ATLANTA, GA–(Marketwired – November 25, 2015) – On November 9, 2015, The Owners’ Manual welcomed to the studio Laurie Ford with ARF Financial. Host John Silvey sat down with Ford to discuss commercial lending for the restaurant and retail industry.
Ford is the Vice President of ARF Financial LLC, a California licensed lender that sources business loans and lines of credit for restaurant and retail merchants in all 50 states. Since 2001, they have filled the void between traditional bank financing and less attractive venues of obtaining capital, like cash advances and taking on equity partners. “We have the ability to secure financing where most banks stop, and give merchants the ability to maintain control of their business and become more profitable by meeting their financial goals,” said Ford.
The application process is simple and straightforward resulting in 48 hour approvals and fundings in as little as 7 business days. ARF’s quick loan approval process means that a client can have a working capital loan, line of credit, bridge loan or mezzanine loan or restaurant loan in days, not months, and without the need for collateral.
Ford brings with her almost 20 years of experience in restaurant financing. As a loan officer for restaurants, she helps navigate through the process of obtaining a bank loan. Her background gives her the ability to help clients grow their business with the use of capital ARF makes available when traditional financing is not available. “Having lived in Atlanta for more than 15 years,” explained Ford, “I have a great understanding of the market, community and needs of the restaurants I support.”
