Hobart dealers are getting the right buying signs from customers following the manufacturer’s introduction of a 12-month, interest-free payment plan on warewashing equipment.
Under the terms of the package, caterers are offered the incentive of purchasing the latest warewashing technology without a large upfront investment.
Hobart described it as the best finance programme it has ever provided, and it would seem dealers agree.
Stuart Bester, business manager of Hobart Independent, insists distributors have voiced their approval.
“Dealers have already fed back to us that it is going down a storm with their customers and we look forward to more positive reaction in the coming months,” he said.
Subject to credit approval, the interest-free deal is available to caterers only through Hobart dealers.
“The deal provides the perfect tonic for caterers who have been thinking about investing in new equipment to make the switch without a large initial outlay,” said Bester.
This year marks the 11th that Hobart Independent has been in operation after it was launched as a dealer-only business. The company specialises in the lower to mid-tier warewashing equipment with its Bar Aid and Ecomax ranges and Bester says sales are on track to show a strong double-digit improvement this year.
“It’s been an incredible journey, the amount of progress the business has made in a relatively short space of time is phenomenal. Hobart Independent has experienced a consistent growth of over 25% for the past four years, long may it continue,” he said.
“We pride ourselves on providing everything the dealers need to successfully sell our machines, be it technical, sales or product-related support. As we move into a new year we plan to focus on getting even more dealers to come for training at our purpose-built training centre in Peterborough.”
