Sept. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- New York, NY — BoeFly, the premier online marketplace connecting lenders with business borrowers, announced today that Wild Birds Unlimited,  the original and largest backyard bird feeding and nature specialty retail franchise system, 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.

Wild Birds Unlimited is the leading nature retail franchise system for the freshest bird food, the highest quality bird feeders and bird feeding equipment on the market today.

“Our mission is to bring people and nature together and do it with excellence.   Like many franchisors, a big growth hurdle is getting our franchisees funded,” said Jim Carpenter, Founder, President and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited. “BoeFly allows us to help franchisees get the loans they need to open up new shops and fulfill the Wild Birds mission.”

“Today even top franchisors face a significant 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.”
