For Army veteran Mathew Nesbett and his wife Bridget, business ownership has been a lifelong dream. But turning that dream into a reality is much easier said than done. That’s when the Nesbetts turned to a franchising opportunity with Baskin-Robbins.
The first-time franchisees bring years of restaurant and retail experience to the table. Mathew currently works as a CFO for a South Carolina-based company, and has previously served as the general manager of a restaurant. Bridget, on the other hand, has long served in a management role for a leading retailer. But despite their industry expertise, the Nesbetts still had trouble securing the financing they needed to get their new franchise off the ground.
“By becoming Baskin-Robbins franchisees, Bridget and I are achieving our dream of business ownership,” said Mathew. “We were a little anxious about the financing process, but fortunately Baskin-Robins introduced us to BoeFly.”
The Nesbetts worked with a dedicated BoeFly financing expert who guided them through the entire financing process. BoeFly’s unparalleled commitment to finding an efficient financing option for each individual client ultimately introduced them to a lender they had never heard of before. It wasn’t long before their SBA loan was secured.
“We received great service from our BoeFly financing expert who made getting an SBA loan easy. She stayed with us through the entire process. I would recommend BoeFly to anyone who needs business financing,” said Mathew.
Franchisees like the Nesbetts consistently turn to BoeFly to help find their best financial path to business ownership. BoeFly has served franchisees from more than 600 unique franchise brands. Every financing connection BoeFly makes is unique and fits the needs of the specific client.
“The BoeFly team is proud to have supported the Nesbetts in securing the financing they needed to acquire their new Baskin-Robbins shop,” said Mike Rozman, BoeFly’s CEO. “In this particular case we were able to find a lender that was focused on helping veterans, which meant better terms for the Nesbetts.”
Going forward, brands like Baskin-Robbins will continue to rely on BoeFly’s customizable service as they expand and add new franchisees to their systems.
“We’ve long been committed to supporting our new and existing franchisees,” said Kevin Boylen, director of finance for Baskin-Robbins’ parent company Dunkin’ Brands. “We’re pleased how BoeFly was able to serve the financing needs of the Nesbetts, our new Baskin-Robbins franchisees. BoeFly provides a great benefit both for us at the brand level as well as for our local business owners who need to secure small business loans.”
