Executive Summary

An SBA lender with enough experience and resources can go beyond the numbers. Where another lender might pass, the right lender knows which details to mine for, and how to build a case for a deal that closes.

Pet franchises and other pet care businesses are full of these deals.

Common challenges to pet franchise acquisitions include:

  • The collateral is a mix of commercial real estate and residential
  • Deals in the industry tend to be unsecured
  • The borrower's industry experience is related but not direct (e.g. they've worked in dog walking but never owned a doggy daycare)



Creative Solutions, Reliable Results

As a non-bank lender, Ready Capital got the deal done.
Betted on owner's potential: Pampered Pet Services in East Dundee, IL
  • Got the deal done despite the owners having fairly limited (related) industry experience
  • Highly leveraged deal

Quick closing and relocation: Wag Resort in Grand Junction, CO

  • Got the deal closed on very short timeframe, by EOY, in time for our clients' tax filings
  • Helped owners make a smooth transition from business sellers to buyers in two different states

Ann Randolph, Hoffman-Haus


“We were purchasing two different brick-and-mortar locations, and the seller had an expedited deadline. The team held regular meetings with us. They had very methodical, excellent communication every step of the way. They worked hard and got it done. We look forward to working with Ready Capital as our needs expand.”
