We believe in supporting our local community and helping bolster the economy of our locations. Since SAM is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, joining Local First Arizona, whose mission is to make Arizona a better place by supporting locally owned businesses and building vibrant communities that residents are proud to call home, was a natural step. This month, Local First Arizona is showcasing SAM’s benefits to small businesses in an article titled “How to Start Your Small Local Business on a Budget.”
“You have the dream, the vision and the concept of your small local business all laid out, but the costs of starting a new business can be the one roadblock you have in your path. The new retail prices of things like commercial grade kitchen equipment, shelving, storage, seating, decor and more can make that dream of starting your own business seem like an impossibility. But don’t give up on that dream just yet; there are other ways to stock your business with all the equipment you need without having to spend a fortune.
Surplus Asset Management, or SAM Auctions, offers the cost effective alternative to purchasing those brand new commercial grade items. Surplus Asset Management Chief Strategy Officer, Ben Smith points out the benefits for small businesses of buying their commercial equipment from SAM: “at Surplus Asset Management, businesses can find products and equipment at less than half the retail price, meaning they can put more money back into their capital accounts.” In other words, people looking to start their own small business, or expand their current one, are able to purchase the equipment they need at a fraction of the cost if purchased new.”
