Closed Zoup Franchise Loan in Chicago with Less Than 1 Year of Financials

The seller of this Zoup franchise location in Chicago had purchased this business less than a year ago.  Because of personal reasons he needed to sell.  The problem was that he did not even have a fiscal year of financials to show us due to the circumstances he bought the store under.  We didn’t have 2 years of financials and tax returns which is what most lenders and banks would require in order to underwrite a purchase such as this and grant the Zoup franchise loan.

We really only had 9 months of P&Ls to base our decision on and NO TAX RETURNS at all… That’s it! Thank goodness Zoup was an approved brand that we could finance through our Non-Bank /Non-SBA Franchise Hedge Fund. We were able to secure the new owner a Zoup franchise loan with a 6.99% FIXED Rate on a 10-year term with 20 percent down!  We were even able to get him working capital that would allow the buyer to replenish some of his Zoup franchise loan down payment right away!  What is also nice is he only had to show the 20% down a week before the closing so these funds really did not have to be seasoned whatsoever.  Now the new owner is looking to expand with another location very soon!  He should have a Zoup empire here shortly with the help of our Franchise Hedge Fund!
