Why You Should Buy Catering Equipment at Auction

Catering equipment is said to be the second largest expense of any food outlet – not surprising when you consider what the start-up cost for a new restaurant might be, and this will vary considerably depending on the size and type of restaurant that is planned. So how can these costs be reduced?

The restaurant trade is challenging and extremely competitive, with new sites opening and existing sites closing on a daily basis. This churn in the hospitality trade makes it possible to access some great products at auction.

Buyers can benefit from being able to purchase goods which might previously have been outside of their budget, accessing catering equipment which is in perfect working order – anything from an industrial mixer to a professional coffee machine. At Hilditch we often have items available which are previously unused, such as pan and cutlery sets, and a wider offering such as furniture and storage kit.

Please let us know if you are looking for a particular piece of equipment, and take a look at the full range available on our sale pages
