What is a Line of Credit?

A line of credit is an approved loan extended to restaurant and small business owners allowing them to draw upon when the need arises. This type of restaurant financing allows merchants to pull funds from their line as needed and only pay interest on the money they take. Restaurant owners have 24-hour access to 5 separate loan drafts over a 6 month period. You can even request funds online!
