Restaurant Equipment Finance

Restaurant Equipment Finance

With the UK being so ethnically diverse, the range of restaurant equipment and furnishings needing finance is extremely varied.

No longer is a restaurant kitchen just ranges, fryers and refrigeration - pizza ovens, wok ranges and tandoori ovens are commonplace items in UK commercial kitchens.

Armada has been funding ALL catering equipment, restaurant furniture, Epos systems etc with equipment finance for nearly 40 years. This is our home ground.

Case Studies

Chester goes Yankee

Chester goes Yankee

For over 80 years Americans have been enjoying high-end burgers and luxury shakes in the Steak ‘N' Shake operations across the US.

More recently they have opened franchises in mainland Europe and the Middle East. Now, with Armada’s support and involvement, the first UK sit-in and take-out restaurant has opened in Chester.

Successful entrepreneurs, Barry and Sarah Bellamy had taken time to find the right franchise for them and to locate the ideal premises for their new venture.

Knowing that their capital is better employed in their other businesses, Barry and Sarah looked around to find a funder to finance equipment for the new fast-food unit.

Was it because Armada has over 40 years’ experience of asset finance for start-ups and the restaurant industry or was it that our friendliness and speed of service matched their ethos?

They chose Armada as their finance partner and funded all the equipment on a tax-efficient 3 year contract.

Turning dreams into reality

Turning dreams into reality

Do you ever wish you had thought of an unusual concept for a new business?

Nori did. He looked at opening a sushi restaurant that caters for ladies with spare cash. With hen parties, baby showers and birthdays in mind, he planned for table service run by attractive, smartly dressed, attractive young Asian waiters.

As soon as he found the premises Nori approached Armada for finance in acquiring the furniture, flooring and kitchen fit-out. With two existing successful restaurant businesses behind him, it took only hours to make a decision to support the new venture.

Having financed the setting up of restaurants for over 40 years it’s rare to come across a new concept, however, Nori and Armada made the right call – a brilliant idea, well-funded  and already a ‘go to’ destination.

Speed of service is Armada's Mojo

Speed of service is Armada's Mojo

When husband and wife, Ian & Johanna Ashford were in the process of opening a new tapas bar and cocktail lounge in Cardiff, The Mojo Lounge they came to Armada for support.

Their furniture supplier needed paying before they would place the order for the goods and time was ticking to fit in with the opening.

Ian asked if Armada could expedite the paperwork for funding the furniture – no challenge there then, we just had to operate at our normal speed.

Within 48 hours of their request the contract was prepared and signed and the supplier received their payment!

Ian & Johanna were overwhelmed –

“If it hadn’t been for Armada’s speed of service we would have lost the discount in the deal.”

When Simon Foderingham revamped his wine bar & restaurant, Simons @ Oxfords in Southampton he, as usual, turned to Armada for asset finance. Whether he needs catering equipment, EPOS systems or furniture, Simon knows that Armada is there to support him and has extensive experience of financing the catering industry.

“We have used Armada Asset Finance on various occasions during our 15 years. We have found them to be very professional and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Putting the customer first

Putting the customer first

With the changes that have taken place in the last few years in business funding, SMEs are once again seeing the value of relationships, loyalty and service.

When brothers, Tom & Owen Morgan need equipment or furnishings for their tapas bars and deli’s, Bar 44, in Cowbridge and Penarth, they know that Armada is there to support them with asset finance.

Funding equipment over 3 years makes sense – not too short a contract to hurt the cash flow, not too long that the commitment seems endless. It suits them Sir!

 “Yet again we are delighted at the speed and professionalism of Armada Asset Finance. A very nice company to deal with.”

Service matches expectation

Service matches expectation

At the centre of the stunningly beautiful national park of the New Forest is the village of Brockenhurst. With the Balmer Lawn Hotel and Carey’s Manor Hotel on the outskirts of the village it is not surprising that Suhel Miah and his family decided to open Bistro 26, to take advantage of the wealth and tourism in this part of Hampshire.

The Miah family already own three Indian and one Thai restaurants in and around Southampton, so with their experience they were looking for knowledgeable and supportive asset funders to finance the catering equipment at Bistro 26. Armada, with 40 years’ experience, matched their taste perfectly.

As Suhel said – “When I first contacted Armada I immediately felt at ease with the company. Everything was explained in a clear & concise manner and within days the funding for our new restaurant was in place.”

Stephen Gomes was born in Mumbai and subsequently trained as a chef in the Continental 5 star hotel group in South Africa, Bahrain, Dubai and Bangkok.

In 2007 Stephen approached Armada to support him in opening his Moksh Indian Restaurant in Cardiff Bay. An asset finance agreement was set up to fund the catering equipment, refrigeration and furniture.

Since our initial assistance in 2007 we have funded many other contracts and Stephen has consistently won national and international awards for his ability and quality each year. He is now being compared to Heston Blumenthal because of his advanced techniques.

No client has ever been so appreciative of Armada's help or aware of the importance of our involvement in his start-up business.

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
