Consulting services for start-up and business operation

Purchasing a franchise is a big-ticket item. But even if you aren’t able to pay for the franchise in cash, several financial assistance programs, including both traditional and non-traditional options, are available to those who qualify. Programs include grants, loans, financial aid, and even retirement rollovers — which offer a tax-free option on the purchase of your business. For a complete listing of lenders and programs, please contact us today.

  • Are you financing the amount for the acquisition of your business?
  • Do you have a retirement account in either a 401 (k), personal IRA, or some other retirement savings account?
  • If you could finance your business using these funds, and avoid paying taxes on the distribution, would you?
