Article Date: 2018-01-03
National wholesaler JJ Food Service has supported UK restaurants and takeaways with a total of £500K interest-free credit since the launch of the JJ Food Service Mastercard* just 12-weeks ago.
"The prospect of starting a new restaurant or takeaway can be daunting when considering how to manage costs, particularly with banks getting tougher on loans”, said JJ Food Service CEO Mustafa Kiamil.
"That’s why we launched the JJ Food Service Mastercard – to support independents.” The card is already helping many caterers and food outlets, from brand new businesses to established restaurants.
It can be used to pay for everything from petrol and utilities to catering supplies, including food from competitor wholesalers. "We don’t mind where customers use the card –as long as it helps their business to thrive,” said Mr Kiamil.
