SBA Loan.jpg

SBA Loan

Small Business Administration (SBA) loans are one of the most popular ways to finance your franchise purchase. These loans are backed by the federal government and have helped thousands of small businesses across America get started. The SBA partners with local banks, which love helping locals get financed. Because you are purchasing a franchise with an established history, there is inherently less risk, so banks are usually eager to lend you a helping hand. That being said, the federal government has implemented strict qualification standards, so expect a longer-than-normal lending process with this franchise financing option.

Partners or Investors

A good number of small business start-ups here in the U.S. are started with multiple owners and/or investors. By pooling your money with the money of other partners and/or angel investors, the initial cost of owning a franchise can seem not so overwhelming. It also offers less risk, which many potential business owners are attracted to. One of the only drawbacks to investing with others is that you'll be splitting your profits with others.

Franchisor Financing

Many franchise brands will offer their own in-house financing or partner with other partner lending institutions. This is usually a great way to get financing because their partner lending institutions are intimately familiar with the franchise, so the paperwork on your end is usually cut in half. Some will even offer equipment financing, effectively making this financing turnkey. This makes the loan process faster, so you can be on your way to franchise ownership quite quickly. Plus, the payback terms are usually quite generous, so you can focus on getting your business going without having to worry about a monstrous debt payment hanging over your head.

Commercial Bank Loan.jpg

Commercial Bank Loan

A commercial bank loan is a traditional loan from a lending institution, such as a bank or a credit union. Traditionally, these are one of the hardest types of loans to qualify for because of the amount of risk involved for the bank. Expect a lengthy application process that is quite thorough. The lending institution will most likely want to review your business plan, as well as your personal credit.

Personal Loan

A personal loan is much like a commercial bank loan except you are putting your personal credit (and assets) on the line. You have to have good credit to receive a personal unsecured loan, and you have to be willing to risk your ability to borrow for your own needs in the future. However, this can be a great way to raise franchise funding quickly, and your credit score may even improve, too.

Alternative Lenders.jpg

Alternative Lenders

Alternative lenders have exploded in recent years, taking advantage of the slow process and the headaches caused by traditional lenders and loans. Alternative lenders usually have less strict requirements, and many promises quick turnaround times. This can be a great franchise financing option. In addition, many offer a variety of different types of loans to meet your individual needs. Do be aware you pay a bit more for alternative loans in exchange for all of these benefits. However, if you cannot qualify in any other way, alternative loans are worth considering for your franchise financing.



Crowdfunding has become a popular way to raise money for your business start-up. Here, you simply set up a page on a crowdfunding site, and solicit donations from your friends, family, work colleagues, and even strangers. Do your research because some crowdfunding websites support specific industries and businesses, which could be beneficial to your franchise financing.
