Financing Your Franchise



4. Other Financing

Customers as a source of funds
In some types of industries, suppliers of goods and services may be interested in offering you financial help so that you can purchase more of their products or services. Part of the deal would be that you purchase only their products which effectively can mean a higher cost to you because of the absence of competition.


Small Business Investment Funds
There are organisations throughout the USA that would provide funding for people who are in a start up mode or their business has already been running but need to grow.


Franchises
When buying a franchise, the franchisor (owner of the franchise) may be able to loan money by leaving in an amount over a period of time as part of the cost of the franchise. You would then make repayments in the normal way until that loan is settled.
