STORE Capital: Serving the Middle Market Companies Driving the US Economy
For the second quarter of 2018, average employment growth of middle market companies grew to 6.7%, the second-highest rate since the MMI (Middle Market Index) was established in 2012, according to the National Center for The Middle Market.
As the leader in middle market real estate capital solutions, STORE Capital continually strives to serve this vital market segment that drives the US economy. Defined as companies with revenue between $10 million and $1 billion, the middle market is estimated as a $6 trillion marketplace with nominal GDP equal to the third largest economy in the world.

To meet these unique business needs, create shareholder wealth, and enhance operational flexibility, STORE Capital offers innovative Master Funding Solutions. These are customer-centric offerings to meet specific growth needs such as expansion, renovation, and recapitalization.
