BoeFly currently works with over 100 franchise brands that have signed up with the service to assist their franchisees with obtaining financing, and the platform has helped franchisees across the United States connect with lenders and secure financing. BoeFly also recently entered a strategic alliance with the IFA to expand credit access among franchisors and franchisees.
“Today even top franchisors face a significant challenge in accessing capital, and as a moderator at the Franchise Finance Conference this year, I look forward to discussing how franchisors can provide added financing support for their franchisees, as well as how franchisees can better position themselves to secure financing,” said Rozman. “BoeFly serves as an effective resource to address this key issue by connecting franchises with banks that are ready and willing to lend, and eliminating the inefficiencies in the lending process that have frustrated so many franchise owners in recent years.”
Franchise Times’ annual Franchise Finance Conference is a unique business forum that gives franchise owners, franchise executives and key personnel, and franchise lenders and investors an inside look at the current lending and investment environment for franchised businesses. The conference will provide an in-depth analysis of the franchise financing marketplace, and franchise attendees will be introduced to a variety of successful franchisee financing strategies and acquire the necessary tools to confidently access capital for their franchise systems.
“With credit being such a significant challenge in the franchise segment, it is important for those in the franchise community to stay informed about the financing marketplace, and the Franchise Finance Conference is designed as an open forum for that purpose,” said Mary Jo Larson, Publisher and Vice President of Franchise Times. “With expertise from speakers like Mike Rozman, we think franchise attendees will learn a great deal about the current financing environment and how to most effectively access credit.”
Additionally, Kevin Ellis, recipient of BoeFly’s 2011 Lender of the Year Award, will be presented with the award during the conference on March 7th. Along with Rozman, Ellis will be featured as an expert panelist at the conference. BoeFly’s Lender of the Year Award recognizes lenders who exemplify qualities of the Ideal BoeFly Lender, including innovation, responsiveness, diligence, serving clients’ needs, embracing technology and executing well.
