A revenue based loan could be your breweries lifeblood and provide it with several financial benefits. When your brewery is growing, chances are you'll need an injection of cash to continue its growth. Bank loans are often times too restrictive and challenging to obtain. In this situation, a revenue based loan may be the best solution. If you use it wisely, a revenue based loan could do wonders for your brewery. Without being capitalized, chances are your brewery will wind up in a growth stalemate and that's not a good place to be.
Here are 3 benefits of a revenue based loan to fuel your brewery:
#1. Helps Grow Your Brewery
If your brewery is under 2 years old and starting to scale, you obviously want to ride the wave. You cannot do this without a dependable source of capital. Bank criteria is typically a minimum of 2 years in business, strong cash flow ratios and perfect credit. LVRG is able to provide brewery owners up to $1MM in a matter of days, as long as you’ve been in business for 1 year, $150,000+ in annual revenue and have a 500+ credit score. This type of loan will give you a shortcut to cash since it only requires a few months of business bank statements. Many times, your bank statements are enough to demonstrate that you can repay a revenue based loan.
#2. Get Cash Quickly
You're busy brewing beer and running your brewery, you don't have to time to compile overly detailed loan packages and chasing after bankers. A revenue based loan will provide cash quickly with a very short turnaround time. If you are prepared to apply for a revenue based loan and have the appropriate supporting documents ready to go, you may be able to get funding in a matter of days. Compare that to a bank loan where the loan process is on average 2 to 4 months. This is one of the main advantages of a revenue based loan. Some breweries actually consider this a lifesaver, and will go this route over a bank loan any day.
#3. No Lingering Debt
A revenue based loan will not weigh you down with highly encumbering, long-term debt. When you obtain a revenue based loan, you will not be looking at 5 to 25 years to repay a loan for money that you're using today. Think about it, why would you want the headache of paying off a 2015 marketing campaign all the way into 2025? Not to mention, having this type of long-term debt could hurt your chances for getting funding in the near future, which all breweries will need if they plan to scale. With a revenue based loan, you will pay it off in roughly 6-15 months, which makes more sense for short-term expenses. Additionally, we are usually willing to replenish the loan after roughly 50% is paid down, so you can continue getting more capital along the way. Which is perfect for a growing brewery.
As you see, the preceding steps show you how a revenue based loan could be advantageous for your brewery. It helps you grow your brewery quickly and it does not saddle you down with long-term, highly encumbering debt. It gives you the cash that you need quickly, to grow your brewery, your way.
