ApplePie Capital: The Right Choice to Meet Your Multi-Unit Growth Goals
When it comes to multi-unit expansion, access to the right capital, at the right time can be a game-changer in ensuring success. Having funded over $1.2 billion in loans across 200+ brands since 2015, ApplePie Capital is a strategic capital markets partner that deeply understands franchising and the unique needs of franchisees at every stage of growth.
“When someone comes to us, the first thing we want to know is what their plans are for growth, and for succession or exit,” says Ron Feldman, ApplePie’s Chief Development Officer. “Your exit plan – how long you want to run these units – can affect what kind of loan you get.”
ApplePie’s teams are brand specialists. Armed with well-defined goals and a snapshot of your financial picture and operations, ApplePie takes a consultative approach to create and execute a custom multi-unit financing strategy that ensures development stays on track.
The key to smart multi-unit expansion is to match growth plans with the right capital solutions. “The biggest problem we see with franchisees in the early stages is not using the proper balance of equity and debt to efficiently meet their capital and operational abilities,” notes Feldman. “Often, a franchisee will use too much cash or too little cash to fund expansion. They borrow too much or they don’t borrow enough.”
ApplePie’s signature loan product, ApplePie Core, is designed specifically to accelerate multi-unit franchise growth at earlier stages than traditional franchise lenders will allow.
ApplePie also offers a full host of SBA, conventional, and equipment loan options from its diverse lender network. Their simplified, fully online application process enables borrowers to access multiple loan options and fast and efficient funding with just a single application.
No matter your strategy, franchisees should avoid getting hung up on interest rates. The interest rate you pay is a lot less important than your monthly payment and the term of the loan, Feldman says.
“The cheapest capital is generally not the best capital,” emphasizes Feldman. “You want the most flexible capital while you are growing; once you’ve grown you look at the cheapest capital options.”
What should a capital markets partner do for you? Similar to a CPA or attorney, a capital markets partner should be a trusted advisor that:
- Knows your brand and specializes in the industry.
- Provides customized financing options that meet your specific needs.
- Focuses on your long-term goals and ensures you have the capital available when you need it most.
“We want to take you from the first unit to your end place – whether that is 10, 20 or 50 units,” says Feldman. “Whatever that number is, we will hold your hand along the way to make sure you are optimizing the capital to meet your personal objectives.
