LEAF Commercial Capital, Inc. (“LEAF” or the “Company”), a specialized equipment leasing and financing company headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, today announced its selection as a preferred financing partner for Burger King Corporation in support of the deployment of its Next Generation Kitchen.
The Next Generation Kitchen is an economically viable, highly efficient engineered design that incorporates the latest equipment technologies. The new design will yield higher capacity and will enable faster production times. Other benefits include improved food quality, food safety and increased menu flexibility. Reducing operating costs is also a primary concern. LEAF will offer its comprehensive line of financing solutions and services to BURGER KING® franchisees in the U.S. to take full advantage of the redesigned kitchen today.
“After conducting a comprehensive RFP process, Burger King Corporation selected LEAF as one of its vendors because of our experience within the BURGER KING® System and our tailored options designed to maximize the benefits of Next Generation Kitchen Equipment,” said Crit DeMent, Chairman and CEO of LEAF. “A recognized industry leader, LEAF has perfected the financing process for franchisees with fast credit decisions, online tools to apply and manage their account 24/7 and dedicated account professionals that are there to help with all of their financing needs.”
LEAF’s award winning technology platform combined with extensive experience supporting both franchisors and franchisees uniquely positions the company for this Burger King Corporation initiative. “We will work closely with both single and multi-unit operators to meet their specific financing needs,” said DeMent. “Our highly experienced equipment financing professionals will support them at every step along the way.” DeMent further explained that LEAF created a website specifically for BURGER KING® franchisees to gather additional information, apply and manage their account.
