Mitsubishi HC Capital America announced it is expanding its franchise solutions to leverage new growth opportunities. The company is extending its reach into brick-and-mortar franchises in the health and wellness, recovery, and sports performance sectors.  Mitsubishi HC Capital America will also be expanding into other franchise areas by increasing its sales team to include leaders with franchise expertise in these selected areas.

“We’ve been very successful in the fitness vertical and are excited to bring our 100% financing solutions to other franchise brands,” said Carolyn Collins, Franchise Fitness Vice President of Sales. “The combination of our financing capability with our franchise expertise and consultative approach has really driven customer relationships, especially with multi-unit franchisees.”

Since 2020, Mitsubishi HC Capital America’s fitness franchise portfolio has tripled in annual volume due in large part to the company’s flexible solutions, seamless delivery and overall process that customers find fast and easy to work with. The fitness portfolio includes 14+ national franchisor relationships and nearly 500 franchise and independent business customers funded during that time.

Collins notes that many of Mitsubishi HC Capital America’s franchise business originates from its relationships with equipment manufacturers and vendors. She said, “As an approved lender, we provide funding for equipment orders which eliminates the need for upfront payment by franchisees. Our backing is also a value-add for franchisors that allows them to grow their brand.”

The Franchise Division provides a total financing solution that includes 100% financing for tenant improvement (construction), signage, lighting, equipment, opening inventory, and anything the business needs to meet brand standards. The division offers flexible structures, such as six-month deferrals post-opening and financing specials throughout the year.
