4 Ways To Finance Your Franchise

Franchising can be an easy way to break into owning a business as it’s an established, proven system and name that most are familiar with. You can also sidestep common mistakes that most start-ups encounter as the franchisor has already perfected their system. They’ve already figured out the secret sauce to what works best, from daily operations to marketing. If you’re wondering how to finance your first franchise, you’re in the right place! Let us share a few options that can set you up for success, but first, what exactly is franchising?

Definition of Franchising?

Franchising is when you, as a franchisor, buy the rights of an existing, thriving business from the owner of the franchisor. When purchasing a franchise, you’ll incur a franchise fee and an ongoing royalty fee in return for using the brand, logo, ongoing support from the franchisor, and their proven system.

Financing Options

Alternative Financing

Here at Barrington Commercial Capital, we offer franchise financing solutions to help you get the cash you need to purchase your franchise or improve it. We can structure a loan that fits your needs with a fast pre-approval qualification process. Our loan program offers rates as low as 6%, and we offer up to 90% LTV. We can also help you get extra cash for working capital!

SBA Loans

An SBA loan can be an effective way to obtain the funds needed for a franchise. Loan rates are typically competitive with market rates. An advantage of working with the Barrington Commercial Capital team is that your application is constructed in such a way to grant approval faster than traditional channels.

Friends And Family Loan

Another way to jumpstart a new business is to borrow the capital you need from family and friends. However, this method is highly discouraged by business professionals as it has the potential to compromise relationships. If you decide to move forward, make sure both parties have a solid agreement and clear terms for repayment.

Personal Assets

Assets can be a great source of cash if you’re looking for a low-risk way to fund your franchise. Some people use their personal savings or sell valuables such as a home, car, or jewelry that can be turned into cash. The caveat to this option is the availability of assets and the value they can bring to fund your business.
