We are a husband and wife team who is dedicated to saving you money by providing quality, clean, and dependable used restaurant equipment for your new or existing food service operation.

We know first hand what it takes to start up a new food service business. Our family owned and operated a bakery for over 15 years. Like you, we put in long hours, dealt with lots of aggravation, and took home very little pay. We bought most of our commercial bakery equipment used, yet we still struggled for the first 5 years. If we had bought our equipment new, we wouldn’t have survived through the first year.

But now we’re out of the bakery business. We’ve found our little niche in life and have filled it with optimistic thoughts and prayers for the success of our customers.

We believe that hard work, positive thinking, fair dealing, the right treatment of people and having fun will always get desired results. We love what we do and enjoy the company of our customers, fellow business associates and friends.

You may have heard the grim statistic that 90% of all new restaurants close within their first year in business. Our goal and business purpose is to save you money – often times as much as 50% or more – on quality, used commercial food service equipment, allowing you to preserve critical working capital to keep your operation thriving.

Anyone can sell you new restaurant equipment – just go online and take your pick. If you`re looking for someone who can save you money on good, clean, dependable used, commercial grade equipment, often over 50% off of the cost of new equipment, give us a call. We’d be glad to help you with your food equipment needs.

Regardless of whether you need restaurant, bakery, catering, pizza, bar, deli or coffee equipment – new or used – you’ve come to the right restaurant equipment dealer. Our fine customers come from all over Northeast Ohio, including Akron, Canton, Massillon, Medina, Cleveland, Warren, Youngstown & Toledo. With our convenient location, we’re still close enough for customers in Western Pennsylvania and New York, Southern Michigan and Eastern Indiana too.

We also offer used restaurant equipment appraisals, consignment sales and trade-ins. You can find us online regularly on eBay, Craigslist and our Facebook page “The Equipment Connection LTD”. Whether you have a few items that you no longer need or an entire storage unit filled with equipment, we accept ‘consignment equipment’ in good, clean, working condition for our retail, on-site store.


If you are considering closing or selling your business, please take a minute to call us for a free consultation. We`ll be glad to offer suggestions on how to best handle your situation and protect your investment.
