The New SBA Lending Rules & How they Change Franchise Development

SBA senior staff announced that the long-awaited changes to the franchise affiliation process are about to be issued through the release of a new SOP (Standard Operating Procedure).

SBA indicated the SOP will include a one-page addendum that addresses all franchise affiliation requirements.

These changes will lead to:

1. Franchisors having to negotiate with each lender on these issues, putting the burden of SBA affiliation and credit-related SOP issues on franchisors and lenders to solve loan by loan.

2. The SOP is a flexible document. But there are important issues that you need to understand.

Edith Wiseman of Frandata and Kent McClintock of M&T Bank will explain how this affects your franchisee’s SBA loans.

Make sure you attend this one, if you want your franchisees to be SBA eligible.
