Lender: Find the Right Financing for Your Franchise through Guaranty Bank

Posted online

Franchises offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to go into business with the benefit of an established name and
business model, and for some, opening a franchise offers great advantages over starting a business from scratch. Either way, it’s incredibly important to start out with financing that’s right for each business’s unique needs and circumstances.

Guaranty Bank is a well-established resource for both existing businesses and franchises, and Small Business Banking Officer and Chartered Financial Analyst Michah Scott knows that finding the right loan means sorting through a gamut of options to find the one that’s right for each business. For example, many individuals considering a franchise are aware of financing programs offered
through the franchise itself, or the possibility of using a home equity line of credit to secure funds.

“The fact that a loan product is popular doesn’t mean it’s right for your business. The most common option might be just fine for you, but there’s a good chance that our experts can connect you with a loan that exceeds your expectations,” Scott explained. “Seeking insight from an experienced lender can be the difference between struggling with a loan that’s not quite right or flourishing with
the right financing. And, while Guaranty Bank is large enough to offer every resource business clients require, the decisions that affect your loan are made right here by someone who understands your business
and your community.”

“We are a local, full-service, commercial bank. We have an outstanding staff of lenders whose goal is to structure financing that’s right for you. Plus, Guaranty Bank has been a part of the business community in southwest Missouri since 1913, so we base our understanding of what our business clients need not only on current trends, but on nearly 100 years of experience,” Scott added.

Having worked with a broad range of businesses – from manufacturers to restaurants, small family run operations to multimillion
dollar corporations – affords Guaranty Bank the insight to counsel any type of business borrower. Individuals seeking to fund a franchise have unique needs, according to Dana Montgomery, Director of the Corporate Services team at Guaranty Bank. “Like
any other type of financing, funding a franchise isn’t ‘one-size fits all.’ We take a good look at each customer’s desires and determine how they can be incorporated into a business plan before making a recommendation.” Guaranty Bank’s support for corporate clients also extends far beyond initial financing.

Guaranty offers solutions and services to see to the business owner’s success including
versatile checking and savings accounts, Cash Sweep, remote deposit, mobile and online banking, merchant services and more. Montgomery added, “Banking with us is about convenience. We work hard to make the lending process as streamlined as
possible, and to offer financial services that make life easier for our clients. We want to build a relationship with our customers that continues for years to come.” Member FDIC.
