The Marketplace Fish Bar chooses Johnson Reed

The Marketplace Fish Bar is a well-established father and son operation, having been traded in the family for 30 years, and has an excellent reputation locally for incredible food and excellent customer service. The restaurant has recently undergone a full refurbishment, and now looks stunning!

We were approached by The Marketplace to help them get equipment finance for a new frying range to help continue making the renowned food, and to help the owners pay for the premesis refurbishment, rather than having to fork out upfront cash lumps for equipment. By using leasing, The Marketplace can use their operational budget to pay for the equipment over a fixed period of time, rather than having to pay upfront. This also gives some pretty great tax benefits!Read More
