NEW YORK - Oct. 8, 2013 - PRLog -- FORT MYERS, Fla. – 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 Anthony and Alison Laccetti, husband-and-wife franchisees of the Fort Myers area’s first Jake’s Wayback Burgers restaurant, secured a start-up Small Business Administration (SBA) loan through a connection made by BoeFly.

Anthony Laccetti, a U.S. Air Force veteran, and Alison, who has 20 years of experience as an administrative assistant at major food companies, look forward to opening their Jake’s Wayback Burgers location. Once open, Anthony will work onsite as general manager of the restaurant.

“Becoming first-time business owners is an extremely exciting opportunity for me and Alison, but it hasn’t come without certain challenges,” Anthony Laccetti said. “Financing in particular was a hurdle we had to overcome to be able to open our Jake’s Wayback Burgers restaurant, and BoeFly offered a simple solution that allowed us to secure the right financing and move ahead quickly.”

The Laccettis’ loan request received interest from several lenders across the country, and after evaluating the financing options, they chose to work with C1 Bank’s Port Charlotte branch.

The Laccettis learned about BoeFly at the recommendation of Jake’s Wayback Burgers, which is among more than 125 franchise brands that have selected BoeFly to assist their franchisees with financing support.

“Providing efficient access to financing for our franchisees is absolutely key to our growth, and we want to ensure that all Jake’s Wayback Burgers owners are able to spend less time worrying about funding and more time on starting up or expanding their restaurants,” said John Eucalitto, President of Jake’s Wayback Burgers. “BoeFly has been an invaluable service for helping our franchisees connect with the right lenders for their financing needs.”

BoeFly Co-president Mike Rozman views this success story as an uplifting solution to the widespread issue of small business credit access in the U.S.

“It is always encouraging to see small business owners, franchisors and lenders taking advantage of more efficient solutions to the challenge of accessing capital in today’s tight small business credit market,” said Rozman. “BoeFly has helped Anthony and Alison Laccetti and many others efficiently secure financing to start up or grow their businesses, and we look forward to continuing to work with reputable franchisors like Jake’s Wayback Burgers and lenders such as C1 Bank to help drive small business growth and create new jobs.”

About BoeFly

BoeFly makes it easier to obtain small business loans (http://www.boefly.com/) by reducing the time, cost, complexity, inefficiency and frustration associated with small business lending.  Its online proprietary matching technology connects small business borrowers with multiple lenders from among its over 3,600 participating banks, based on the lending profiles provided by the banks and the information provided in the borrower’s loan request.

Borrowers build a complete decision-ready loan request online using BoeFly’s exclusive “SmartForm” technology which, when completed, provides the information that over 3,600 lenders nationwide indicated to BoeFly they want to see before moving forward with a loan request. The SmartForm is easy to use and guides borrowers through the process. Once BoeFly’s matching technology identifies compatible lenders, borrowers then have complete control over which lenders can instantly access their loan request.  Using BoeFly, borrowers can connect with multiple lenders quickly and easily, providing a greater probability of obtaining a loan, as well as more favorable loan terms resulting from the creation of a competitive marketplace.   Lenders benefit by being presented with only those loan requests that fit their lending profile, dramatically lowering their cost and time of origination.   BoeFly is not a broker.  Borrowers pay a small one-time fee and lenders pay an ongoing subscription fee.

BoeFly, now a strategic ally of the International Franchise Association to expand credit access within the franchise community (http://www.boefly.com/ifa.cfm), offers a Franchise Solution brings these benefits to the large and growing small business franchisee community and is the choice of more than 125 brands, including Dunkin’ Donuts, Carl’s Jr., Express Personnel and Kiddie Academy, among many others.

BoeFly’s Affiliate Solution is the financing exchange chosen by the Association of Small Business Development Centers, representing approximately 1,000 centers nationwide, which are funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration, to serve small businesses, and Franchise Gator, the leading site for information on franchise opportunities.

BoeFly was founded by small business owners and small business lending experts with extensive small business lending experience. The company is privately-held and is based in New York City. http://www.boefly.com.
