Financing

Financing options for your franchise business are plentiful, from local banks to the franchisor to the growing number of alternative lenders. Financing sources also include SBA loans, 401(k) conversions, and angel investors for both new and growing franchisees. Enterprise franchise organizations can look to mezzanine financing and private equity investors.

Both require careful and accurate budgeting, not only for the business itself, but also on the personal side, as most start-up businesses stretch household budgets at the outset and usually play a key role in keeping individuals and families afloat.
