Rational has launched a scheme that makes it possible for operators to lease an iCombi Pro or iVario from as little as £5 per day.
The company said the Rational Leasing Scheme is designed to be as flexible as possible, to allow for different budgets, cash flows and aspirations.
Rational has put the package together with CF Capital, one of the UK’s largest sales aid leasing and financial services organisations.
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.
Simon Lohse, managing director of Rational UK, said: “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 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.
