Direct Business Lenders

Bertha Ovens is an example of a small business that applied for a Fair Business Loan. The owner, Spyros Alexander, manufactures high-quality ovens straight out of his Wimbledon workshop, selling these charcoal ovens to restaurants and professional kitchens. Offering an alternative to more expensive competitors, Spyros is a confident salesman and manufacturer and we were impressed by his professionalism upon visiting his workshop. He showed us the process involved in making one of these ovens, from the welding and assembling to the logistical side of selling his product.

Additionally, he demonstrated the expansion potential of the business—reaching into the new trend of fine chargrilled cooking methods. His passion for the product and its expansion potential impressed our team, prompting us to give him a loan enabling him to import more stock for assembling and selling his high-quality ovens, as well as demonstrate its uses at various industry shows. Business Loans Officer Bassel Deeb was impressed by Spyros’ salesmanship and confidence in his product. We feel privileged to have been able to help Spyros in his professional career.

Bertha Ovens has received praise from food critics such as Giles Corens, who upon reviewing John Doe in Notting Hill stated ‘Out of Bertha’s glowing belly came some extremely good stuff.’ If you own a restaurant, or know someone who does, this professional and award-winning oven is a great addition to your kitchen.
