We're for microbreweries

As demand for craft beer continues to grow among savvy consumers, there's never been a better time to turn your passion for brewing into a successful business. Whether you're an enthusiast looking to take your hobby professional, or you've been in the industry for years, SilverChef is here to help you grow and succeed. 

Growing your microbrewery 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 50% 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.

Grow your craft beer business

Creating a successful microbrewery is about more than making great beer. You need to build demand for your beer through your own outlets; while also finding a way to get into independent pubs and hotels. This means investing in equipment upgrades and reticulation systems - and that's where SilverChef comes in.


We help craft brewers by financing reticulation equipment, so that you can access on-premise distribution, sales and exposure. We also finance equipment like tanks, heat exchangers, filters, and filling head manifolds to help you increase production.


With SilverChef you get the equipment you need to bring your amazing craft beers to many more thirsty punters.
