Why Live Oak

Expertise

Because we have a singular focus on lending to educational services businesses, we understand the ins and outs of your center and what it takes for you to be successful. This means that we’re able to build a customized loan package that’s right for you, which is a benefit of working with Live Oak over other financial institutions that don’t necessarily specialize in educational services projects.

Relationships

We are invested in this industry and have built a network of relationships with some of the largest franchise education centers in the country. Because of these relationships, we work closely with all involved parties, including directly with the franchisor, to ensure we’ve come up with a loan solution that’s right for you.

Service

We offer service unlike most banks. Once your loan closes, you’ll be assigned a business advisor who will be your point of contact on any loan-related questions and help you make future financial decisions. As a Live Oak customer, you can rest easy knowing that we’re always by your side. Our dedicated lending team will also continue to provide you with top-notch service and guidance throughout the life of your loan.
