HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 1984, co-founders
Don Early and Mary Lou Andersen
opened a rent-to-own store
near Kansas City, Missouri.
THE EARLY YEARS
QCHI expanded operations in 1989 to offer check cashing services, followed by introducing short-term loans in 1992.
Recognizing the strong demand for financial products and services, QCHI sold the rent-to-own business in 1994.
The company could now better focus on check cashing and short-term lending. Driven by strong consumer demand, QCHI established more than a 100 new store locations over the next two years.
In the years following, the organization diversified its consumer-directed products and services to offer longer term installment loans, online loans and Factoring for the small business.
In 2011, QCHI acquired Canada-based Direct Credit Holdings, a leading provider of Canadian online loans, and subsequently started offering online loans in Canada.
The company started rebranding its more than 250 retail locations in 2014 under the new LendNation brand. Continuing the company evolution, QCHI started upgrading its loan management and point of sale system in 2017 to better
meet customer expectations.
Another milestone in the company’s history followed in 2017 when the company introduced a new corporate identity and moved headquarters to it’s new offices in Lenexa, Kansas.
Formerly known as QC Holdings, Inc., the company is now known as QCHI.
