Restaurants Canada and Silver Chef join forces to give businesses new equipment financing options

Published July 13, 2018

Restaurants Canada, the largest association representing Canadian foodservice and hospitality professionals, is excited to announce a new partnership with Silver Chef, Canada’s leading dedicated hospitality funding partner.

Through a preferred partner benefits program with Silver Chef and their dealer partner network, Restaurants Canada’s members from across the country will now be able to take advantage of an exclusive equipment financing offer to help grow their businesses. Eligible owners and operators will be able to finance equipment without any outlay of their own capital, giving them the flexibility to invest in purchases as simple as a single espresso machine, or larger procurements, such as a custom-designed cooking system.

“Silver Chef has $500 million to invest in Canadian hospitality businesses and we’re proud to be able to share that with the members of Restaurants Canada,” said Robert Phelps, President of Silver Chef Canada. “Together we can help hospitality businesses grow, and the industry as a whole thrive.”

Both Silver Chef and Restaurants Canada have a long track record of working with businesses from across Canada’s hospitality sector — including restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and caterers — helping owners and operators achieve their potential.

“We are proud to partner with organizations who share our focus on the long-term sustainability of the hospitality sector,” said Shanna Munro, President and CEO of Restaurants Canada. “Silver Chef is disrupting the finance market with accessible ways for businesses of all sizes to make their dreams come true. We are so thrilled to give our members greater access to their innovative financing options.”
