Why First Franchise Capital Corporation?
Ask our clients. We did. They told us our service is what sets us apart from the competition. We are known for returning phone calls, getting answers to questions and making sure your needs are met. Our rates are certainly competitive.

Since FFCC is focused singularly on the franchised restaurant industry, our staff doesn’t need time to learn about your business. It is their area of expertise. But, that doesn’t mean that we don’t want to learn more about you. Our staff spends considerable time on the road going to our clients’ restaurants, getting an even more keen understanding of their operation. Add to this, the strong financial backing of our parent company and the individual customization described earlier, you can see why our client list has grown exponentially year after year.

Nick Hishmeh, Domino’s®

"Working with First Franchise Capital was a very pleasant and smooth experience. My Regional Vice President was knowledgeable of the franchise industry as well as our financial situation, and we built a relationship from the very beginning. I have no complaints with my experience, and I would definitely do business again with First Franchise Capital if a need arises in the future.”

 

 

Angelo Freites, Checkers®

“My experience was tremendous. It’s not often lenders exceed expectations, but First Franchise Capital provided a simplistic approach to financing and my loan was funded quicker than originally estimated. I highly recommend First Franchise Capital to small and large franchisees that need funding to continue their growth.”
