Some lenders will borrow a little for operating capitol in a new build. Its best if you have that banked already cause the building process can be long. Then the ramp up of a new location can take a few months as well. If you are buying an existing location it may be easier to predict cash flow as the seller should have P&L’s to supply you. If its cash flow positive when you buy it then not much reserve is needed.
