Pizza Shops often require large sums of money upfront or in advance which may not be possible without proper financing arrangements.
To qualify for a line of credit, your pizza shop should have demonstrated profitability on the most recent filed business tax return. This showcases your ability to afford payments after drawing funds from the line of credit. Even if your last tax return shows net losses, you may still be eligible.
Certain expenses (non-taxables) on the return can be "added back" to the net profit amount, bringing your business to a qualifying requirement.
Examples of expenses that may be added back in are certain interest paid on borrowed money and depreciation expense incurred by use of equipment or real estate owned by company's members other than owner/officer/partner who is requesting loan.

Pizza is one of America’s favorite foods, eating an astounding 3 billion pizzas per year. To put it in perspective, according to the Food Network, the average American eats more than 6,000 slices of pizza in his or her lifetime! Similar to other food services, pizzerias need the ability to keep up with demand. This means that supplies and staff need to be constantly ready to go when orders come in.
Lines of Credit are available for Pizza Restaurants and most owners don’t apply for a line of credit before they actually need it. Think about it, you have to get insurance before you need it. The same goes for a line of credit. This is an interesting dynamic. For example, what would you rather do; 1. Borrow an expensive short term emergency loan when your freezer breaks, or 2. Already have access to a business credit line and finance the new freezer from this facility. Obviously option #2 is the best path!
Pizzerias are approved by our vast network of banks for lines of credit. Applicants can expect anywhere from 5% to 8% interest rates per year on money that is drawn from the line. These lines are revolving credit lines, which means that you only are charged interest on what you draw and then as you pay off the debt, the credit to the line is restored.
Unexpected costs, like most restaurants, often create financial challenges in the pizza industry.
Variable costs and fixed costs of running a pizzeria is probably one of the best reasons to get a line of credit. With ingredients and utilities becoming more and more expensive, pizzeria owners need to have access to cash. Variable costs like cheese for pizza and labor will change each month, so will power needs. Fixed costs like rent and equipment depreciations can be calculated ahead of time, but the variable costs is where a pizza place owner may need access to a line of credit.
Don’t get burned by expensive MCA or quick ‘next day cash’ loans. Be prepared for anything with a line of credit. To check to see if your Pizzeria is approvable, apply here.
