“We’ve been working with Guardian for more than 15 years now. Most of our clients are brand new restaurants and cafes – so difficult to approve, but Guardian is actually a lease broker, so they find companies who are willing to work with the industry.  Almost everyone gets approved, some way somehow.  They are very thorough and polite with our customers.”
