Welcome to a fresh new approach to franchise finance


Connect your franchisees with a new source of capital

ApplePie Capital helps accelerate the growth of your brand with fast and efficient financing for both existing franchisees and new operators. We provide a new source of non-traditional capital that is more flexible and forward-thinking than traditional bank financing.

We provide loans starting at $100k to:

  • Open new units
  • Acquire existing units
  • Remodel existing units
  • Refinance existing debt
  • Recapitalize performing units

ApplePie Guided Growth™

Growth planning for you and your franchisees

The number one issue impacting franchisee expansion is access to liquidity. Most franchisees aren't equipped with the expertise to properly value and leverage their personal and business equity, and pledge too much to secure their first or second location.

ApplePie Guided Growth™ creates liquidity for your franchisees and provides them with a growth plan that supports your desired development schedule.

Our experienced franchise finance team works with each of your franchisees to develop a custom financial roadmap that maximizes the liquidity essential to open units on schedule, with multi-unit commitments that provide certainty of funding throughout their rollout. We then provide you with feedback so you can more effectively predict your brand’s growth.

Step 1
Get your brand approved for ApplePie Guided Growth™

Connect with us to qualify your brand, and we then tailor a growth program that fits your model and pace of development.

Step 2
Refer multi-unit franchisees to the program

Share details of the program with franchisees who are key to your growth in the coming years.

Step 3
Custom financing plans and capital for your franchisees

We work with franchisees to understand their goals and create a funding plan for their entire rollout with fast, efficient, and flexible capital.

Step 4
Get actionable insights into your development schedule

Understand whether your franchisees’ access to growth capital is collectively aligned with your brand’s projections.

Why Franchisors ApplePie

You likely have financing partners for SBA and 401(k) loans. But many franchisors are finding ApplePie to be an appealing alternative to add to their preferred partner list. If we can't finance your franchisees, we will work to find capital for them through our referral partner network.

Franchise Industry Focus

We lend exclusively to franchise businesses, and understand the unique challenges franchisors and franchisees face.

Speed & Efficiency

We prequalify your franchisees quickly and provide funding in 30 days or less with simple documentation requirements.

New Operators Welcome

For qualified brands, we can quickly provide financing for first-time operators to open new units.

“ApplePie Capital is a great alternative. They quickly funded my first location, and created a financial plan for my multi-unit rollout. And the loan provided financial flexibility that an SBA simply didn't offer. I’ve finally found a strategic financing partner.”
