Important Announcement – Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC acquires Franchise Finance Limited

We have loved working with Chris and Stuart and their team and are really pleased for them at this development. It will give certainty to the future of all concerned and will be good for our clients.

Press release from Franchise Finance:

We are delighted to announce that Franchise Finance Ltd has been acquired by Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC, enhancing our capability to provide finance deals to both new and existing clients in the Franchise Sector. Delivering great solutions is paramount and the deal has been uniquely structured so we retain our ability to work with other finance providers to give the best service for our clients.

Our funding success rate continues in excess of 95% and decisions on funding applications are typically given within 48 hours. At the end of 2017 we received the accolade of becoming the industry’s ‘Service Provider of the Year’ award and currently our highly rated customer service levels index stands at 4.9 out of 5 on

Our success is also due to the ‘one stop shop’ nature of our business in that we also provide a professional business planning service, undertake business health checks and run an acclaimed Business Training Academy (please email us on if you would like any information on any of these services).

We now have the opportunity, through Hitachi Capital’s current and prospective customer base to broaden the reach of these business services to UK SME’s on a much wider basis. This is a very important part of our growth strategy.

There are exciting times ahead and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients and partners for choosing to work with Franchise Finance over the years and we look forward to continuing this and gaining many new clients in the years ahead.

Kind regards,
Stuart Walsh and Chris Roberts
