Kirsten Benson Capital Access Advisor - FRANdata
Kirsten Benson is a Capital Access Advisor at FRANdata, a franchise-focused research and
advisory company. In her role, Benson is responsible for managing and consulting hundreds
of franchisors on their Franchise Registry membership and capital access best practices.
Franchise Registry membership eases access to capital and decreases the cost of capital
for a franchise system’s franchisees. It is done by helping franchisors remove the franchise
system hurdles from the lenders equation allowing them to focus on the borrower, and also
gives franchisors greater control of the perception of their franchise system’s credit
Benson’s role is to advise her clients on the best ways to reach, interact, and protect their brand perception amongst the more than 8,000 lender members on the Franchise Registry. Benson has helped hundreds of franchisors become more lender friendly and improve their franchise system’s “fundability.”
Kirsten lives in the Washington, DC area where she earned a master’s degree in Business Analysis with a concentration in Real Estate Development from Catholic University of America. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts & Science degree from Catholic University in International Business.
