Buddy Started in 2016 when Will's (CEO) buddy needed to fund a coffee machine for his first cafe. The pair soon recognised a need for an alternative finance option focusing on high-end coffee equipment.
Buddy has grown organically over the years and now provides alternative funding solutions to over 500 venues across Australia, partners with some of Australia's top coffee roasters, resellers and first-time cafe owners.
"We used buddy for our Mahlkonig Ek 43 to enable us to offer a rotating single origin. Buddy has been easy to use and affordable."
"Buddy has allowed Left Field to choose the coffee supplier it works with and negotiate the best rate. We estimate using buddy is saving us $250+ a week."
"Although wine is our main focus, great coffee is important to us. By Buddy supplying our machinery, it has allowed us to work with the coffee supplier we wanted to complete our offering."
