The UK chip shop sector is seeing a surge of interest, with new shops starting up and existing premises being refurbished and re-opening. New technology and energy-efficient chip shop equipment is expensive to purchase, so leasing facilities can be a real advantage in staying ahead of your competitors.
Johnson Reed’s dedicated team of chip shop equipment finance advisors also works closely with trade associations including the National Federation of Fish Fryers (NFFF), the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) and the European Network of Supplies and Equipment (ENSE). So we understand your needs as well as having considerable knowledge of the chip shop equipment market.
As a recent example of our service, we sourced a chip shop equipment finance leasing facility for a new-start shop. We financed £50k of new and refurbished equipment and the client invested £15k. Other examples include established shops replacing fire-damaged equipment with no-deposit finance, and other clients asking us to help them with new energy-efficient equipment.
It’s easy to provide superficial finance facilities that may look very attractive, but at Johnson Reed we go that one step further. We take the time to fully understand your business, your management capabilities and your future. We then build those observations into the decision making process. We underwrite using a common sense attitude, resulting in flexible finance to suit you.
We are supported by over 30 lenders to spread the load, which creates acceptable ways to manage any risk. At Johnson Reed the answer is almost always ‘yes’ to chip shop equipment finance requests.
