Our History

It was at a US trade show in 1985 that the idea for Silver Chef was born.With the American home delivery pizza market booming, Allan English, Silver Chef’s founder and Managing Director, and a business partner, were convinced of the market’s potential for growth in Australia, so they invested heavily in conveyor ovens.

Unfortunately, it soon became clear that many pizza businesses could not afford to buy them. The solution? The ovens were rented out, and soon began to sell themselves.

Ten years later, Allan bought out his partner and devised a funding option that enabled small businesses to procure the equipment they needed, without committing large amounts of capital up-front. The new option, called Rent-Try-Buy, has been at the center of the Silver Chef success story ever since.

Silver Chef Limited listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2005 and since that time customer demand its unique and flexible funding model for has led to Silver Chef being recognized as one of Australia’s fastest growing companies.  

Today, over 25,000 customers have used the Silver Chef Rent-Try-Buy solution to fund their equipment and has offices in AustraliaNew Zealand and Canada.
