republic came out to Duxbury Bay to learn about the business firsthand. The Bank understood his needs then and looks forward to working with Skip and Island Creek Oysters as they continue to grow.
