How to finance

Since the estimated total for AdvantaClean is on the more costly side, we recommend following these steps to get fully financed:
  1. Go to the AdvantaClean franchising website and review its financial requirements, including cash-on-hand requirements.
  2. Reach out to AdvantaClean about in-house financing for franchisees.
  3. If in-house financing isn't available, look for online loans, bank loans and SBA loans to help meet the $77,900 estimated opening costs.
  4. Compare lenders based on amounts, interest rates and what types of personal and business credit history they accept.
  5. Once you settle on a lender, gather all required documents, including account statements and assets.
  6. Apply for financing online or in person as required by the lender.

What types of financing is available?

Consider one of the following options for covering a portion of the costs to open a AdvantaClean.
  • Online loan. For a turnaround that's faster than a bank, an online business loan could be the way to go. Credit requirements are often more flexible than those of traditional bank loans, too.
  • Credit card. Using a business credit card allows you to spend up to your preapproved limit. This means if extra expenses pop up, you can likely cover them without having to take out another type of financing.
  • Bank loan. If you have stronger credit — typically a score of 670 or higher — a traditional bank loan may get you a more favorable interest rate than a credit card or online loan.
  • SBA loan. Qualifying for an SBA loan is easier than a traditional bank loan, but it typically comes with fees and higher interest rates.
Also check if AdvantaClean franchise financing is available. You may be able to get some of the costs covered for less than you would with other traditional funding options.
