Capital Planning & Execution
The team at Catalyst works with management teams to develop strategic bank relationships (“SBRs”) for the brand. An SBR is a collaborative effort between lender and franchisor to set up a predictable model for franchise financing. Specifically created for start-up and expanding franchisees, the program is limited to franchise systems with measured performance and experience within their market segment. SBR financing can also be used for debt restructuring and brand reimaging campaigns.
An SBR provides the following advantages to a brand:
Validation of the Brand by a Financial Institution
Availability of Capital to Finance Expansion and Renovation
Predictability of Access to Capital
Direct Access to Bank Decision Makers
Availability of Better Financing Terms
Increased Working Capital for Franchisees
Availability of Capital for All Credit Profiles
Preferential Treatment of Franchisee Applicants
Reduced Time to Apply for and Obtain Financing
Positive Public Relations and Marketing Message
