Silver Chef History

Silver Chef was founded by Allan English who was also the Managing Director and a business partner to invest in conveyor ovens on seeing the boom of American home delivery pizza market and its potential for growth in Australia. Soon he realised that many pizza businesses can not afford to buy ovens so he decided to rent them out. After ten years Allan bought out his partner and introduced a funding option - Rent-Try-Buy® that allowed small businesses to acquire their required equipment without committing large amounts of capital up-front. Since SIV's listing on the ASX in 2005, the availability of further capital and customer demand has resulted in an average growth rate of the last four years at 50% per year.
