Our location, conveniently located near I-80 and I-55, is set up to make selecting the right items more accessible. Our large, brightly lit warehouse space is designed to display items for easy viewing. We only accept items that are in good condition, working order, and clean.   (Click here to see some of our items, but there are a lot more!)

Established in 1951, the parent company of American Restaurant Equipment Sales was one of the first resellers of restaurant equipment.  Using an auction format, new owners acquired equipment, fixtures and furniture from restaurants and banquet halls throughout the Midwest.

Today, following a trend that started on the West Coast, American Restaurant Sales offers items from restaurants, commercial kitchens and households directly to our customers. This method eliminates the expense and constraints of scheduled auctions. It offers sellers the option of setting fair prices and gives buyers the flexibility and convenience of coming to our facility to browse and acquire the items they need, as many as they need, when they need them.  We  offer pick-up and delivery options to both buyers and sellers.

Sellers: If you need to sell restaurant, commercial or even household items, we can help.

Buyers: You no longer have to wait to find items you want or need.  Come into our spacious, bright showroom to see the latest items available.

Whether you are opening or closing a restaurant, commercial establishment or a household, we can help.  Please contact us for more information on our new way of doing business.
