HORSHAM, Pa., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AAMCO, the world's largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, today announced it has partnered with BoeFly, an online marketplace for small business borrowers and lenders, to accelerate national franchise development of the brand. Through this strategic partnership, AAMCO will be able to leverage BoeFly's nationwide network of lenders to help new and existing franchisees secure the financing needed to open and run their businesses successfully.
"At AAMCO, we are committed to the success of our franchisees and this partnership will position us for continued growth," said Brett Ponton, president and CEO of AAMCO Transmission, Inc. "With BoeFly's service, it allows our franchise partners to quickly and easily understand their financing options for opening new centers or enhancing their current location."
At no cost to AAMCO franchisees, BoeFly's loan experts will assist them in creating complete bank-ready financing requests and through a single post on BoeFly's internet-based loan exchange, they will have immediate access to banks and non-bank financing institutions that are interested in lending.
"Although small business lending has steadily increased over the last six months, franchise owners are still facing difficulties in accessing capital needed to grow their businesses," said Mike Rozman, CEO of BoeFly. "Through BoeFly, AAMCO franchise owners will gain access to more than 5,000 lenders without having to worry about doing the legwork and negotiations. We look forward to working with AAMCO to ensure financing is more accessible to those franchisees seeking access to funding."
For over 50 years, AAMCO's locally owned and independent service centers employ the latest technology and its expert technicians diagnose a repair, fix it right the first time and back it with a nationwide warranty. Known as the world's leading transmission expert, AAMCO has evolved into a total car care brand providing a variety of services, including brake repairs, tune-ups, shocks and struts, routine maintenance and more, and was recently named to Entrepreneur's 2015 Franchise 500®. Ranking at the top of the transmission repair category based on system size, growth rate and financial strength also earned the brand a spot on Entrepreneur's "Best of the Best" list.

Interested candidates should have a minimum net worth of $250,000 and liquid assets of at least $65,000 per unit.
