As a new franchisee, I am fortunate to be working with Rod Silva and his team at Muscle Maker Grill. When they heard I was researching funding options they referred me to the equally talented and supportive team at Benetrends, and specifically Kim Graham. Kim reviewed my financial situation and introduced me to the Rainmaker program. Kim was professional and patient with questions as she guided me through the step-by-step financing process of the Rainmaker which led me to determine that using my retirement assets, tax deferred and penalty free, was a commonsense approach to financing my Muscle Maker Grill restaurants. The program allows me to reduce funding costs, enhance cash flow and invest my retirement resources in my future success....

Although we are not back to the levels seen in 2011 in terms of dollar amount, as the chart below indicates, there was a 31% increase from 2014 SBA fiscal year to the 2015 fiscal year. *Source: SBA Lending Statistics for Major Programs.
