Southwest Franchise Lending Spotlight Conference in Houston Connecting Growing Franchise Brands with Lenders

BoeFly, the premier online marketplace connecting small business borrowers with lenders and a strategic ally of the International Franchise Association (IFA) today announced that its 2014 Texas Franchise Lending Spotlight Conference will take place on February 5 at the Westin Galleria in Houston, TX.

A recent survey of lenders across the country found that 97.6 percent of respondents think it is important for franchise brands to provide information to help banks evaluate financing requests from franchisees, which could in turn positively impact credit access for franchise business owners.

“Lenders who are well informed about a franchise brand are more likely to fund its franchisees, and we’ve developed this event in response to requests from franchise brands that are expanding in the Southwest and want to substantively educate bankers,” said Mike Rozman, co-president of BoeFly, the company producing the conference. “This is the fourth Franchise Lending Spotlight Conference to date and we look forward to continuing to bring this event to other markets across the country.”

The franchise brands presenting to lenders at the conference will include Bojangles’, Burger 21, Captain D’s, Del Taco, Firehouse Subs, Hurricane Grill and Wings, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Martinizing Dry Cleaning, McAlister’s Deli, Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake Pizza, and Planet Fitness.
