Franchisee financing
Be prepared with a business plan
Brad Bayless

There are more than 780,000 franchise establishments in the U.S. that support nearly 8.9 million direct jobs and $890 billion of economic output for the U.S. economy. Big business and growing.

Franchise businesses are expected to grow and create more jobs at a faster pace than the rest of the economy in 2015 for the fifth consecutive year, according to The Franchise Business Economic Outlook: 2015 by the International Franchise Association (IFA) Educational Foundation and IHS Economics.

And while this sector is growing and profiting, there is often one big roadblock to starting up and/or expanding a franchise – financing.

While some franchisors offer their own in-house financing programs, or have partnerships with a particular lending company, there are many situations where the parent company doesn’t offer financing or additional financing options may be required. The good news is there are opportunities available for franchisees that need to seek financing on their own and for situations where franchisors are willing to lend support their franchisees throughout the process.

Riding the wave into 2015
Create growth opportunities for your business
Brad Bayless

As we dive headfirst into Q1, we are likely to see companies investing in additional resources, whether that be people, equipment, software or infrastructure. It’s the time of year when change is ripe, and with confidence on the rise, we’re poised for increased opportunities for growth and change as the door swings open to 2015.

Privately held U.S. companies are entering the New Year with strong profitability and healthy sales growth, according to Sageworks, a financial information company. “Over the past twelve months, private companies are growing sales at an annual rate of 8.6 percent. Private U.S. firms are also seeing their highest net profit margins in three years, at 6.6 percent.”

With increased sales comes the need for additional resources to support growth, enhance employee productivity and improve operations so deal flow can continue.

According to Ernst & Young (EY Divestitures), the dynamics that made 2014 a record year for U.S. deal making will continue into the new year, pointing to ongoing buoyancy for the M&A market in 2015. This trend is likely to stay on course as 81 percent of executives expect the deal market to improve in the next 12 months, while 41 percent of U.S. companies have five or more deals in their pipeline versus just 8 percent of companies six months ago.

This is good news on all fronts and sets the stage for confidently marching into 2015. For companies who want to take advantage of the positive trend, are in a growth mode, in need of upgrading their capabilities from the previous year, or have been involved in recent mergers or acquisitions, a variety of financing opportunities exist.

Positive Economic Outlook

The metro Denver employment outlook for the second quarter is the 5th best in the nation, according to the latest regional employment survey, released March 13. Not only are companies across a variety of sectors making a significant investment in human capital, many are loosening the belt on expenses in other areas such as equipment and technology to enhance employee productivity.

Companies may seek to lease the equipment necessary for this growth and expansion, while conserving their working capital. As the economy trends upward and businesses are reinvigorated, the cycle for equipment replacement is underway with a variety of commercial financing options available.
