Charleston-based Company Launches the First Online Franchisor Operator Portal to Streamline the Lending Process for Franchisees

CHARLESTON, S.C. – By the end of this year experts predict there will be 792,000 franchise establishments in the US, outputting $827 billion. The largest segment of the franchising industry is quick service restaurants, comprising over $276 billion, or almost 34 percent. These are huge figures when one also considers that 1 out of every 7 businesses in the US is a franchise.

That’s why Loan Mantra has launched the first online portal to help franchise operators streamline the financing process for franchisees that provides secure financing to a variety of lenders and loan types through one bankable platform. A template landing page sample called Blue Ocean Chicken offers a glimpse at how the system works.

“It’s never been easier to serve up capital,” says Raj Tulshan, founder and partner of Loan Mantra, “Franchise owners needed a financial tool to scale with their needs. That’s why our best-in-class platform gives you the whole menu.”

In addition:
● A more efficient way to gain well-vetted franchisee owners
● A streamlined pre-approval process for your franchisee’s startup/business, leasehold, or equipment financing
● A secure, bankable platform where franchisors/franchisees, lenders and partners work together in real time--anytime, and anywhere
● The ability to white label an end-to-end platform that will funnel multiple franchisee owners to multiple loan products
● And, as always, our technology meets NIST Cybersecurity Rev 5 requirements
