Funding Options

You have questions? We have answers!

When should I think about funding my business?

Immediately! Funding is an important consideration in your franchise search! Just as you should not look at homes worth millions of dollars if you only want to spend $200,000, you should understand what your budget is for your new business to help you shop in the right “neighborhood”.

Do I really need financing?

To address this question, you should consider your available liquid assets relative to the full range of expenses that your new business will incur, including personal living expenses you will need to cover while the business is just starting up.

What types of funding can I access for franchise business ownership?

The most common sources of funding include:

  • Home Equity Loans
  • Unsecured Loans
  • SBA Loans
  • Small Business Line of Credit
  • 401K Participant Loans
  • Rollovers as Business Startups (R.O.B.S.)
  • Leasing
  • Cash

There are pros & cons for every option; we can provide you with financial consultants that specialize in franchise funding to help you decide what is best for you.

What do I need to disclose to qualify for funding?

The funding process has its own stages depending on type; early in the process you will only need to provide a small amount of information (name, contact information, approximate net worth and cash balance, and credit score) to get an estimate of the funding that may be available. This “pre-assessment” funding estimate is not a commitment and is subject to verification later in the application process, but it should provide a good basis for your initial franchise search.
