GE Capital’s Franchise Finance business announced today that it has loaned $6.5 million to Wright Investment Properties, Inc. (WIP), a hotel management and development company based in Cordova, TN. The majority of the funds will be used to refinance and renovate a 90-room Residence Inn situated in Memphis, TN.

“We’re actively pursuing acquisitions and we believe we have a proven formula for growth,” said Larry Wright, Jr., president and chief executive officer of WIP. “We’re pleased to work with GE Capital because we believe they have the industry expertise we need to help us continue to succeed.”
