BoeFly connects Tipton, Iowa multiunit franchisees of Hardee’s with St. Cloud, Minn. bank for a loan to refinance and remodel their restaurants
TIPTON, Iowa - April 16, 2013 - PRLog -- BoeFly, the premier online marketplace connecting small business borrowers with lenders and a strategic ally of the International Franchise Association (IFA) to expand credit access within the franchise community, announced today that Alexander and Julie Tischuk, husband-and-wife franchisees of three Hardee’s locations in Iowa, secured a $1,600,000 loan from Stearns Bank in St. Cloud, Minn. to refinance and remodel the restaurants through a connection made by BoeFly.

“As multiunit Hardee’s franchisees, Julie and I needed to secure a large loan amount to refinance and remodel our restaurants, and BoeFly turned out to be the most efficient solution for us,” said Alexander Tischuk. “The platform allowed us to connect with multiple banks throughout the country, and ultimately helped us secure a loan from a bank in a different state that we would not have connected with otherwise."

After evaluating several financing requests from BoeFly, the Tischuks decided to connect with David Kahlhamer, SBA operations supervisor at Stearns Bank in St. Cloud, Minn., who has successfully used BoeFly to originate loans in the past.

“The Tischuks were great to work with and provided the necessary documentation to Stearns Bank N.A. that was needed to provide funding for this complex loan package," said Kahlhammer. “BoeFly has proven to be an effective resource for Stearns Bank N.A., and we will continue to use the platform to originate small business and franchise loans.”

The Tischuks used BoeFly at the recommendation of Hardee’s, which is one of more than 125 franchisors that have selected the platform to assist franchisees in obtaining bank financing.

“We understand how critical access to capital is for our franchisees, and that is why we have chosen BoeFly as a key resource to assist them with the process of obtaining financing,” said Jim Sullivan, SVP of Franchising for Hardees and Carl's Jr. “We are thrilled to know that the service helped the Tischuks secure the loan necessary to refinance and remodel their Hardee’s restaurants, and are confident in the BoeFly platform and the future success it could bring to our franchisees.”

Mike Rozman, BoeFly’s co-president, views this success story as an example of a practical solution to the widespread issue of small business credit access in the U.S.

“The Tischuks’ story is common, as many small business owners nationwide are challenged in these tight times to acquire the capital their businesses need to thrive,” said Rozman. “Fortunately, BoeFly has helped them efficiently secure competitive financing to grow their businesses, and we always are proud to work with qualified borrowers and resourceful lenders like David Kahlhamer to help drive small business growth and job creation.”
