Franchise Accreditation Benefits

Hydraulink are just one of many franchises accredited with CFI. See how their franchisees benefit...

Dylan had been working as a Hydraulink franchisee for five years when the opportunity to acquire his own territory arose. With CFI’s help Dylan quickly went from employee, to mobile franchisee, to employing staff in his own workshop.

Car Service Hoist

Franchise network growth made easy

Dylan was a qualified fitter already working in the Hydraulink network. Franchisors know that their existing network is the perfect breeding ground for new franchisees.

Hydraulink are a leading manufacturer of hose and fittings, with over 400 service points throughout Australia and New Zealand. They’re also one of more than a hundred franchise groups that are accredited with CFI finance, giving their franchisees (and potential franchisees) streamlined access to funding.

Fast Facts

Business Loans from CFI Finance helped Richard to:

  • Buy stock, and fit-out a custom mobile workshop when first starting out as a franchisee
  • Go from employee to business owner
  • Expand from mobile mechanic into bricks-and-mortar-premises to meet increased demand.

The Scenario

Dylan was a quilified fitter working in the franchise network when the opportunity arose to purchase his own territory. He had some funds to put towards the puchase but needed to keep most of his cash aside for working capital. A few years after buying his territory Dylan was looking to expand with business premises that would allow him to carry bulkier stock and provide a greater range of services to his customers.

The Positives

  • Dylan was qualified to work hands-on in the business and had experience in the franchise network.
  • Hydraulink is an accredited franchise network with CFI, ensuring CFI could offer streamlined access to funds and less hoops to jump through.
  • When Dylan came back for funds to expand his business, his history with CFI and strong performance as a franchisor made it easy to approve a second loan.

The Challenges

  • Dylan didn’t own property, and would be seen by many financiers as a poor bet simply because he didn’t have any business trading history. For CFI Finance however these things didn’t count against Dylan.

The Result

CFI Finance provided Dyaln with his first loan in 2019 to help finance stock and fit-out of his mobile workshop van. When Dylan came back looking to expand his business into fixed premises the process couldn’t have been simpler.
