Capital's Franchise Finance business announced today that it has provided Guerrieri Management, Inc. (GMI) with a $6.8 million credit facility. The company currently operates 12 Taco Bell restaurants in the Tampa-Clearwater area, according to a statement released by the company.
Gordon Guerrieri, company president, originally engaged franchise financial advisors MarshallMorgan, LLC, who suggested GE Capital. MarshallMorgan later worked with GE Capital to find the best financial structure for the borrower's future growth and goals. GMI used the bulk of the funds to refinance current debt, including debt related to one newly opened Taco Bell location.
"When I started looking to expand, I was impressed by GE Capital's understanding of the development process," said Gordon Guerrieri, company president. "That, combined with their creativity and fast execution, gave me what I need to grow my business."
