Boost your Franchise Network Growth

Take your network growth to the next level
with CFI's Franchise Incubator Programme​

Looking to give your growing franchise network an edge over the competition?

The best known franchise networks already know the secret. Access to capital is the key driver for system growth. 

Partnering with an experienced franchise financier can provide the capital your franchisees need! And with CFI’s Franchise Incubator programme, we’ve made it easier than ever for emerging franchise networks to accelerate their growth.


What is CFI's Franchise Incubator?

Put simply it’s the first step towards full franchise accreditation and the streamlined access to funding that is provides.

How does it work?

Our accreditation is a deep dive into understanding the franchise networks we fund. Our Franchise Incubator can be thought of as ‘accreditation light’ with understanding that an emerging franchise network may not have all of the data that we would normally require for a full accreditation.

What's are the benefits for the franchisor?

Just like a full accreditation, we try to understand as much as we can about your business and the types of franchisees you’re looking to attract so we can best support you.

Franchises in our incubator programme:

  • Reduce the work involved in obtaining finance for their  new and existing franchisees
  • Receive feedback and support from CFI Franchise Finance Specialists on industry trends, application quality, benchmarks and more.
  • Benefit from marketing support around using and obtaining finance.
  • Roll smoothly into full CFI Finance accreditation once they meet our qualifying criteria.
