Brought to you by Benetrends Financial, a Preferred Vendor of the IFA.

Embarking on a franchise venture? Begin with the right financial strategy. It’s essential to investigate your funding options early to ensure you seize every opportunity. The ideal financing solution for your franchise should align with your individual requirements like timeline, risk tolerance, and credit history.

Comprehensive Funding Options Tailored for You

Benetrends Financial offers a spectrum of tailored funding solutions to support your franchise:

  • ROBS (Rollover for Business Startups): Use your retirement funds to finance your franchise without incurring penalties, taxes, or new debt. This method is also beneficial for meeting SBA capital requirements.
  • SBA Loans: Backed by a solid business plan, which Benetrends can expertly craft for you, SBA loans are designed to help new businesses flourish.
  • Conventional Loans: These are provided by banks and non-bank lenders, suitable for businesses with a robust credit standing, not guaranteed by governmental entities.
  • Securities Backed Line of Credit: Leverage your investment portfolio to gain flexible funding, akin to drawing from home equity.
  • Home Equity Loans: Though less common today, using home equity to fund your franchise remains a viable option.
  • Unsecured Loans: Obtain loans without collateral, depending on your credit profile and business needs.
  • Equipment Leasing: Equip your franchise with everything from office furniture to company vehicles, with potential ownership for a nominal fee at the lease’s end.
  • Fleet Financing: Specifically for acquiring vehicles, this option helps ensure your operational needs are met efficiently.

Navigating Your Funding Path

  • First-Time Owners: Stepping into franchising may seem challenging without extensive cash or experience, but a variety of funding solutions are available for those ready to take the plunge.
  • Multi-Unit Operators: The financing strategy for your initial unit can influence your ability to fund additional units. Strategic planning is key, especially with commitments such as a "three-pack" over several years.
