Financing Eligibility Service
Gain control over your franchise system’s credit perception
The Financing Eligibility Subscription improves your franchise financing program. The service is a complete franchise financing support solution that guides, communicates, and supports all your franchise financing efforts.
Franchise financing has changed a lot since the financial crisis. Loan margin compression and new non-bank competitors are forcing lenders to make better credit decisions. To make small business franchise lending more profitable, lenders are now using significantly enhanced credit tools to efficiently and quickly help them assess creditworthiness. In light of this current environment, we have enhanced our financing eligibility subscription (and the Franchise Registry) to give franchisors visibility into the franchise credit assessment tools that lenders are using to assess a brand’s fundability. As part of the subscription, we show the franchisor the tools and actual analysis from which lenders are making credit decisions about a franchise system.
The result will be a good understanding of the degree of control they have over their franchise system’s fundability.
State of Lending Practices Today:
Lenders are making decisions that affect your franchise system based on information you have never seen. This information is used as a representation of your franchise system whether it is a true depiction or not of your creditworthiness.
- To make small business franchise lending more profitable, lenders are now using significantly enhanced credit tools to quickly assess creditworthiness.
- To help you gain control, we have enhanced our financing eligibility service on the Franchise Registry to give you visibility into the franchise credit assessment tools that lenders are using to assess you.
