Focus on your restaurant, your food, your foot traffic. Not up-front equipment overhead. Because with SilverChef, there isn't any.
0% interest, 12 month upgradeable equipment leases.*
Get into your groove. See if what you leased is what you need. If so, keep it after 12 months and pay the remainder. If not, return it at any time or upgrade until you find what is.
Professional equipment for restaurant professionals
You get the equipment you need, without the overhead. That's what we offer. We've been working with chefs and restaurateurs for over 35 years, so we know what you need to be successful. We're not going to waste your time — or frankly ours — with subpar or consumer-grade equipment. We work directly with equipment manufacturers on our offering, so we're constantly evolving — and your equipment is all properly warrantied right from the source.
The secret to good food? Helping more restaurants get off the ground.
We're actually a certified B-corp - so we mean it when we say your restaurant can work. For 35 years, we've been helping other food industry spots just like yours. In Australia, New Zealand, Canada, places like that. But we think the Pacific Northwest is pretty great too, and so now we're setting up shop here.
Push button. Get approved (more or less)Get approved (more or less)
You've got something to prove, but not to SilverChef.
We crafted our leasing program around making chefs successful, not banks. Weekly tax-deductible payments keep your restaurant's credit liability lower, leaving you more operating capital to manage our own books — and we'll use the equipment we lease you as the collateral.
So getting approved is almost as easy as tapping the apply button.
Still curious? Here's some common questions.
Can I purchase restaurant equipment from SilverChef?
The commercial kitchen equipment on our website is only available to rent.
Our Rent-Try-Buy solution allows you to pay for the equipment in manageable, weekly amounts that protect your business's cash flow.
If after trying the equipment it proves to be exactly what you're after, you can buy it at any time. (You'll just need to give us four weeks' notice of your intention to buy,)
(You can also upgrade the equipment at any time or, after 12 months, continue renting it or send it back to us if it's no longer suitable.)
Can I physically inspect the equipment before ordering it?
The commercial kitchen equipment advertised on our website can only be viewed online; we do not have bricks-and-mortar showrooms.
This digital business model enables us to minimize our overheads and, in turn, offer our customers competitively priced restaurant equipment to rent, try and buy.
Our brand-new equipment is sourced from reputable and trusted manufacturers and, for extra peace of mind, generally comes with a one- to five-year parts-and-labor warranty.
If you have any questions about any of our equipment, please contact us.
Why does SilverChef operate only in Washington and Oregon?
SilverChef, which founded in Australia more than 35 years ago, launched in the United States in 2023.
We've also been operating in Canada since 2013 — our headquarters there are in Vancouver.
So, for our first foray into the US, we're best able to serve the Pacific Northwest, specifically Washington and Oregon.
We look forward to expanding our product offering to additional states in the near future.
