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.
