Leasing Restaurant Equipment FAQs

As with any financial situation, there are typically plenty of questions that come to mind as you navigate through the process, but we want to make it as easy as possible to find the answers to your questions. Below are a few of our most frequently asked questions, but if you have one that we have yet to answer, let us know.

Do I qualify for financing?

We work with a wide variety of options and programs to allow for more qualifying options for leasing. The majority of our customers that inquire about leasing are able to get financed. Generally speaking, the main lease-to-own qualifiers are:

  1. How long have you been in business?
  2. How would you rate your credit?
  3. How much are you looking to finance?

However, it's important to remember that we are able to work with a wide variety of situations. To see if you qualify, you should contact our team to see if we can help.

How long does it take to find out if I qualify?

We have different leasing partners that we work with, and each of them have a different qualifying period. If you're working with Bill Me Later, they'll be able to tell you if you qualify within seconds. If you're working with Vend Leasing Company, they're qualifying time varies.

How does leasing work during tax season?

Equipment being leased can be written off as a rental expense, which helps save over traditional depreciation methods.

How much of a down payment can I expect to pay?

The good news is that financing doesn't require much of a down payment to get started. For most financing options, the first and last month payment would be the only payment needed to secure the loan.

Will my monthly payment fluctuate?

Your monthly payment will remain the same throughout the life of the financing terms.

What are my payment options?

We can work with you on finding the best payment options for your business. Some flexible terms that past customers have been able to take advantage of include 90 day deferred payments at the beginning of the financing terms, seasonal payments, and annual payments. Ask our team about additional payment options.

Can I Finance Multiple Items?

Yes you can, as long as it adds up to $1,000 or more; in fact, we have a smallwares team that will help you bundle everything together, at no extra cost to you, and our financing team can help you get the funding needed for all of those smallwares (restrictions may apply).
