In 1986, entrepreneur Allan English discovered a new style of pizza oven in the US. Back in Australia, hospitality businesses wanted the ovens but struggled to find the capital to buy them. Facing disaster, Allan had a brainwave – he offered the pizza ovens to rent so that customers could try them before committing. This was the birth of SilverChef and the Rent-Try-Buy® product we offer today. The experience of giving hospitality entrepreneurs a helping hand eventually led to SilverChef’s purpose of helping people achieve their dreams in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and around the world.
