About Silver Chef
While attending a trade show in the United States in 1985, Silver Chef founder, Allan English, discovered a new style of pizza oven that was set to revolutionise the pizza industry. Excited at the prospect, Allan and a business partner invested heavily in the pizza conveyor ovens to introduce into the Australian market. It soon became clear that many business owners could not afford to buy them, so the two entrepreneurs decided to rent them out instead. This was the beginning of Silver Chef. Ten years later, Allan formalised the new funding solution called Rent-Try-Buy®, which enabled small businesses to get hospitality equipment without the need for a large upfront capital outlay. Fast forward to today, over 30 years later, and Silver Chef is still helping people, offering flexible funding, affordable Certified Used equipment, a hub of knowledge and expertise, and a loyalty platform that allows our customers to grow their own loyal following. We partner with a wide range of hospitality businesses, from cafes to micro-breweries, restaurants to pubs, to help them turn their ambitions into reality. Silver Chef is an ASX listed company as well as a proud certified B Corporation, a new type of company that uses its power to solve wider social and environmental problems. Not only do we seek to genuinely connect with our partners and customers by supporting them in their professional aspirations, but through B Corp and Opportunity International, we also provide for families living in poverty, giving them the tools they need to transform their lives, their children’s futures and their communities. Living up to our vision is to lead with purpose.
