Financing with Credit Key Through Burkett

Our time spent together was a great learning opportunity for our staff! This hands-on experience has enabled us to swiftly facilitate the approval of financing for several customers through Credit Key.

We had the opportunity to follow up with one of our first Credit Key customers this week to learn a little more about their business and the impact of this program.

Omar Sowe of Issa’s Pizza in Ypsilanti, MI opened his business just over a year ago.

He learned of Burkett from our partners at SofoFoods and was excited to discover Credit Key financing when making his most recent purchase, a new Turbochef BULLET Rapid Cook Oven.

“Credit Key is most definitely the way to go. It was so easy and simple. Really just fantastic. Instantly knowing exactly how much I was going to get and how the process worked. Both Burkett and Credit Key were very proactive and involved through it all,” said Sowe when asked about his experience with Credit Key and the purchasing experience.
