Eleven percent of all SBA guaranteed loans are to a franchisee.
There are major opportunities for lenders in the franchise finance niche.
These loans earn good yields. And statistics show they are less risky than “mom-and-pop” loans.
Franchise loans are easily scalable. Once you have approved a concept, approved the franchisor, the next loan is easier to underwrite.
However, they need to be analyzed differently then your other Main Street loans.
Our expert professional instructor, Charles Green will discuss these differences. Along with a look at the current small business lending environment (regulatory, economically, and SBA) toward franchise operations.
He will point out important differences in franchise financing you need to know — how to evaluate management, how to evaluate operations, and most importantly, how to evaluate the franchisor.
You will learn:
• Special emphasis will be placed on free tools available to the lender to underwrite the franchisor.
• Making sure you are taking full advantage of SBA’s Franchise Registry
• How to read the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
Information you must address in your credit report that comes from the FDD
• Hidden tips to determine a franchisor worthiness
• Underwriting the franchisee’s business plan
• Underwriting the franchisee’s projections
• The differences between franchisee underwriting, and “mom and pop” underwriting
• Factors about franchise loans that should be addressed in your credit policy.
• Must have information available to the lender from the franchisor, just for the asking
