July 22, 2009 // Franchising.com // SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — GE Capital, Franchise Finance completed a $12 million loan to Tribox LLC for the purchase of 14 Jack in the Box units and to refinance some existing debt. Tribox currently owns and operates seven Jack in the Box franchise units in the Dallas area.
"We're happy to help Tribox grow and expand their reach in Dallas," says Dave Stansbery, vice president, GE Capital, Franchise Finance. "We are committed to helping restaurants grow by offering access to capital and providing flexible financing options."
