Lodging, Food and Beverage Success Stories

Offered Loan Advisory to Multi-Location Restaurant to Save $240,000 in Interest

A local restaurant client had opened another location utilizing financing through an SBA loan. Our team came in and provided loan advisory services to identify the best loan and banking organization to fit the needs of their business. We were able to introduce them to a middle market bank with restaurant experience to help their seasoned business reach profitability faster. After devising a plan to pay off the variable rate SBA loan, we helped pair them with a conventional fixed loan. The restaurant saved $30,000 per year in interest over the remaining eight years of the SBA loan, offering an extra $240,000 to invest back in their business. The new banking relationship also offers intangible savings such as better cash management and security advantages.

Improved Operations, Profitability and Cash Flow of a Restaurant

By reviewing and analyzing the restaurant’s expenditures as a percent of revenue, we were able to benchmark this data to identify operation and cash flow improvements. After implementing operational enhancements and uncovering cash flow shortages, the restaurant was able to lower expenses by $50,000 during the first year and profitability has continued to improve.
