Jennifer, there are few (if any) direct lenders on this site. We broker such loans and have just done a $12 million Gas Station/C-Store refinance. My point is that, even though the Client/Borrower is one of the largest operators of Gas Station/C-Stores in the US, the principal was required to provide personal guarnatees, in addition to corporate guarantees. The days of non-recourse lending are all but gone. That is not to say it cannot be done; however, it is rare.

Moreover, you will find that many Banks are not lending for retail Gas operations, any more - at least temporarily. At least two Banks - on a huge, Eastern regional Bank, and the other a national Bank - are both divesting themselves of such loans, even for some of their Clients that have flawless, performing notes. And it is not all the fault of the Banks; it is frequently the pressure from the Federal overseers.

You will potentially need to be searching aggressively, to identify a lender that will provide you a package that has decent terms.

Hey Thomas Fordyce. You screwed up. You wrote give "us" a call. You always write give"them" a call, "they" might be able to help you. (You know, like you have no interest in the company and trying to help out the posters for no particular reason.)
