How to qualify for countertop fryers financing?

Let us zoom out and get a more generalized idea of what it takes to qualify for restaurant countertop fryers financing. Just like any other kind of business loan, countertop fryer financing is only available to restaurant owners who meet certain standards. Luckily, the bar is not very high to qualify for restaurant equipment loans. There are typically three routes to qualify for countertop fryers financing. Let us take a look at them:

  • Credit score: If you have a credit score of more than 600 and have been in business for at least one year, you will possibly be able to qualify for Star Mfg 530TF financing.
  • Cash flow: If your credit rating is not great, but your restaurant revenues are high (comparative to the cost of the appliance), you can be eligible for restaurant equipment financing based on your cash flow.
  • Down payment: Even though you have poor credit and only mediocre restaurant revenues, you are eligible for countertop fryers financing by offering a down payment.

The best part about restaurant equipment financing is their flexibility. An equipment financing company will be able to offer you financing, not unless you have child support collections or open bankruptcy. Remember, your interest rate will reflect how strong you are as a borrower. For example, if you have a poor credit rating, you might qualify depending on other extenuating factors. However, you will have to pay a higher interest rate since you are considered riskier to lend to.

Star Mfg 530TF financing for bad credit

Borrowers with bad credit have a better chance of being accepted for countertop fryer loans than other financing kinds. Since their finance appliance collateralized restaurant equipment financing loans, this makes them less risky to lenders. In case you default on the debt, the lender can seize and liquidate the Star Mfg 530TF to recoup their losses. As such, bad credit is not a deal-breaker in the financing approval process. At Top Financial Resources, if a borrower has bad credit but can prove healthy revenue or the capability to provide a down payment on the fryer, 90 percent of cases will receive funding. But remember, even if you might be approved with bad credit, you will probably face higher interest rates than borrowers with good to outstanding credit ratings. If you can wait on funding, you might consider improving your credit score before applying to receive the most favorable terms.

Leasing Vs. Financing Star Mfg 530TF Fryer

You will have to choose if to get a lease or a loan for your commercial countertop fryer. A lease is the same as equipment rental. You typically pay for a particular amount of money per month for the right to use the machinery. When the equipment lease term ends, you either return the equipment to the vendor or buy the equipment. The purchase price will depend on the kind of lease you have; however, not unless you buy the appliance at that time, you will not become the owner. With some types of leases, the appliance does not even show up on your balance sheet. In contrast, a loan effectively makes you the owner of the fryer, and the fryer will show up on your balance sheet. You make monthly payments, and at the end of the loan term, you are the outright owner of the appliance. Leases are common with appliances that become obsolete faster when the restaurant owner is sure they will require an upgrade at the end of the lease term.  It is a common perception that leasing is less expensive than purchasing, but this is not always the case. Make sure you check the prices and do the proper calculations before to see which option is best.

Costs and terms of countertop fryers financing

If you are eligible for countertop fryer financing, you will be wondering what it means in practice for your restaurant. Luckily, restaurant equipment loans’ costs and terms are pretty favorable since the equipment acts as collateral. Here are the typical terms of Star Mfg 530TF financing:

Financing amounts

With countertop fryers financing, you will be able to fund up to 100-percent of the price of the appliance you are hoping to purchase for your restaurant. Note the keywords are up to -100 percent financing is typically reserved for the best borrowers. If you have low credit, low cash reserves, low revenue, or used equipment, you will probably have to bring some down payment to the table. Your particular percentage will be based on the quality of equipment you are hoping to purchase and your own credit score. However, if the conditions are right, you could finance the entire cost of the equipment your restaurant needs.

Repayment term lengths

The repayment term length on your countertop fryer financing will also depend on the nature of the appliance (in this case, whether used or new) – you will generally repay your restaurant equipment financing over the predicted life of the asset in question. The term of the loan typically will not exceed the useful life of the appliance.

Interest rates

Since your commercial countertop fryer secures the loan, the lender takes on less risk. If you are not able to pay back the loan, the lender will simply seize the equipment. Because the lender’s risk is less, you will be able to access comparatively low-interest rates for Star Mfg 530TF financing.

Thus, you will be able to get funding with this kind of business loan in as little as 24 hours of application.
