Jessica SarterPress Releases

The conference will give executives of franchise brands expanding in California the opportunity to educate a diverse group of local and national lenders about their brands and to help increase credit access for their franchisees

BoeFly, the premier online marketplace connecting small business borrowers with lenders and a strategic ally of the International Franchise Association (IFA) to expand credit access within the franchise community, today announced its 2013 California Franchise Lending Spotlight Conference on July 17 at the Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport.

The conference will provide executives of fast-growing franchise brands in the California market the opportunity to present their brands in front of a diverse group of community, regional and national lenders with the aim of facilitating lending to franchise business owners to help drive small business growth.

A recent survey BoeFly conducted 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 California and want to substantively educate bankers,” said Mike Rozman, co-president of BoeFly and host of the conference. “Our first Franchise Lending Spotlight Conference in Boston was very successful, and we look forward to continuing to bringing this event to other markets across the country.”

The franchise brands presenting to lenders at the conference will include the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), Robeks, Firehouse Subs, Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake Pizza, Ice House America and The Goddard School.
