This article discusses the factors considered by a convenience store retailer before choosing to acquire food-service equipment. One factor that can make a significant difference in the cost equation is the choice between leasing and buying. Jack Cushman, vice president of food-service for Nice N Easy Grocery Shoppes Inc., a store operator based in Canastota, New York compares the decision to buy or lease food-service equipment to the decision to buy or rent a home. According to Cushman, a lease is more suited to convenience store retailers interested in only testing a food-service program or whose main concern is cash flow.
