If you’re expanding your franchise business to a second or more locations or starting out a new franchise business, you may be weighing up your financing options.
With all the finance companies for franchises out there, deciding on the right option to finance the commercial equipment for your start-up or expanding franchise business can be confusing.
At Cashflow It® we aim to take the confusion and the hassle out of your asset financing. We do this through our simple and fast application process, transparent contract, manageable payments, excellent customer service and solutions to suit your needs.
Instead of purchasing the equipment you need outright at the start and using up valuable capital which may be needed at a later stage to promote or expand the business, get franchise equipment funding through us.
Types of Finance Companies
Before deciding on the best equipment financing option for you, it’s a good idea to know what types of equipment leasing companies are out there and the options available to you.
The 2 main types of finance are debt finance and equity finance.
- Equity finance is money sourced internally by the business.
- Debt finance is simply funding provided from an external source such as a bank or credit union.
Examples of equity finance include offering family and friend’s partnerships in exchange for funding, private investors, venture capitalists who typically require a controlling share of the business, crowdfunding for the more innovative businesses and government funding for business expansion.
If you are a start-up franchise business who cannot obtain government funding, or don’t have the backing of private investors, don’t have an idea innovative enough for crowdfunding and don’t want to give away a controlling share of your business, there is another option available – debt finance.
Finance companies offering debt finance include, retailers, suppliers, banks and equipment finance companies such as Cashflow It®.
Franchise business owners starting a new business or expanding to a second or more locations probably won’t want to give up portions of their business or pay interest to investors down the line. It can also become problematic when investors want to have a say in the running of the business.
The benefit of debt financing is that as long as you are making your payments on time, financiers won’t get involved in the running of your business.
Also financing aspects of your business, for example the commercial equipment needed, allows you to free up your capital to spend on running and promoting the business, perhaps even expanding sooner than you expected.
Why Choose Commercial Equipment Financing?
Ultimately the biggest benefit of finance companies such as Cashflow It®, is that we can fund your commercial equipment, which would otherwise require a large cash payment to purchase outright.
We have rental, leasing and business loan solutions available to suit your requirements, whether you need just one piece of equipment financed or an entire store fit-out of equipment or store refurbishment. For example, as one the best commercial kitchen funding finance companies, we can completely equip and fit out your commercial kitchen with all financing options and get your franchise up and running.
