If you would like to view our list of lenders to assist you with funding your franchise Contact Us today.

  • Do you need financing for the purchase of your franchise?
  • Do you have money in an IRA, 401(k) or other retirement account?
  • Would you like to access the money in your retirement account to invest in your own business, without taking a taxable distribution?


By rolling your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Keogh or other retirement funds into Guidant's 401(k) franchise financing vehicle, you can:

  • Buy A Franchise, Lower Overhead and Increase Your Success Rate. Instead of sending interest payments to a lender, you can use your money to purchase advertising, buy equipment, lease a company van, or use it in any way that will bring you quicker profits.
  • Eliminate Personal Liability. Use our own funds to avoid pledging your home or other assets as loan collateral and potentially jeopardizing your personal credit.
  • Maximize Tax-Deferred Benefits. By investing your retirement funds into your own franchise, you can reinvest your profits tax-deferred in your business or in your retirement account. Build your business while you grow your retirement nest egg!
  • Enjoy Flexibility. You can mix your retirement funds with personal funds or capital from other investors. It's the ideal financing structure for husband-and-wife teams!
  • Invest in Yourself. Unlike taking risks in the volatile stock market, financing your business with retirement funds is an investment in yourself � one that you can control and count on!

Discover your retirement account's true investing power (and the ability to finance your franchise with money you already have)!

Guidant Financial Accrediations

With Guidant’s iFinance, you can avoid taking out a small business loan and use your retirement funds to finance your new business. Even better, because you’ll be buying stock as an investment in your own company, you don’t have to take a taxable distribution.

The structure allows you to mix your retirement funds with capital from other investors or your personal funds for maximum benefits. Furthermore, instead of taking unnecessary risks in the stock market, by using your retirement funds, you’ll be in complete control of your own financial success.  Plus, the money that you would have spent on loan interest payments, you can instead put toward marketing your business, purchasing equipment, hiring staff and essentially building your wealth. With less (or no) debt, you’ll be on the path to profitability in no time.
