We chose Elite Restaurant Equipment to finance our our restaurantequipment. This is our third franchise so we knew exactly what we needed. We filled out the short form and representative from Elite Restaurant Equipment's finance department contacted us. We had to disclose sensitive information to be succesfuly in getting financed. Our business opened 5 years ago so we had some track record. We chose a 24 month program and got a goo interest rate for our restaurant equipment.

We purchased this flat glass bakery display case from Elite about 2 weeks ago. The item arrived on time without any damages. We are pleased with the service provided by Elite Restaurant Equipment and would most certainly do business with them again. We financed the bakery display case. We chose a 6 month program because we wanted to pay off the item as soon as possible. If you are interested in financing for restaurant equipment know the rates are higher than a standard loan such as a credit line or mortgage. The reason the rate for financing restaurant equipment is larger because it is a small amount with no bigs assets securing it. This makes it more risky for banks. Having said that, restaurant equipment financing can prove to be lucrative if using the money in the right place. It is working great for us and, short term is the way to go.

This 57'' high dry baker display case is exactly what my shop needed. The height if this case was perfect for my shop. We didnt have the credit limit available so we chose the use the finance program for our restaurant equipment. We chose an 8 month term. We have 1 month left and are happy we financed the baker display case. The frame is all stainless steel and is of the finest quality. Elite Restaurant Equipment was professional with its customer service as well as its delivery. I was very pleased with my experience with them they will be getting my business again.

We purchased this glass sliding door merchandiser through financing and we couldn't be happier with it. its easy to use, all we had to do is plug it in and we were all set. This item was a great investment and brought sales up. We got in house financing and are glad to say we finished payinh the glass reach in refrigerator within 6 months. Our business has been doing well, although I plan to finance more restaurant equipment since it pays for itself.

I designed my entire kitchen with Universal units because I like the price, quality, and functionality. I recommend this line to all my buddies who own restaurants. We financed over $20,000 worth of Universalrestaurant equipment. We vhose a 15 month plan.

We financed restaurant blenders, as total of 4. The total price was less than $1500.00. We are paying a total of $450 interest over 18 months which i think is easy money. I bought all the big restaurant supply with cash.This Universal Commercial blender is mostly used for smoothies and it has no trouble powering through ice, carrots, frozen fruit, fresh apples, etc. I love the Universal brand (we also have some of their other refrigeration units) because their products are simple and easy to use (no frills) and they work well. For instance, most blenders would have a billion settings like "puree", "crush", etc. and have 5 different speeds. This blender has 2 settings: "hi" & "lo", and "on" &"off" and that's enough to do the job wonderfully.

This is a good product (restaurant equipment and supply financing)  I am recommending it to my friends in the business. I know shipping a cutting board is easy, but it was packed  very well. The cutting board was rapped and completely brand new. We financed a lot of smallware (total: $7500). Finaincing smallware, dinnerware, and kitchenware was an easy choice out of the equipment and supply needed for my restaurant. We chose the 24 month finance pay off, and we put 30% down. Our payments are low and affordable.
