Finance to buy an existing franchise

Buying an established franchise can be a great way to jump start your business, or to expand your existing network.
Some banks and finance companies may treat you like you bring all of the risks of a brand new venture, with no credit for the head-start you’re investing in.
At CFI we’re experts when it comes to franchise start-ups and acquisitions. Our team can help you make it happen.

Absolutely! CFI have helped thousands of people just like you to buy their first franchise. Our network of accredited brands and deep understanding of the franchise industry makes it easy to get finance even if you’ve never been in business before.
CFI works with eligible franchise networks to develop a deep understanding of their business. With this information we build a profile that helps us understand the particular needs of franchisees in that network.
This all means we can make the franchise finance process easier, often offering high maximum funding amounts and special rates for prospective and existing franchisees.
CFI are specialists when it comes to franchising, and a franchise network doesn’t need to be accredited with us in order to obtain funding.
If you’e a franchisor and you’d like to get accredited, you can check out our accreditation page here.
CFI can finance franchise fees for a number of our accredited brands and often for multi-unit franchisees looking to expand into new territories.
Yes you can. CFI are experts when it comes to funding business acquisitions. If you’re looking to buy an established franchise that’s great, we’d love to help.
Whilst banks can sometimes take weeks to make a decision, CFI can typically give you an answer within 24-48 hours. For our accredited brands it’s often as little as 4 hours!
Loan amounts vary by finance product and based on your specific circumstances. CFI typically lends amounts between $5,000 and $250,000 – but we can often lend more.
Some franchise brands will have an ‘accreditation amount’ which is an amount that we’ve set a benchmark for a particular franchise brand. It means we can make it easier (compared to non-accredited brands) to access up to this amount, but it doesn’t mean we’re limited to that amount or that we will always approve applicants for that particular amount.
*Excluding circumstances where a borrower has defaulted on a loan
Not at all. CFI provides finance to small and medium businesses across a range of industries. (It just happens that we’re very good at lending to franchises and we do a lot of it). If you’re not a franchise you can click here and access information that’s relevant for all business types.
