Food service establishments can be great business for SBA lenders—but beware: Winter is coming for the restaurant industry. While most restaurants are doing well today, a cyclical downturn could hit restaurateurs—and their lenders—at any time. Subway restaurants, America’s most ubiquitous food service chain, just shut down 359 locations in 2016—the first time Subway ever had a net reduction. Why?

To give you the answer—as well as prepare you for disruptions that are simmering beneath the surface in this business segment—this Coleman webinar gives your underwriting staff new criteria for accurately assessing restaurant loan risk.

The good news is, restaurants are the number one NAICS code for SBA lenders. The bad news is, restaurants make for notoriously risky loans—even during good times.

Today the industry faces upheaval due to a confluence of six disruptive influences that could easily turn imprudent loans into disasters: Robotics, escalating minimum wages, zombie malls, immigration policy, food delivery services and social media. This webinar helps underwriters understand how these critical factors affect risk—as well as how astute lenders can minimize and mitigate them.

Coleman Report editor and publisher Bob Coleman has been following, writing about and advising SBA lenders on the volatile restaurant business for nearly ten years. He will review all prudent due-diligence efforts necessary to protect your loan and guaranty, as well as enable the entire SBA lending team to feel secure.

Here are some of the valuable skills your SBA underwriting team will learn for protecting your restaurant loans:
  • Where we are in the restaurant financing cycle
  • How to tighten your credit box standards, and what the standards should be
  • Common qualities and behaviors of successful start-up restaurants
  • How macro-economic trends will impact restaurant cash flow
  • Social media sites you should visit on every restaurant loan.
  • The important metrics in operating a restaurant, including off-financial statements numbers
  • Issues your underwriters must address in the credit memo regarding the franchisor
  • Traps with alternative lending options to your borrower
  • “Institutional” Restaurant Financing Knowledge from the Experts
  • Tips to accurately calculate a restaurant’s cash flow
