Great Clips Franchisee Secures SBA Loan to Open Salon
BoeFly connects a Dallas, TX borrower with a Texas bank for a start-up loan to open a Great Clips salon
“Thanks to BoeFly, I was able to obtain the loan I needed to open my first Great Clips location,” said new franchisee Mohammed Azam of Dallas, TX. “Now that the salon is open, I am glad to provide jobs for the staff and stylists, and to offer our clients great service.”
When Azam submitted his loan request to BoeFly, he posted 23 supporting documents, and the Great Clips brand presented six supporting documents. Eight lenders, including the Texas bank that funded his loan, requested to view his loan package.
Azam used BoeFly at the recommendation of Great Clips, which has selected BoeFly to assist its franchisees in obtaining bank financing.
“It is always exciting for us to hear about the opening of a new Great Clips salon, and for Mohammed Azam, this was made possible with the financing he received through BoeFly,” said Steve Overholser, CFO of Great Clips. “The Great Clips brand will continue its active commitment to supporting franchisees in all areas, including the key area of finance.”
“It is nice to work with a franchise system like Great Clips that supports franchisees throughout the entire process, including financing,” said Mike Rozman, Co-president of BoeFly. “Great Clips pointed Azam to BoeFly, where he was guided through building a bank-ready financing request and was matched with eight interested lenders. We look forward to our continuing to work with Great Clips in helping to support its franchisees.”
