Aug. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- BoeFly, the premier online marketplace connecting lenders with business borrowers, announced today that Uno Brands, best known for the UNO Chicago Grill and its original deep dish pizza, has selected BoeFly to assist its franchisees in obtaining bank financing.

Nearly half (49.2%) of the respondents in a recent survey by the International Franchise Association (IFA) of its members identified “financing/access to credit” as the top issue of concern to franchise business leaders.    In response to this concern, and bolstered by its success in helping many individual franchisees obtain financing, BoeFly created a portfolio of services for the franchisor market.   Through BoeFly, they can offer their franchisees access to a network of lenders through the posting of a single loan request on BoeFly’s Internet-based loan exchange, assistance in creating an effective loan request, and support managing lender inquiries.   BoeFly uses proprietary matching technology to connect franchisees with lenders that their loan package meets specific lending criteria, increasing franchise revenue by helping franchisees connect with the capital they need to open their businesses.

Unos brands include, Uno Chicago Grill, Uno Due Go, and Uno Express.  Unos was named, America's #1 Healthiest Chain Restaurant, by Health Magazine, and named #4 of the 10 Best Family Restaurant Chains, by Parents Magazine.

“Uno Brands welcomes the partnership with BoeFly, and the potential for easier franchisee financing.  Making it easier for franchisees to obtain financing will accelerate the growth of the Pizzeria Uno system in the United States,” said Lou Miaritis, Senior Vice President of Purchasing and Franchising of Uno Brands.

“Today even top franchisors face a significant aukvi challenge – converting otherwise qualified franchisee candidates into ongoing, paying customers because of the difficulty they have accessing capital” said Mike Rozman, President of BoeFly.  “Franchise lending has been down by as much as 40% in the past two years due in part to the inefficiencies in the lending process that have been exposed by the financial crisis.   BoeFly eliminates these inefficiencies by connecting franchisees with banks that are ready and willing to lend.”
