Meet Edith

As president of FRANdata, Edith brings with her a unique perspective on franchise financing. Her organization stands on the crossroads between lenders and franchisors, with one team dedicated to helping banks smartly grow their franchise portfolios and another committed to assisting franchisors in streamlining their financing process. Under her leadership, banks that control nearly two trillion in assets now rely on FRANdata’s proprietary franchise credit scoring model (called the FUND score) to consistently evaluate a franchise system’s creditworthiness. The FRANdata run Franchise Registry counts more than 600 of the most credit-worthy franchisors in the United States as members. Verified franchise registry members provide more transparency to lenders to help their franchisees obtain financing.

Meet Paul
Paul Santomauro advises some of the largest franchise lenders on industry best practices in underwriting and business development. Paul is FRANdata’s resident expert working with institutional subscribers who use the Franchise Registry and assists C-level executives in crafting credit policies for emerging and mature brands.
