My name is Sean Kearney and I warehouse and directly source New Restaurant Equipment at Used Prices for your commercial kitchen needs.

There always seems to be a glut of used restaurant equipment for sale in the Chicago area, and for the budget minded restaurateur, the lure of almost new looking piece of restaurant equipment can be tempting.  Usually the used equipment is sold "as is," with no warranty or possibility of a refund if it breaks down or needs repairs days after your purchase. In the end you don't wind up with anything equivalent to a new machine.

Chicago Restaurant Equipment offers New Restaurant Equipment at Used Prices.

My prices are below food service industry pricing. Why are my prices so low? The question should be - Why are some of my competitor's prices so high? Most of my competitors market their products thru salesmen or affiliate schemes that drive prices up drastically. If a company pays out 20 to 50% commissions to it’s salesmen that would double or in some cases triple the cost of their products. Also, when you purchase directly from a specialty distributor, you will always get a better price than buying from a large food service distributor. Then again this just my opinion on the matter.

All Refrigerators, Freezers, and Prep Tables come with a 2 to 3 Year Parts and Labor Warranty. Plus an additional 5 Year Warranty on all compressors.

My professionally grade stainless steel Pizza Prep Tables and Sandwich Prep Tables are built for the Iconic Chicago Deep Dish Pizza, Chicago Style Hot Dogs and The Italian Beef Sandwich.  All prep tables come with cutting boards and heavy duty stainless steel anti-jam pans and not those cheap plastic pans.

All the restaurant equipment that I offer for sale are Intertek ETL Listed and NSF compliant to North American product safety standards and required sanitation standards. All the electronic parts are CE certified. 

The selection of refrigerators and freezers are tasteful and elegant for any demanding Chef. Ergonomic designed to complement your kitchen. The Traditional American inspired designed recessed door handles, rounded door edge, and the rounded interior corner are constructed for day-to-day use. The refrigeration systems matched and balanced oversized, high efficient compressor use of advanced technologies and components creates an environmentally friendly refrigeration system with shorter run times, lower energy consumption, and the coldest holding temperatures.

All Griddles, Char Broilers, and Deep Fryers come with a 1 Year Parts and Labor Warranty. Plus an additional 5 Year Warranty on all oil drums.

Chicago's indie food trucks can lower their costs with my selection of propane griddles, char broilers, deep fryers and space saving under counter freezers and under counter refrigerators.


My restaurant equipment company is a profitable and not a rapidly growing corporation, but we are a one man start-up armed with a lap top, adobe photoshop, excel spreadsheets, an iPhone, iPad, secure wifi, a shared secured server, free marketing via social media, and e-commerce applications compliments of Craigslist, eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Square, Godaddy and Youtube.


I feel it is my fiduciary duty to be profitable to ensure I will be around for the long term to continue to support my customers, but I also feel it also important to offer my customers ongoing support for their business. I am not running a company that needs to invest profits in technology. The companies that I am partnered with are all pay on performance companies that have invested heavily and continue to invest in technology. Their job is to bring customers to my products and to keep my customers data and information secure.

The profit margin I make is well below the industry standard, but I am able to grow with low overhead as I sell direct via the internet, and pass the savings on to our customers.
