PCI Auction Group, located in Manheim, PA, is one the nation’s largest online restaurant equipment auction companies. Jared Mizrahi, the 30-year-old owner, has been in the auction business since he was 12 years old. He started his first business selling golf balls on eBay that he had retrieved from ponds, streams, and fields on golf courses. After graduating from Millersville University, he started teaching Mathematics at J.P. McCaskey and Manheim Township High Schools, all while simultaneously running his eBay businesses.
In 2013, Mizrahi decided to focus on PCI Auction Group full time. PCI was recently named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The company now has over 16 offices nationwide, and facilitates the liquidation of assets from 1,000+ restaurants and retail spaces each year. The service provided is a valuable resource for clients who are seeking to recoup capital from unused restaurant and commercial assets due to concept changes, remodels and closures. PCI has the capability to remove/disassemble any and all restaurant equipment including hoods, walk-ins, and rack ovens and bring it back to their warehouse to list the items in an online auction. They have helped national companies such as Subway, Papa John’s Pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts, Joe’s Crab Shack, Ruby Tuesday, Wawa, and more recently Au Bon Pain liquidate their assets.
The site is also a valuable resource for anyone outfitting an entire restaurant, remodeling in a cost-effective manner or for anyone buying restaurant-related equipment for their home, garage, hunting cabin, etc. Most items start at a penny and are listed without reserves.
