Who we serve
An efficient kitchen is a simple fundamental of running a successful restaurant. Yet your kitchen can only be as productive as the equipment you have to power it. Chef Leasing offers you an affordable opportunity to hire restaurant equipment including the highest quality machines and appliances. With new equipment being released each year, all designed to help your restaurant cope with new menu trends, it’s important to keep up to date to give your customers what they want. Whether you’re starting up a new restaurant and require funding for an entire project, or just looking to replace a couple of items, Chef Leasing gives you the flexibility to react quickly to the demands of your business.

Whether you need an urgent upgrade of room products, such as kettles and teaspoons, or simply need to replace a single piece of catering equipment, Chef Leasing can finance the equipment needed to make your hotel excel.

“Leasing was particularly beneficial in the recent refurbishment of our bar, restaurant and kitchen – we were able to spread the cost whilst making additional savings due to the tax efficient way we can account for the Lease in our books – the additional savings are always welcome!”
Demetrios Pelengaris, The Royal Inn
“Chef Leasing tick all the boxes as far as we’re concerned – fast to response, flexible and customer friendly. In short, Chef Leasing really take the hassle out of leasing, leaving us to focus on what we’re good at – designing restaurants. “
Ian Bidmead, Space Catering
“If we open further venues I would anticipate using the combination of our catering equipment supplier and Chef Leasing once again to finance the kitchen investment. It is a tax effective way of spreading the cost and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this as an effective strategy rather than an outright purchase.”
Terry Garrett, The Royal Hotel
“We chose to lease our equipment through Chef Leasing in order to preserve our cash flow while the business was becoming established. The process was simple and stress free. We would definitely consider using Chef Leasing again and would recommend to any other business who were considering leasing.”
Pino Bianco, Tappinos
We choose Chef Leasing as it made more efficient use of our cash flow while maximising our tax advantages. The online process was quite easy and we would be happy to use Chef Leasing again in the future.
Andrea Zecchino, Veeno, the Italian Wine Café
Chef Leasing commenced trading in early 2013 providing nationwide finance facilities to the Catering and Hospitality sectors. As a specialist Asset Finance company working within these sectors we understand the obstacles and opportunities facing the industry every day.
We continue to support both new businesses and established corporations in reaching their full potential by utilising the many benefits of Leasing rather than purchasing their capital equipment outright.
Chef Leasing has enjoyed rapid expansion in recent years; this buoyant growth and success has enabled significant investment back into the business. We now use market leading software to ensure swift turnaround of applications, giving us the opportunity to use electronic signatures on the majority of our Lease agreements. This means fast return of documents without the need for traditional paperwork and postage!
The speed and ease that applications can be processed ensures that Chef Leasing is the Finance company of choice for many businesses large or small. But don’t just take our word for it – read our customers’ testimonials.
