3 Franchise Financing Options to Power Your Business Ownership Dream
Top 3 Franchise Financing Options for Business Ownership
- Working Capital Loan: A working capital loan is a term loan that is paid back in regular, fixed installments (typically monthly). Unlike a conventional bank loan, you do not need good credit or collateral, and neither a past discharged bankruptcy or currently open tax lien are usually deal-breakers. Terms usually range from 1-5 years, although most franchisees opt for a longer payback period in order to make their installment payments easier to afford.
- Equipment Financing or Leasing: Getting your franchise off the ground typically means purchasing equipment — and that is where equipment financing or leasing enters the picture. Similar to working capital loans, terms usually range from 1-5 years. It is also important to note that some lenders oblige you to purchase or lease your equipment from a limited pool of vendors. Be assured this is NOT something we do here at National Business Capital & Services. We empower our clients, instead of restrict them!
- Business Line of Credit: A business line of credit gives you instant access to a significant amount of funds to cover unexpected, short-term costs. You are only charged interest on the amount you borrow, and if the line is revolving (as is the case with our offering), then the amount you pay back is immediately available for future borrowing. This is especially helpful considering that most franchises require franchisees to maintain minimum stock and staffing levels at all times.
