Our Franchising Partners

We help connect you with the resources and individuals needed to help secure funding for your business.


First Financial maintains robust connections with leading franchisors and private equity firms across the country. Our expertise and benefit lie in guiding prospective franchisees through prequalification and selection of the appropriate financial product. The franchisor benefits through quick identification of qualified candidates. Utilization of First Financial and the power of SBA loans allow for franchisors to grow exponentially over a cash and roll-over only model. SBA loans provide working capital helping to ensure new franchisees are well capitalized and are prepared for turbulent years of business ownership. Lower default rates and successful franchisees help franchisors grow their brand.

Coaches and Consultants

Franchise consultants and coaches are pivotal in assisting entrepreneurs to identify their interests, strengths, and passions, guiding them towards suitable new business or franchise opportunities. These franchise professionals ensure that franchisees are informed about their funding options at the onset of the process, to prevent progressing too far without pre-qualification.

First Financial advocates for pre-qualification, enabling both consultants and coaches to operate more effectively with entrepreneurs, thus saving time and resources for all involved. More importantly, the potential small business owner has an understanding of the amount for which they may qualify.


Tax and accounting complexities are major challenges for franchisees in the early stages of starting a business. They often rely on CPA’s for guidance in regulatory and accounting matters. Our trusted partners at My Franchise CPA’s can assist any or all of the items below:

  • Entity Creation Support: Help franchisees establish their legal business entity.
  • Licensing Guidance: Assist franchisees in identifying and securing the necessary licenses.
  • Cash Flow Analysis: Provide franchisees with detailed cash flow analysis.
  • Accounting Services: Offer accounting support to franchises and small businesses.

Recognizing the complexities of credit management, we can provide credit consultants who are dedicated to assisting those in need of improving their credit health.
