Silver Chef has cemented its reputation as the hospitality industry’s dominant provider, with nearly 60 percent of Australian coffee shops using the company to improve performance through flexible financing options.

Its industry influence was confirmed by an analysis of Yelp’s recently released list of the Top 100 Coffee Places in Australia. Of the top 100, 59 venues are currently or have previously used Silver Chef to fund their equipment purchases.

ASK-listed equipment finance company Silver Chef chief operating officer Damien Guivarra said the company’s dominance of the list reflected the high standards that could be achieved by clients when utilising equipment finance.

“Part of our goal is to free up time and resources to allow operators to focus on the really important stuff- great coffee and great customer service,” said Guivarra. “The fact we have so many clients in the top 100 is a great endorsement of our product and strategy.”
