As both a broker and a lender we are in a unique position to find the most suitable tailored finance for you.

At Shire Franchise Finance we will do all the hard work for you, working directly with the Franchisee to package & arrange a tailor-made finance solution. Our experience & expertise in the finance industry allows us to facilitate all your business model funding requirements, providing flexible products that are designed to meet the needs of the Franchisee.

We have access to a varied panel of lenders, allowing increased application approvals and assisting in maximising expansion opportunities.

When cash flow is tight, funding can help a business spread costs over several months or years, rather than paying them in one go. Shire Franchise Finance enable you to find the most suitable finance solution for your business by arming you with your own dedicated account manager and using our expert knowledge to package your finance application quickly and efficiently.

Helping Franchisors and Franchisees secure funding in 3 easy steps

  1. Help you decide on the best finance option
  2. Find the right lender and payment structure
  3. Manage the whole process
