Ice Cream Equipment Finance

With costly Italian ice cream manufacturing equipment one could be forgiven for not knowing whether you are in Florence or Felixstowe. More and more the British public are wanting the variety and quality of the ice cream they expect whilst on holiday abroad. Whether it’s a new start business or an extension to an existing catering establishment Armada knows, understands and is ready to support with the ideal ice cream equipment finance.

Case Studies

Supporting a dynasty

Supporting a dynasty

Gilly Pollock’s family has been retailing dairy products and ice cream in Cardiff and Monmouth since 1888.

When Gilly planned her Green & Jenks Gelato House in Monmouth in 2015 she made sure that Armada was in the mix.

Financing the Italian gelato manufacturing plant and refrigeration made us flavour of the month.

As Gilly said  “We were very nervous about financing the new business but these concerns were negated when we were introduced to Armada. We found them so helpful and with a friendly voice to support us. Thank you for everything.”

Lavinia Goodall is an experienced restaurateur and business woman who has been operating an ice cream parlour on the sea front of Whitley Bay since 1982.

She relies on Armada to support her when she needs new equipment. Recently she needed to replace major refrigerated display serve-over counters.

Having funded and supported the ice cream industry for over 40 years it only took a couple of hours to agree to fund the cabinets for her new Hot Cross Bun ice cream.

 

“You were as easy to deal with this time as you were the last time. You really are a very helpful company and lovely people to deal with.”

Service to melt in the mouth

Service to melt in the mouth

Whether your memories are of summer holidays at the beach, confused by the choices in the ice cream parlour or you now enjoy chillaxing with your mates in a gelato bar, quality Italian ice cream is most definitely “on trend”.

The Macari family have been famous gelato manufacturers and retailers since time began. Lucia Macari’s family has been supplying exquisite ice cream in Mumbles, South Wales for over 50 years.

When Lucia needed additional batch freezers she asked her supplier to recommend a suitable asset finance company.

From the moment the referral arrived at Armada to the signing of the documentation, 48 hours, not even the Croccantino al Rum had time to melt.

 “In 50 years we have never seen faster, more friendly service than Armada.”

Lucia Macari, Fortes Mumbles

Why wouldn’t you want to be whale watching whilst holding an exotic, handmade ice cream?

In Tobermory, on the Isle of Mull you can stand in the doorway of Kyle Morris’ new ice cream parlour and view dolphins playing in the bay, sea eagles diving for fish or watch passing Orca whales.

The idyllic position of Kyle’s shop belies the fact that the premises, right on the harbour edge, were once Tobermory’s public conveniences.

All was set up for this high end new business, making quality handmade product, using milk from Isle of Mull cows. However, finding funding for the equipment Kyle needed proved to be a stumbling block, especially as she wanted to be open for the height of the season.

As soon as she was put in touch with Armada the asset finance for her equipment was agreed.

“After months of uncertainty, when I was introduced to Armada, suddenly there was light at the end of the tunnel.”

To be or not to be

A popular family entertainment centre sits on the banks of the Avon not far from The Swan Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon. Containing tea rooms, a pub, theatre and riverside terrace, the owners try to meet all the patrons’ expectations.

When they decided to produce top-quality ice cream they had the sense to call in the experts for advice and to acquire the best equipment for the purpose. John James of RSS Hereford has 35 years of experience and was more than capable of providing the exact machinery for the best product.

Having known Kirk Smith and Armada for 35 years, John knew that our equipment finance was exactly what was needed.

Armada was the solution
