Extending Your Bar

If you’re looking to make an investment in your bar or tavern, ARF Financial’s Flex Pay loan is the perfect solution to help you make those improvements now, grow your revenue and defer part of your loan’s repayment into the future. Our Flex Pay Loan is designed to give you a low rate, an affordable, fixed weekly payment with no disruption to your cash flow. We understand that cash is king, and with Flex Pay you have the utmost flexibility to invest in your business while maximizing your profits!

Adding More To Your Menu

Adding new cocktails, beverages or craft beers, expanding your bar menu, increasing seats or improving your bar’s overall experience can lead to a huge increase in profits. We strategically leverage our relationships with banks across the country to provide the funding you need to take advantage of such opportunities for growth, all while offering you affordable payment options. What’s more, unlike a cash advance, the payments don’t increase when your revenue does allowing you to pocket the profits from your hard work and smart investment.
