I am trying to open a restaurant in the Kings Mountain area of North Carolina. I am having difficulty finding a lender. Do you have any suggestions? smile.gif

Do you have a formal business plan that includes a market analysis? Providing that kind of support might help convince a lender.

Being completely honest, this type of loan will be difficult to fund. Most mainstream lenders avoid giving loans to restaurants, and your project involves a startup. That is what they call having two strikes against you.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Restaurants have a notorious rate of failure. High credit scores, availavle capital and business exp are the most important factors. Do you intend to finance the business or also the real estate?
