|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?

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.
