Frustrated with the lengthy and – seemingly insurmountable ad-hoc requirements imposed on first time business owners, the company has taken matters into its own hands.
Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
Even without considering the financial implications, the stresses surrounding starting a business are plentiful. The recent economic collapse in America has made funding for many first-time business owners nearly impossible. Where banks and government agencies historically offered assistance, today’s entrepreneur is stuck looking for alternative ways to obtain funding to pursue their dream of owning a business.
Forza Coffee Company, a specialty coffee franchisor in the Seattle-area, has taken matters into its own hands. Frustrated with the lengthy and – seemingly insurmountable ad-hoc requirements imposed on first time business owners, the company has established a financial funding arm to help would-be franchisees interested in owning a coffee shop franchise.
The company anticipates lending nearly $3 million to first-time business owners or those looking to expand their investment portfolio across the country.
As specialty coffee sales skyrocket, organizations like Forza stand ready to serve the growing demand.
Over the last 18 months, Forza — which means ‘strength’ or ‘unity’ — has refocused their business model in preparation of franchise growth. The 7-year-old company has built its model around creating the “neighborhood gathering place” – a comfortable and safe environment for neighbors to gather throughout the day. Perhaps for a morning business meeting or a glass of wine with friends in the evening.
Forza serves beer and wine in several locations throughout the Puget Sound to cater to today’s busy and active lifestyles. The atmosphere does not resemble a bar or tavern, making it a safe and friendly place for families and professionals.
The company is anxious to find passionate and driven individuals who may have been turned down by banks and lending institutions that are active in their community. Forza’s model – to be the gathering place of the neighborhood – hinges on people within the community being involved in the business.
The community stands to benefit, as well. According to the company, each new café generates employment for 10-15 baristas; work for general contractors and construction companies; and a boost to local economies through sales tax revenue.
In tough economic times, the company has created its own path to secure financing for individuals looking to start their own business and take control of their destiny.
