Opening a new business is not the most practical way to own a business. You may want to consider identifying an existing business that already has a location, loyal customers, a strong financial history, and established relationships with vendors.

However, during your search or after you have identified a business (OR if you decide that opening a business is the way to go), Business Lending Solutions LLC ("BLS") will identify the most appropriate financing option. Our nationwide lender network provides financing for any and all types of and size loan requests. We will discuss all financing options & expected costs, inform you of the probable terms and pricing, introduce you to the most appropriate lender for your particular financing need, negotiate the best rates, terms and conditions on your behalf, and finally, we will present a professionally-prepared loan request giving you the highest likelihood of obtaining bank approval.

Fortunately for our clients, we do not require payment for our services unless and until we present you with signed lender commitment. Please give us a call is you think we could provide value to your particular situation.
