Using Franchise Lending in Your Niche Product Mix

Historically, SBA guaranteed franchise loans perform better than non-franchise loans. But, as in any niche lending arena knowledge and information is key for a healthy portfolio.

To learn more about franchise financing, and six franchise concepts, consider attending this NADCO/Boefly/IFA sponsored event in Southern California on July 17th. (Another event will be held in Atlanta in the fall.)

To help you with your decision to attend, Boefly will honor the early bird registration of $199 if you mention the “Coleman Report.

Presenting brands are Goddard Schools, Firehouse Subs, Robek’s, Papa Murphy’s, Holiday Inn Express and Ice House America.

Other speakers include me!, Beth Solomon of NADCO, Mary Jo Larson of Franchise Times and Craig Everett of Pepperdine University.

If you can’t make the Southern California event, you may want to check out these regional summer SBA lending events.
