Carolyn Armstrong, of Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery, recently shared this testimonial about her company’s experience with United States Capital Corporation:
“We truly enjoyed our experience working with US Capital to finance our POS system update for our restaurant. We found Laura Bentley to be genuine, conscientious and very attentive to our budgetary concerns and equipment leasing questions.
US Capital offered creative and flexible payment terms to fit our operating budget. We actually ended up saving time and money we would not have if we had pursued financing with our bank. We would definitely use US Capital for future equipment financing needs! You could not find a nicer group of people to work with. ”
Carolyn Armstrong, Owner
For all of your financing or leasing needs, call US Capital at 866-590-8506. We look forward to hearing from you!
