Business Financing

As one of the fastest growing methods of business expansion in Canada, business format and brand name franchising can help you grow your business. Franchising enables you to combine your proven concept and operating systems with the local market expertise and capital of your franchisee.
Our financing solutions are as unique as your business. We offer customized financing packages for all types of owner-operated business systems if you’re considering franchising as an alternative source of capital or as a means to lower your leverage.

We can help you to finance the franchisee for a variety of purposes, including

  • New franchise purchase
  • Franchise renovation
  • Franchise expansion

Franchise Financing could be right for your company if:

  • your company is an existing owner-operated distribution system in a growth phase and with a track record of success.
  • your individual franchisee/unit requirements are in excess of $50,000.
  • your company is operating satisfactorily with a reasonably strong balance sheet.
  • you may be considering converting your stores from corporate to franchises.
  • customized financing packages for most types of franchised business systems
  • you require access to an alternative source of capital
  • you require access to a full range of corporate finance services

Our working capital solutions are designed for two main types of clients:

  1. growing companies that need additional capital to fuel their growth and take advantage of additional business opportunities, or
  2. companies that require re-financing or re-structuring of their existing financial structure

Most conventional lenders provide financing only to those companies whose financial ratios fit within certain conservative, narrowly defined parameters. GreenFlow has developed a different approach to help you with your working capital needs.
