“When we decided to expand and open a second store, Sharon and I wanted the process of seeking an expansion loan to be as efficient as possible, and Papa Murphy’s was very helpful in positioning BoeFly as a resource that helped us connect with a bank and secure the financing we needed,” said Mark Slaughenhoupt. “We look forward to opening our second location and bringing quality take-and-bake pizzas to our customers.”
When the Slaughenhoupts submitted their pizza franchise loan (http://www.boefly.com/
The Slaughenhoupts used BoeFly at the recommendation of Papa Murphy’s, which has selected the platform to assist its franchisees in obtaining bank financing.
“At Papa Murphy’s, supporting our franchisees in major areas such as financing is as much of a priority as providing fresh, high-quality take-and-bake pizzas for our customers,” said Dick Larsen, vice president of development at Papa Murphy’s. “We are dedicated to guaranteeing that our franchisees have the tools they need to operate their stores and to expand, and BoeFly has proven to be a very worthwhile tool in helping the Slaughenhoupts secure the loan they needed to open a second location.”
“It is great to work with a franchise system like Papa Murphy’s that supports franchisees throughout the process from the ground up,” said Mike Rozman, co-president of BoeFly. “Papa Murphy’s pointed the Slaughenhoupts to BoeFly, where they were guided through building a bank-ready financing request, which was matched with a bank in their area. We look forward to our continued work with brands such as Papa Murphy’s in helping to support their franchisees.”
