Merchant Cash Advance for Restaurants

With times getting tough in the restaurant trade, a merchant cash advance could help overcome a crisis and invest in the business. Life can be tough in the restaurant business. With wages stagnating, many people are reluctantly cutting back on dining out. However, the market shows no sign of becoming less competitive with more restaurants opening up all the time, which means there’s less business out there and more people trying to get it.

This funding option is suited to businesses of all sizes, so whether you own a small or large business, you won’t be let down by our product. Our Business cash advance is an alternative unsecured business loan, which means it’s a flexible funding option for you, and has no requirement to secure any personal or business assets against the loan.

Our cash advance calculates how much your business can borrow by factoring in your monthly credit and debit card transactions. The percentage of each future card sale that is repaid to your lender is agreed prior to the conduction of the loan. This means you’ll know exactly how much you’re going to have to pay back with each sale, plus you’ll know that you only start the repayments once you’re making sales.
