How BoeFly began.

BoeFly was founded in 2010 when forward-thinking small business owners, lending experts and technologists joined forces with one goal in mind: to make getting a small business loan easier. With the view that small business growth and financing are intrinsically linked and in need of smart innovation, we went to work.

When we started the business, it was exclusively focused on how we help small business borrowers get financing more efficiently. Along the way, top franchise brands approached us to speed up their franchise sales process. They wanted a better journey for their applicants with faster sales and openings.

Our goal is to make it more efficient through the power of technology and the personalized service from experts who truly care.

Now that is a challenge we were eager to solve. So we did. Since that time, we’ve developed a proprietary Franchise Sales and Finance System to meet the core needs of franchise brands and small businesses throughout the entire process — from vetting franchise candidates to matching them with lenders who can move fast.

Looking back and accelerating forward.
