What finance options are available for the franchise industry?

Buying A Franchise

The franchise industry is growing and growing fast! It currently generates more than £17 billion in revenue in the UK. From fast-food chains to health & beauty salons to retail outlets, there’s a franchise opportunity within almost every industry.

We work with a number of lenders who provide specialist franchise funding, empowering prospective franchisee’s with the capital required to secure an opportunity and maximise on the advantages which franchising affords.

Ignite your dreams and contact our team today to discuss your requirements and the options available to you.

Fit-Out Finance

Many franchise businesses involve premises which need to be fully fitted out, often aligning with the parent company’s requirements before you can begin trading. Whether it be shelving, stock, and point-of-sale equipment for a retail business, kitchen equipment at tables for a restaurant, or tanning booths, massage equipment, saunas and changing rooms for a health spa, initial costs can quickly mount up.

Our team of experienced finance brokers work with you to identify your requirements, and have access to a panel of lenders offering flexible fit-out financing options at competitive rates.

Asset finance

Having the right equipment to continuously grow your business & franchise is essential. Franchises depend on continuous expansion and progression. Asset financing with Union Business Finance means you can access those tangible services that will improve your business.

You might be franchising a restaurant chain and need to install new ovens & extractors. You might be franchising into several locations and need to purchase large volumes of stock or buy an existing franchise business. Perhaps you have experienced success in a specific location & want a larger space to expand into. Asset financing with us will enable you to gather the funds in order to do these.

Business loans

Business loans are a great choice for when you need help funding growth which doesn’t involve a particular tangible asset. For example, the Franchise Industry sometimes requires a large business loan for building works. Therefore, you might want to consider a business loan to allow you to conduct the necessary works to allow you to commence trade. Applying for a business loan with us with the relevant acceptance, will provide you with the financial support in order to do this.

Case studies

Fireaway Pizza Franchise
  • Location:

  • Service:

    Rama Gontola approached us seeking funding for his second Fireaway Pizza Franchise.

    With the majority of his investment caught up within his first store, being the only Fireaway Pizza within Norwich opening a second store to entice new customers allowed the business to monopolise the pizza industry in Norwich.

    We successfully managed to fund the project with competitive finance rates over a 3 and 5 year term, allowing the business to spread the cost allowing the customer to commence trading 2 years before his initial plan to open the second site.
