Nebraska Prep Equipment was founded by Cory Hart and Jamison Wallman in late 2017. While building their last catering kitchen for their then, 5 year old catering business, they were faced with the task of sourcing quality used equipment to stay within budget. Cory and Jamison found that quality used equipment was few and far between locally so they broadened their search area and found a great amount of quality used equipment in the larger cities throughout the Midwest. Instead of keeping this treasure hidden, Jamison and Cory decided to start transporting this equipment back to Southeast Nebraska, cleaning the equipment and reselling it at a fair price to other food service companies in the area. Nebraska Prep Equipment started to gain traction and the option for new equipment was added to our inventory eventually leading to offering new equipment with manufacturer warranty as well as occasional new scratch and dent units at a discounted price.
