“Since the beginning of 2016 we have seen lender activity more than double on the Franchise Registry” says Darrell Johnson, CEO of FRANdata, “There was a 100% increase in lender participation on the Franchise Registry site and we have added hundreds of new lender members since the beginning of this year alone. Credit availability is encouraging, and the franchise industry is continuing to facilitate the expansion of small businesses nationwide. The FUND score and report helps lenders determine whether more confidence is needed in the borrower as opposed to the franchise system when considering loan terms.”

“With the growth in popularity of franchise lending comes the need for better understanding and underwriting of franchise brands” says Bob Coleman, Editor of the Coleman Report. “FRANdata is able to fill the gap within the lending community for consistent, accurate, and reliable credit scoring of a franchise company. I am excited to bring such a solution to my lender subscribers”

The FUND report scores brands on 12 specific franchise performance metrics all derived from publicly available information. FUND scores range from 100 to as high as 900 on a scale of 950 points. FUND reports are available to lenders in the Franchise Registry, and is available at:
