Capitalizing a franchise company is not a one-approach-fits-all situation. Franchise owners have unique capital needs: sometimes they want access to the broadest market possible for the best loan at the most competitive rates, terms, and fees. Others want equity partners to help capitalize their business in new ways or to position for growth. In other instances, new buyers with operational expertise might need a debt or equity provider for acquisitions. Still more, an existing operator might be over-leveraged and in need of non-debt financing for remodeling or to initiate a partnership buyout. Finally, some owners may consider sale-leasebacks as a method of unlocking real estate value and placing it in remodeling, growth, debt reduction, etc.
Whatever the reason, Unbridled Capital has years of expertise in raising capital in all areas of the capital structure of a company; this includes debt placements, equity raises, family office or private equity investment, minority equity investment, mezzanine capital and sale-leasebacks (REITs and 1031s).
As the sophistication of franchise capital structures is on a steady increase, a meat-and-potatoes approach to capitalizing your business could be too narrow. Let the team at Unbridled learn more about your future needs and design a plan that benchmarks other successful franchise companies who have already laid the groundwork for you.
