Why Live Oak


Our team is focused on one thing every day – providing loan solutions to franchise restaurant operators nationwide. As your dedicated lender with in-depth industry knowledge, we will focus on your growth opportunities instead of you explaining how your restaurant works. Whether you’re a new or seasoned operator, we’re ready to help you take things to the next level.


At Live Oak, building strong, lasting relationships with our customers is our top priority. Once your loan does close, you’ll be assigned a Live Oak business analyst who will assist with answering loan questions, perform quarterly financial analyses and make ongoing recommendations to grow your franchise restaurant throughout the entire life of your loan. We always position ourselves as a partner who is invested in your personal and professional success.


We offer service unlike most banks. Our sales team has your best interests in mind when recommending financial solutions and servicing your loan because we’re non-commissioned. We measure our success by the success of your restaurant. Our dedicated lending team will also continue to provide top-notch service throughout the life of your loan.
