Franchise business loans present attractive opportunities for investors. The asset class provides stable fixed income return potential, and franchises entail less risk than other small businesses. Franchises benefit from proven business models and receive support from the franchisor in areas such as location selection, training, operations, and marketing.
In addition, franchises are a powerful engine for economic growth and jobs in the US. In 2015, the franchise industry is projected to account for over half a trillion dollars in GDP, and 8.8 million jobs. We believe that by delivering a new source of capital to franchise businesses, investors can accelerate entrepreneurship and make a real economic impact in local communities.
