Franchise Finance

Franchise Finance - Quick Service Restaurants

Regardless of where the operator is located, without exception we make an in-person visit to meet the management team and tour the restaurant stores. "No one has ever done this!" our clients tell us.

Did You Know?

City National's Franchise Finance expertise is very narrowly focused on Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) and casual dining restaurants. The QSR and casual dining markets are strong in good times, and even in challenging financial times QSR and casual dining profits are stable to positive.

We focus on a limited number of restaurant "concepts" - including McDonald's®, Jack in the Box®, Carl's Jr.®, Taco Bell® Wendy's®, Hardee's®, Burger King® and Applebee's®.

We're McDonald's, Jack in the Box, Carl's Jr. Taco Bell, Wendy's, Burger King, Hardee's and Applebee's experts. We have deep knowledge of what's going on internally at the concepts  in our focus.

Are we a good business match?

Let's talk if:

  • You're a franchise operator in one of the concepts in which we specialize
  • You have at least 5 years' experience as a franchise operator
  • You have 5 or more stores
