Financing
Port of Subs® is listed on the U.S. Small Business Administration Franchise Registry, which may shorten the loan process for franchise investors. We do not offer direct 3rd party financing though we may be able to offer some guidance on where to obtain information.

You are required to contribute at least 30-35% of the total investment in liquid cash. These funds should not be generated from 401K or IRA liquidation, or by securing Home Equity Loans or Lines of Credit. Franchisees are welcome to secure financing for up to 70% of the investment with a lending institution of their choice.
