Funding Your Business
Use Your IRA/401K
to Fund Your Business
If you have retirement funds that you have not yet paid taxes on, you can access those funds to capitalize a business. You can then use those funds to buy a business, for any business expense, and to pay salary!


You are in control, you decide how much of your retirement funds you wish to use for the business. When working with a company that specializes in this funding option, and follows all of the IRS guidelines, you are able to buy a business Debt Free and Equity Rich (from the rollover of your IRA/401K funds). Additionally, you'll have a new 401K/Profit Sharing Plan that you can begin to contribute Tax Deferred.

The Fear Factor of Buying a Franchise




Author and Philosopher Bertrand Russell once said "To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."

Buying a franchise is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so feeling fear is not only normal, it is entirely appropriate to the situation.

Who has fear? Everyone! Fear prevents us (most of us, anyway) from jumping out of a moving car or going over a waterfall in a barrel. Fear helps us make choices that are less likely to endanger our lives. Fear also prevents us from gambling our life's savings on a horse race or marrying someone we've known only a few days.
However, when we feel we have enough information about a subject, we can often get over fear and do things that were beyond our comfort zone.
If you are one of those people who has done your homework and found the franchise opportunity you've always dreamed of but can't seem to commit to a decision, then the final doubts you have are probably about your own abilities rather than the franchise itself.
This is where a qualified franchise consultant can help you. By assessing your interests, skills and experience, a consultant can guide you to a decision where risks are at an acceptable level and the benefits, while not certain, are well worth the effort.
The only problem with fear is when you allow it to stop you from doing something you know will make a positive difference in your life. Don't let fear stop you from reaching your goals!

Featured Franchise Opportunities
Kitchen Refresh
Cash Needed: $2K-$65K
Total Investment: $2K-$65K
Current Locations: 8        
Kitchen Refresh was founded by Chris Reinicke, a former home inspector, after he repeatedly heard this same question from home buyers "I love the layout of the kitchen, but hate the look. What can I do about it?"  At the time, the only options were repainting, refacing, or a complete tear out.
While searching for a less expensive option, Chris had an "aha" moment: only paint the cabinet boxes - since they are solid construction, and use a more efficient machining method to just manufacture all new, solid, one-piece doors and drawer fronts and update the hardware.  With this innovative process, there is massive cost savings of working with the existing cabinetry.
Kitchen Refresh franchisees are owner-operators who typically have an interior design or carpentry/home remodeling services background or natural ability, are coachable, are great verbal communicators with excellent problem solving skills and can effectively project manage and deliver superior client service.
Kitchen Refresh can be ideal for an interior designer who is currently employed with a design company but who wants to embark on their own venture and who would otherwise be nervous about taking that leap, or for an existing interior designer or home remodeling contractor who already has their own business and would like to add an additional income stream, along with opportunities of cross-selling their other interior design or remodeling services they provide.  By starting with or adding a Kitchen Refresh franchise, it may provide stability while you build complementary aspects of your interior design or home remodeling business.

Eight Turn Crepe
Cash Needed: $50K
Total Investment: $150K-$300K
Current Locations: 2     

The name 'Eight Turn' comes from the deep, asian reverence and respect for the number eight.  The number EIGHT (8) (八 ) (hachi) in Japanese signifies happiness and prosperity.  It is also symbolic of the concept of infinity - Happiness and Prosperity Forever.

The word 'Turn' doesn't just reflect the beautiful way that their crepes are designed.  It also comes from a mindset of changing the paradigm and emerging into a new, healthy and happy reality.

Eight Turn Crepe opened its doors in New York's Soho neighborhood in 2013.  Founded by Hiro Ninisha , a Japanese hospitality expert who has lived in New York City for the last two decades.  Hiro's vision was to bring a Japanese product to America and introduce a scalable business which focuses on superior customer service, presentation and quality.

Eight Turn Crepe serves made-to-order crepes rolled in the traditional Japanese cone-style.  Their gluten-free batter crepes are filled with fresh, unique ingredients and then artfully rolled so that they can be eaten with one hand.  Prepared sweet or savory, their crepes can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.  With more than 40 crepe menu items, coffee, drinks and gelato offerings, Eight Turn Crepe is on the verge of becoming a force to be reckoned within the fast casual restaurant industry.

Eight Turn Crepe is looking for franchisees with a passion for incredible food and want to invest in an emerging concept poised to redefine the crepe industry in the rapidly growing Japanese fast casual category.  Preferred franchisees will have experience owning and operating multiple franchise units in a territory, or be qualified investors who want to join a growing franchise.
