Leasing scheme for foodservice operators

Rational launches intelligent leasing scheme for foodservice operators

Rational has launched a leasing scheme making it easier than ever for operators to get an iCombi Pro or an iVario, with costs from as little as £5 per day.  The scheme is designed to be as flexible as possible, to allow for different budgets, cash flows and aspirations. The Rational Leasing Scheme is operated in partnership with the CF Capital PLC (CF), one of the UK’s largest sales aid leasing and financial services organisations. CF has excellent customer service, offering high acceptance levels and competitive rates.  Customers who are interested in finding out about leasing a Rational cooking system can do so via the Rational nationwide dealer network.  Rational and CF have created an online portal where dealers can create bespoke customer leasing packages, including a quotation calculator, instantly. 

“The Covid-19 crisis has led many foodservice businesses to look hard at their budgeting. We felt a dedicated leasing scheme would be one way to support them in their growth.  We wanted to work with a leasing company that was not only accommodating of our customers’ circumstances, but that could also adapt schemes to suit specific purposes.  We didn’t just want an off-the-shelf package, we wanted a leasing scheme that is intelligently constructed to offer maximum flexibility and maximum benefits.  We believe the scheme CF Capital has created with us fits the bill perfectly.” 

Rational is known for the quality of its products, and their longevity. “A Rational iCombi or iVario multifunctional cooking system will give years of valuable and loyal service,” says Lohse.  “The scheme can run up to five years and then there is the option to buy.” 

Costs for the iCombi Pro range from £5 per day, for the iCombi Pro XS, to £23 per day for the iCombi Pro 20-1/1, which is suitable for producing up to 500 meals per day.  The smallest iVario cooking system, the 2-XS, is £8 per day.  Meanwhile the iVario Pro XL, suitable for up to 500 meals daily, is £17 per day. 

The scheme is also available for the iKitchen package, covering both an iCombi Pro and an iVario.  Examples include £20 per day for the iCombi Pro ten grid (10-1/1) combi steamer with the iVario Pro 2-S, which has two 25 litre pans. 

Leah Wright, CF’s head of the commercial catering channel, says, “We are really excited to be working with Rational.  We know that many foodservice operators aspire to own an iCombi Pro or an iVario.  CF has the range of financial products that will allow the maximum number of businesses to take advantage of the considerable benefits of leasing Rational appliances.”
