Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
Franchise Business Review, the market leader in franchisee satisfaction research, and BoeFly.com, the premier online marketplace connecting small business borrowers with lenders, announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership.
As part of the partnership, banks and lending institutions that use BoeFly.com to connect with qualified franchise candidates will now have access to unique data on franchisee satisfaction at leading franchise brands.
“Our research has shown a direct correlation between franchisee satisfaction and performance, so it’s critical that prospective investors and lenders have this information,” said Franchise Business Review president Michelle Rowan. “BoeFly is widely known in the franchising world for its network of lenders and investors, so it makes sense our firms should partner. I am excited lenders will now have our survey findings at their fingertips as they consider different franchise investment opportunities.”
“BoeFly is always searching for quality information that will better position our 3,600-plus lenders to make fully informed decisions,” said Mike Rozman, BoeFly co-president. “We’ve been impressed at the quality of Franchise Business Reviews’ independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction and are excited to feature these important reports.”
“As an active franchise lender and a long-time BoeFly member, I’m pleased to know that the Franchise Business Review surveys will be available to me on BoeFly,” said Doug Cullinan, Southeast Region Director for Cornerstone Bank’s Small Business Capital Group. “I expect this information to help me better understand the franchise brands that I’m evaluating.”
