Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Restaurant Financing

What types of restaurants qualify for financing?

We proudly support a diverse array of dining establishments, from cafes and bistros to fine dining, fast casual, and franchise restaurants. To qualify for financing, restaurants should have been in operation for at least 2 years and demonstrate an average gross sales of at least $10,000 per month over the last business quarter. Our focus is on your restaurant’s operational history and financial health, ensuring that we can offer support tailored to your specific needs, regardless of the type of cuisine or restaurant format.

How quickly can I receive funding after applying?

Our streamlined process is designed for speed. Qualified applicants can receive funding as quickly as the same day, with most funding decisions made within 24 hours of application submission.

What can I use the financing for?

Our financing is designed for a wide range of business purposes to support your restaurant's growth and operational efficiency. This includes, but is not limited to, equipment upgrades, expansion projects, operational costs, marketing efforts, and buyouts. It's important to note that we do not monitor how you spend the funds. Our primary concern is that the financing supports your business activities. Once the loan is approved and funded, the specifics of expenditure are up to you — we trust you to invest in your restaurant's success. Just remember, while we won't be big-brothering your spending, we're always here to support your journey towards growth and success.

Do I need perfect credit to qualify for financing?

No, perfect credit is not a prerequisite for our financing solutions. In fact, we often approve applicants with personal FICO scores as low as 500. While creditworthiness plays a role in our review process, it's just one of several factors we consider. We also take into account your restaurant's business performance and cash flow. Our goal is to support a wide range of restaurant owners, including those who might have concerns about their credit. We understand that a number can't capture your restaurant's potential or your dedication to its success.

Are there any upfront costs or application fees?

No, we do not charge upfront costs or application fees. Our goal is to make financing as accessible and straightforward as possible for restaurant owners.

How does repayment work?

Repayment terms are tailored to align with the specific financing product you choose, with periods typically ranging from 12 to 60 months. Our aim is not just to provide immediate financial support but to also assist in building your business credit over time. By reporting to business credit agencies, such as Dun and Bradstreet, we help improve your credit profile. This strategic approach means that with each subsequent loan, you could be eligible for additional benefits. These benefits include no lender fees, extended repayment terms, and a reduction in the cost of funds. Our flexible repayment schedules are designed to complement your restaurant’s cash flow, making it easier to manage your finances while growing your business.

Can I apply for additional financing if I need more funds in the future?

Yes, we value long-term relationships with our clients. Once you've successfully repaid a portion of your initial financing and if your restaurant continues to meet our eligibility criteria, applying for additional financing is an option.

Is collateral required to secure restaurant financing?

It depends on the type of financing and the amount requested. Some financing options may require collateral, while others do not. We strive to offer unsecured financing options whenever possible to make the process easier for restaurant owners.

How do I start the application process?

Starting your application is simple. Visit our website and fill out the one-page online application form. The process takes just a few minutes, and you'll receive a decision swiftly.

Can I pay off my financing early, and are there any penalties for doing so?

Many of our financing options allow for early repayment without penalty. We encourage clients to discuss their specific financing agreement with their account manager to understand the terms regarding early repayment.
