Business Financing For Restaurants

Independently-owned restaurants represent a portion of these staggering statistics. To get an idea, food and beverage sales in 2015 for the country’s top 100 independently -owned restaurants totaled about $1.8 billion.
That’s welcomed news to privately-owned restaurants but it’s also daunting. How do you compete in what’s considered to be the most volatile industry in the US? Hard work and dedication are important but as you well know, they’re not enough. One of the key indicators of success is access to working capital.

Turn Future Sales Into Cash Now
Did you know that as a restaurant that processes credit cards, you may be eligible for a Greenbox Capital quick cash advance based on your future credit card receipts? Called a Merchant Cash Advance (MCA)¹ or credit card receivable funding, this type of business financing is one of the fastest and easiest ways to get working capital for your restaurant. Payback is daily or weekly and fully automated.
Repayment options for Merchant Cash Advances include Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments or split funding through your credit card processor or lockbox. ACH payments are fixed amounts that are deducted daily or weekly from your business bank account and are ideal for the business owner who feels secure knowing the amount of the payment in advance. Another method is split funding, which syncs the payment amount with your credit card receipts.
Affordable, Flexible Repayment
If your restaurant in located in a tourist area and experiences seasonal ups and downs or you simply prefer a payment schedule closely aligned with sales, split funding is a good choice. A split funding payment schedule is based on a fixed percentage of credit card receipts. The credit card receipts will vary according to sales, but the percentage of the receipts due as payback is agreed upon in advance.
Another option may be a small business loan² paid back via set payment amounts automatically collected daily or weekly from your bank account through Automated Clearing House (ACH). Term lengths range from 3 months to 12 months.
