Franchise financing is prime financing…the major banks fight over company’s who require franchise financing.  What you won’t know is which bank will provide the highest funding volumes requiring the least amount of equity capital (read your franchisor contracts, they have minimums) and which bank is lending at prime +.  Who would of thought that you can finance above the SBL gov’t grant rules but there are lenders that do that.   Do you know which one?  Do you know what it takes to qualify for franchise financing?  Any of the respected franchisor’s qualify a prospective franchisee as part of their initial interview process…don’t find out afterwards what you should have known in advance.  Get the funding you need, and trust a successful franchise financing advisor.
