A recent trend in franchise financing is for the franchisor to take a key role in finding, securing and even offering financing to franchisees in an effort to make funding more readily available. "In-house financing and custom lending solutions have without question helped to spur much-needed access to capital for qualified prospective franchisees of many brands," IFA President and CEO Steve Caldeira said. Some companies that have benefited from this trend include Hurricane Grill & Wings, Jersey Mike's Subs, Marco's Pizza and CiCi's Pizza.
