Retail, Restaurant, & Franchise Lending Course Overview
This Retail, Restaurant, & Franchise Lending course examines the details necessary for assessing a loan for retail companies, restaurants, and franchise businesses. These businesses differ from traditional commercial borrowers and other supply chain companies.
Unlike wholesalers or manufacturers, retailers and restaurants generally require high rent and occupancy costs to succeed, among other factors. This course will show you how to identify these factors and adjust for them to enable you to assess a loan for these prospective borrowers. At the end of this course, we will examine a case study using a real-world scenario.
