All too often, most restaurateurs leave money on the table, and it is not in the form of a tip. They do not take advantage of the easy money in filling out a rebate form from their state for purchasing selected pieces of commercial kitchen equipment, HVAC, and new LED lighting.
Let’s assume you’re remodeling your kitchen, replacing older or non-functioning equipment with new, energy-efficient appliances.
Consider this list of equipment:
• 1 36” gas fired griddle
• 2 15” gas fired fryers
• 1 compact combi oven stacked on a convection oven
• 2 heated holding cabinets
• 1 two-section reach-in refrigerator
• 1 two section reach-in freezer
• 1 500-lb ice machine
• 1 door-type commercial warewasher
This bundle of commercial kitchen equipment would be valued at just over $37,000. But what many forget is the total rebates available to you for the purchase above represents anywhere from a 6-7% price reduction! Depending on the pricing you and your dealer procure, that’s like getting a convection oven or a fryer free! Coupled with the multiple purchase bonuses provided for buying 2 or more pieces, you save even more. Including lighting and HVAC, the savings grow.
