I was initially trying to secure finance to buy an Oporto franchise business but I have come to find out that an Oporto franchise loan is specifically available for this. I do not know anything about it and I am quite close to actually buying so can anyone please explain a few of the features of this loan, such as the term and how much I am allowed to borrow?

Hi Kaido900,

With an Oporto franchise loan, you can get a piece of the action while being your own boss in the competitive fast-food industry with your own Portuguese chicken and burger store while taking advantage of the benefits of a franchise system that’s over 20 years old.

If you have the capital and a strong financial situation, we can help you secure finance, you may be able to borrow up to 50% to 60% of the total business costs to buy a new store or an existing one. If you can provide a residential property as security then this essentially goes up to 100% and you won't even need a deposit!

The typical loan term is 10 years as per the franchise agreement but with a property as security, it will be a standard 25 to 30 year loan term.

If you're going interest only, know that lenders will generally provide an interest only term of around 2 years or more depending if you’re using property as security. Low doc options not available.

We can help negotiate strong commercial loan interest rates and you’ll need to provide a business plan and profit forecasting along with your application.

Cash flow is crucial in business and this is a great way to keep more cash in your pocket for start-up capital. Having capital to contribute to at least the first 6 months of operations is a typical requirement while having a clear credit history reflects your character as a borrower, which is important in painting a good picture with the bank.
