Cash America International
Cash America International, Inc. (NYSE:CSH) provides specialty financial
services to customers in the United States.
In 1983, Cash America founder Jack Daugherty opened the first Cash
America Pawn in Irving, Texas with hopes to build a company that would serve the
under−banked population − those who could not get financial help from
traditional financial lenders. Since then, Cash America, a publicly−held company
headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, has expanded to nearly 900 lending locations
and 7,000 employees.
As the nation’s largest provider of pawn loans, the company operates in
21 states under the brand names Cash America, SuperPawn, select Cashland
locations and select Payday Advance locations. The company also offers
short−term consumer loans under the brand names Payday Advance, Cash America,
Cashland and SuperPawn. Check−cashing services are offered through its
company−owned and franchised Mr. Payroll locations.
