Funding Your Business
Use Your IRA/401K
to Fund Your Business
If you have retirement funds that you have not yet paid taxes on, you can access those funds to capitalize a business. You can then use those funds to buy a business, for any business expense, and to pay salary!


You are in control, you decide how much of your retirement funds you wish to use for the business. When working with a company that specializes in this funding option, and follows all of the IRS guidelines, you are able to buy a business Debt Free and Equity Rich (from the rollover of your IRA/401K funds). Additionally, you'll have a new 401K/Profit Sharing Plan that you can begin to contribute Tax Deferred.

The Fear Factor of Buying a Franchise




Author and Philosopher Bertrand Russell once said "To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."

Buying a franchise is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so feeling fear is not only normal, it is entirely appropriate to the situation.

Who has fear? Everyone! Fear prevents us (most of us, anyway) from jumping out of a moving car or going over a waterfall in a barrel. Fear helps us make choices that are less likely to endanger our lives. Fear also prevents us from gambling our life's savings on a horse race or marrying someone we've known only a few days.
However, when we feel we have enough information about a subject, we can often get over fear and do things that were beyond our comfort zone.
If you are one of those people who has done your homework and found the franchise opportunity you've always dreamed of but can't seem to commit to a decision, then the final doubts you have are probably about your own abilities rather than the franchise itself.
This is where a qualified franchise consultant can help you. By assessing your interests, skills and experience, a consultant can guide you to a decision where risks are at an acceptable level and the benefits, while not certain, are well worth the effort.
The only problem with fear is when you allow it to stop you from doing something you know will make a positive difference in your life. Don't let fear stop you from reaching your goals!

MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company
Cash Needed: $200K
Total Investment: $502K-$600K
Total Locations: 2                               
MidiCi (pronounced mee-dee-chee and means "you tell me" in Italian) The Neapolitan Pizza Company is a fast casual restaurant that brings friends together.  Their certified pizzaiolos (pizza makers) invite guests to select fresh, natural, non-GMO high quality ingredients to create their ideal Neapolitan pizza in the open, center-staged bustling kitchen, also known as "the heart".  MidiCi's Neapolitan pizza has a combination of a chewy and crisp dough topped with all-natural ingredients, all baked to perfection in 90 seconds.  Staying true to its Neapolitan heritage, the dough is made with only four fine ingredients - non-GMO double zero flour imported from Naples, pure water, sea salt and live yeast.  The authentic and pure garnishes include - crushed non-GMO Italian peeled tomatoes, "white gold" buffalo mozzarella, fresh whole mozzarella and organic, non-GMO Italian extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil.

MidiCi also serves personalized Neapolitan appetizers (antipasto), fresh artisan burrata, fresh salads, brunch specials on weekends, wood-fire roasted coffee, a sommelier selected collection of white and red wines on tap, draft imported beers, and desserts - including authentic Italian gelato and a signature Nutella calzone, for a full experience.

MidiCi is led by the same team that quickly turned Menchie's Frozen Yogurt into the world's largest self-serve frozen yogurt franchise.  Their vision is to make the world a friendlier place, and their mission is to bring friends together.  With a love for people at the core of its conception, MidiCi serves authentic Neapolitan pizza as a delicious excuse to get together; believing a meal is better when shared with friends circled around the dinner table.

Why open a MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company franchise?  Because they offer their franchisees:
  • 5-8 weeks of training at MidiCi Global Headquarters
  • Ongoing support
  • Quick ramp up
  • Low inventory
  • Desirable footprint size (2200-3800 sq. ft.)
  • Serves high quality and healthier products
  • Unique guest experience
The build-your-own pizza concept has become popular because it offers a compelling deal for customers and for business owners.  Customers get to order a pizza that is just for them, so there's no need to negotiate over toppings.  Business owners relish the opportunity to own a fun business where it's possible to earn more revenue per dinner - four people who might split a $20 pizza at another chain will each buy a $9 pizza.

MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company is growing throughout the United States and is seeking entrepreneurs who are eager to grow the brand in their markets.  Fast-casual pizza is a hot concept, and investors have an opportunity to define the marketplace in their cities and neighborhoods.  If you have a passion for community, for creating great experiences, and for seizing opportunities, MidiCi may be perfect for you.

MasterWhat is an Area Representative or Master License? 
Some franchises have opportunities known as Area Representative or Master Franchise Licenses.  An Area Representative License involves the development of a geographic region that can be as small as a single city or as large as an entire state; while Master Franchise Licenses are normally reserved for the development of an entire country.  You purchase the right to develop a designated area and share in the franchise fees and royalties with the franchisor.  You work closely with commercial real estate agents, business brokers and consultants in the development of your area.  The investment needed to secure an Area Representative or Master Franchise opportunity can start as low as $150K depending the franchise, the size of the population and the geographic area.
