Air travel and packaged holidays have brought significant changes in people’s lifestyles as we are experiencing in funding the catering industry through asset finance.
In years past, fine dining had to be experienced in established hotels or a handful of expensive restaurants – now, gastro pubs and beachside cafes are producing top quality food, enjoyed in a relaxed atmosphere.
So it is with fast food and takeaways – once the preserve of fish and chip establishments, burger bars and kebab shops. Discerning folk who have travelled are now seeking out the massive choice of international food found at street venues.
The Digbeth Dining Club and Borough Market are examples of a worldwide selection of street food that can be eaten on the hoof or sitting at pavement tables, taking in the local scene while listening to talented musicians.
For 40 years Armada has been financing catering equipment, tuk tuk vans or ice cream/fish & chip vans – it’s good to be involved with entrepreneurs selling food from the Far East, Mexico and South America et al or funding pop-up establishments.
Life is never dull in the hospitality industry or in asset finance.
