Furnishing your commercial kitchen can be a daunting project
and can put a huge dent in your wallet. But there’s good news – you can avoid
such wretched fate! Used commercial kitchen appliances can save you money, and ACityDiscount
is the reputable, trustworthy dealer that can help you save big bucks today!
1. Save Money
The top reason to purchase used commercial kitchen equipment
is the money saving benefits. This is a great option for new restaurant owners
on a small or limited budget seeking equipment for a start up bar, restaurant
or commercial kitchen. This allows the excess money to be utilized in other important
areas. A new restaurant owner can enjoy the perk of furnishing their commercial
kitchen with top brands for a fraction of the price it would cost to do so
otherwise. Now, that’s pretty unbeatable.
2. Like-New Equipment
The unfortunate statistics show that 30% of food service businesses
fail in the first year and a staggering 60% fail in the first 3 years. Of
course, not yours – we totally believe in you! But what this means is that many
used appliances are so gently used, that
you can get like new equipment for a steal! Often in these situations,
equipment has been well maintained and reconditioned. Sometimes your used
equipment will even come with a valid, transferrable warranty – just ask!
3. Decreased Value Depreciation
The value of your equipment won’t depreciate at the same rate as a
brand new appliance would. A new piece of equipment drops drastically in value
the moment it begins service.
4. Tax Break
Did you know that both new and used equipment qualifies for Section 179 deduction?
This IRS Tax Code allows a business to deduct, for the current tax year,
the full purchase price of equipment that qualifies for the
5. Environmental Benefits
If you are an environmentally conscious buyer, consider
buying used restaurant supplies as a form of recycling. Most restaurant
equipment is reusable, down to the POS system! Why not go the whole 9 yards and work on
making your restaurant green as well?
Used Restaurant Equipment Best Practices
Be sure to purchase your used equipment from a reputable
dealer with experience. Companies who specialize in the selling of appliances
have a higher reputation to uphold than a private seller and often the stakes
are higher so you can count on honesty about your used product.
ACityDiscount has been offering quality used equipment from
top for over 40 years!
Large, pricey items such as refrigeration and cooking
equipment are great places to start
with purchasing used equipment. Gas ranges and ovens have easily
replaceable parts, giving them a long lifespan, which is a good feature when
considering used commercial kitchen equipment. Tableware such as dinnerware,
glasses, decanters, vases, salt and pepper shakers, etc. can all be purchased
second hand with confidence.
Save Big and Win
After purchasing your used commercial kitchen equipment, you
have saved money to utilize in other areas such as staff payroll, marketing,
and emergency instances. You have a fully furnished establishment with top
brand items. You have the security of knowing that you can get a great ROI if
you ever need to re-sell your equipment, and you may be eligible for a tax
break. Now give yourself a pat on the back - you have done well.
