Catering for the fast food industry

Catering for the fast food industry

Experienced restaurateurs and property developers, Luigi & Vincenzina Forgione, understand the market for quality take out food and the trends of the discerning, hungry British public.

In 2011 they decided to open Huckleberry's Chicken takeaway in Ware, supplying chicken with a "Deep South" influence. If you had that last night try their ribs and wraps followed by all the flavours of Haagen Dazs. The food is fast, the service is friendly.

Not suprising then that when they wanted asset finance for their catering equipment and fixtures and fittings they came to a lender who is renowned for the speed of service and friendliness.

Good choice

Armada - a lifeboat mentality

Armada - a lifeboat mentality

During the floods in Somerset in November and December 2012, Ed & Tim and their staff attempted to keep the water out of their riverside pub. Twice they had been successful but on the third occasion the water level rose 3 feet in the bar, restaurant and kitchen. The environmental health officer and the insurance company condemned all the catering equipment and refrigeration.

Getting the pub trading again was a priority and knowing the insurance settlement would take months they approached Armada to see if we would support them, knowing the circumstances.

With their knowledge of their industry, their track record and the equity in their freehold, Armada was swift in agreeing to asset finance all their replacement equipment, enabling Ed & Tim to rescue their Christmas trading.

Over several years Rupert built a solid relationship with Armada at his Cotswold country house hotel and pub. He counted amoungst his clientele, actresses, film stars, TV personalities and models. Consequently only the best equipment and furnishings were suitable for his guests.

Whenever Rupert had a need to replace equipment or invest in new he relied on and received the support of Armada to provide asset finance for the acquisitions.

His investment in an exclusive spa, built in the grounds of the hotel was substantial. He asked Armada for the equipment finance for the sauna and steam rooms and for the treatment rooms together with all the furnishings.

Visiting the beautiful market town of Lavenham in Suffolk, when they were on holiday, changed the lives of Paul & Sarah forever. Being a successful pharmacist prompted them to drop into the Lavenham Pharmacy & Perfumery on the High Street.

The quality of the premises stimulated so many ideas in the couple that they started to research pharmacies that combined perfumeries. Shortly afterwards they visited the Abbey Pharmacy & Perfumery in Sherborne, Dorset.

When they were introduced to Armada by their accountant their plans were to combine a pharmacy with a perfumery and add a small coffee shop.

With their backgrounds, savings and investment in their property Armada was happy to asset finance their shop fittings, alarm system and Epos equipment even though it was a new business. Their immediate success proved that the support for them was a good decision.

When Robert & Olly left the forces they decided to put their training, abilities and passion into starting their own business, Boulders indoor climbing centre in Cardiff.

All ages are catered for, from under 7s to school and scout groups, corporate development sessions and even granny and granddads wanting a coffee and a light snack - everyone is given the same care and attention.

Robert and Olly needed to purchase more equipment for their youngest climbers and asked Armada to finance these assets over 3 years.

Whether it's climbing frames or catering equipment for the cafe, it's the people who matter and it's the people Armada want to help.

Bircher & Noyes were asked to design and build CNC machines for a fine furniture manufacturer in the UK, as well as sourcing a funding supplier for the machines.

When B & N had problems finding any bank or asset funder to support their customer they tasked their accountants with finding suitable funders.

Finding Armada on the net, the accountants were impressed with the strength and longevity of Armada and asked us to consider supporting the supply of £80k's worth of machinery.

After due dligence of their customers and the strength of their directors Armada was pleased to inform Bircher & Noyes that a machinery finance agreement would be offered. All parties were delighted to conclude the deal.

Inlingua is an international language school network which is franchised throughout the world.

When Gilles & Craig were setting up their schools in Cardiff and Swansea to meet the needs of students and business people in Wales, it was to Armada they turned for equipment finance support for all the specialised IT equipment, furniture and telephone systems.

Since 2009 they have returned to Armada six times because they enjoy the relationship, appreciate the interest shown in them and their business and know that Armada are very supportive of franchise operations and IT equipment.

To dream of style & beauty

To dream of style & beauty

To really spoil that special lady in your life we suggest you take her straight to the King's Road in Chelsea.

A little shopping at Joseph on Duke of York Square followed by coffee at Manicomio, then an hour at the Saatchi Gallery. Just down the King's Road pop into R. Soles and let her choose a handmade pair of tooled boots. By lunchtime you will want to chill-out somewhere smart and sophisticated to maintain the mood. Beaufort House restaurant and private members club will surely impress your dream partner.

When Simon Oldham needed to refurbish Beaufort House it was to Armada Asset Finance that he came to fund his catering equipment and furniture.

After an extended lunch of devilled lambs kidneys followed by crab linguine, accompanied by a bottle of Puligny Montrachet it's time to hit the streets, only this time slow up and linger lots, contemplating the evening and all it holds in store.

A perfect ending to a perfect day
