NEFA Announces: Panel Discussion November 18th, Marriott Hotel Quincy

Keys to Financing Success in the Current Economic Climate!

The financial lending crisis has reached Main Street and NEFA is planning a panel discussion for the next NEFA Meeting November 18th, 2008 at the Marriott Hotel in Quincy, to explore the ramifications of the crisis and how to obtains financing for franchisees and franchise systems.

In today’s economy one of the biggest concerns of a franchise system is how and where to get capital for franchisees to start their business or ways for franchisees to keep it running or to finance their growth.

This panel discussion is very valuable for each member of your finance and franchise development team as well as for existing franchisees, or prospective franchisees interested in expansion.

You will learn how banks and other lending organizations evaluate franchisee loan applications, and the types of funding that is available, even in these unsettled financial times.
