Is Your Franchise Accreditation Up To Date?

Funding is the lifeblood of the franchise sector, fuelling expansion, innovation, and success. However, navigating the labyrinth of financial institutions can be a daunting task for both franchisors and franchisees alike. Enter CFI Finance, where accreditation opens doors to streamlined funding solutions tailored for the unique needs of franchised businesses.

Keeping your accreditation up to date can offer significant benefits to your existing and potential franchisees. It can also mean streamlined access to higher funding amounts!

Every year we refresh our accreditation information for franchise networks, often increasing the amounts we’ll lend to reflect the increasing costs associated with things like fitouts and equipment. Keeping your accreditation up to date can offer significant benefits to your existing franchisees, but even more so when it comes to driving network growth.

Why Get Accredited With CFI?

1. Grow Your Network Faster

Access to funding is often the bottleneck hindering network growth. By partnering with CFI, franchisors can supercharge their expansion initiatives. Accredited brands enjoy unparalleled approval rates and a suite of services designed to drive network growth.

2. Maintain Onboarding Momentum

In the fast-paced world of franchising, time is of the essence. Waiting months for traditional lenders’ approvals can stifle momentum and jeopardise deals. CFI’s swift approval process, often within 48 hours, keeps the onboarding process moving forward smoothly, ensuring both franchisors and franchisees stay motivated and engaged.

3. Remove Barriers For Refurbishments

Keeping franchise locations fresh and modern is essential for maintaining brand consistency and appeal. However, refurbishment financing can be challenging to secure. CFI specialises in refurbishment finance, offering manageable weekly payment plans that alleviate the burden on franchisees and ensure brand standards are upheld.

4. Increase Multi-site Franchisees

Many franchisees aspire to expand their footprint, but traditional lenders may not always share their vision. CFI takes a different approach, assessing applications based on commercial merit rather than solely relying on residential real estate. This approach empowers existing franchisees to pursue multi-site ownership and fuel network expansion.

5. Painless Equipment Rollouts

Introducing new equipment or technology across a franchise network can encounter resistance from franchisees. CFI streamlines the process with blanket approval criteria and simple documentation, breaking down upfront costs into affordable weekly payments that facilitate widespread adoption.
