James Burns started Pazzo Pazzo to combine old-world Italian charm with modern lustre, giving patrons a fresh take on the old country.

When construction of a new arena blocked foot traffic around Pazzo Pazzo for an extended period, James turned to a merchant cash advance to help bridge the gap. This lender refused to give James the APR on his loan. When James calculated this himself, he knew he deserved a better rate. That’s where Lending Loop came in.

Turning up the heat on his previous lender

Like many restaurants, James took out a merchant advance. As he eventually learned, the rate this lender advertised was not the one he thought he was paying.

Why Lending Loop Was Better

Lending Loop believes in transparency. Business owners have enough to worry about -- their lender shouldn’t add to the stress.
