We're for cafes

A place for conversation, quiet reflection, business meetings, chance encounters - but above all, a great cup of coffee. At SilverChef we understand the work that goes into creating the perfect cafe. We’re all about giving you the flexibility you need to adapt and grow as you build your thriving cafe business.

Growing your cafe is easy with
Rent-Try-Buy®

What is Rent-Try-Buy?

Rent-Try-Buy® is a 12-month rental agreement, allowing you to try equipment in your business before you buy it. Enjoy unrivalled flexibility when it comes to owning and managing your commercial hospitality equipment.


How does it work?

During your 12-month Rent-Try-Buy agreement, you have the following flexible options:

Upgrade at any time. For example, if you outgrow your two-group coffee machine, replace it with a three-group and simply add the balance to your weekly payments.

Purchase at any time. Once you know the equipment is right, you can purchase it outright with no penalty. In fact, you'll receive a 50% gross rental rebate on your first 12 months' payments'.


Options at 12 months

When your 12-month Rent-Try-Buy agreement finishes, you can choose from the following options:

Purchase the equipment. If you know the equipment is right, you can purchase it outright and receive a gross rental rebate on your first 12 months' payments'. You can do this at the end of your 12-month agreement, or at any time during the 12 months.

Continue to rent. Continue renting and keep your options open, while the purchase price continues to reduce with each weekly payment.

Extend your contract. If you decide to extend your contract for another 12 months, you'll receive a 25% discount on the previous rental price, when you sign up. Plus retain the ability to purchase and upgrade at any time.

Return the equipment. If you've decided the equipment no longer suits your needs, simply return it with no further obligation.


What type of equipment can I finance?

Starting or growing a serious hospitality business means serious equipment - so we finance most types of commercial hospitality equipment available from our network of accredited dealers. And if you're starting from scratch, we can finance your complete fit-out, including custom stainless-steel fixtures and furniture.

Another cost-effective option is our own range of Certified Used equipment . SilverChef's Certified Used equipment comes from businesses like yours, who have returned equipment through our Rent-Try-Buy product. Most Certified Used equipment is less than 18 months old, has undergone a six-stage refurbishment process and comes with warranty.


How do I get started?

At SilverChef, we back potential and passion. We look for ways to say 'yes', to help get your hospitality ambitions off the ground.

You can apply for finance with SilverChef in one of two ways:

1. Apply online. Whether you know the equipment you want or not, we recommend you apply as early as possible to secure your finance. There’s no commitment, and the application can take as little as three minutes.

2. At your preferred equipment dealer. We partner with hundreds of hospitality equipment dealers nationwide. You can be approved instore for up to $40,000 in less than 10 minutes.

'When we started the cafe, the idea was to have a sea change. We wanted to get out of Auckland, and this opportunity in Whangarei seemed perfect.


'SilverChef has helped us immensely. They provided us with fiannce for our large oven - something that would otherwise have been a huge cost upfront. We are also renting other bits and pieces from SilverChef, which gives us lots of flexibility. Doing it this way works very well for us.'


- Robert Findlay, Cafe Botannix
