Loan Express History
A Tradition of Service
Loan Express is a family-owned company that has provided traditional installment lending for more than 85 years. Lee Moore III is the founder and CEO of Financial Operating, Inc. (formerly Chek Cash, Inc) – the parent company of Loan Express.
The Moore family started our history of responsible lending in July of 1930 with the opening of our first branch, Signature Loan Co. In April of 1980, Lee Moore incorporated as Chek Cash, Inc. and proceeded to open three more locations in the 1980’s. During the next twenty years, Mr. Moore opened fifteen more branch locations. Our last branch opening was in August of 2015, bringing the total to twenty locations servicing our Texas customers.
