When considering raising the money to become an Animals at Home Franchisee, and if you require a Bank loan we will work with you, but here is some initial advice.
Most Banks have a Franchise division which is a specialist unit within their Head Office, and it only deals with Franchise businesses. Your Local Branch may not be aware of Animals at Home or how we operate so you may get the opinion of a local manager rather than the opinion of the bank. So we will approach the Franchise division not the local Branch.
Animals at Home have been accredited by these Franchise divisions as a well-run Franchise Network. To quote a couple:
- Lloyds TSB. " We have a number of Animals at Home Franchises banking with us and running successfully, so we welcome more applicants"
- Nat West RBS " From our experience of Animals at Home Franchises, we are happy to receive applications for new Franchises"
- HSBC have approved and provided funding for many Animals at Home Franchise applicants, through their Franchise Department.
