Founder / CEO
Equipment Jedi – BSF Founder - CEO
Constantin was born into a family of restauranteurs in 1979. And BSF Restaurant Equipment was born in a 2 car garage in Saskatoon in 2016. Like a lot of great businesses BSF was started by accident. Constantin got a taste for buying and sellin’ or “Flippin’ things” as he calls it, on Kijiji. He started out with Washers, Dryers other residential appliances & furniture. That eventually lead him to restaurant equipment. He would scroll Kijiji all day every day and scoop up every good deal as soon as it came up. He would bring used dirty appliances back to life with precision detailing and it would shine in his garage for everyone who came by to see. It seemed like in no time the people of Saskatoon & surrounding area were flocking to his garage to check out his equipment. His phone was quite literally ringing off the hook. Restauranteurs from all over the province were calling with equipment lists and the rest is history! After about a year and a half of selling out of this garage it looked as though Constantin had found himself a niche market. Up until then there was nowhere to find used restaurant equipment in all of Saskatchewan. And coincidentally Saskatoon has the highest restaurants per capita in Canada, so it was a no brainer for Constantin to take the leap and turn this hobby of his into a business. So armed with a garage full of equipment, some kijiji ads, a bunch of equipment lists and business plan, he took the leap and the rest is history! BSF has truly snowballed into something amazing they and now offer New & warrantied used equipment, as well as in house and on location Service department. Constantin has been working on a cool new project and in October 2021 BSF Auctions was launched! Check out the sales for a lot of amazing deals! Keep a close eye on this guy, there’s just no telling what Constantin & BSF will be up to next.
– Sales – Auction – Service & Parts –
Just over 3 years ago, Constantin hit the employee lottery when he came across an ad for a young lady looking for some part time work. (Shhhh… don’t tell her we speak so highly of her or she’ll ask us for more money, Haha)
After a brief interview, Amanda was hired to create herself a position at BSF and Constantin finally got the opportunity to take a day off from time to time. Amanda jumped in with both feet. Amanda stated in her interview that she had no previous restaurant equipment sales experience, but she that she’s “Eaten at a lot of restaurants, and has some sales experience, so how hard can the gig really be?” Haha. So that was that, and Amanda was officially the 2nd employee to join the Buy Sell Find team and what an impact she’s had! Her unparalleled customer service, leadership & organizational skills, paired with her drive to learn everything and anything about the restaurant equipment business is just what we needed! If she doesn’t know the answer, she’ll find it! Amanda was definitely the missing piece to our puzzle. Send us an email, fire us off a text or give us a call and Amanda will be there to help you out. Sales, Parts, Service, Shipping, Receiving, Auction (YEP, this lady literally does it all!)
Finance & Administration
Five years ago Brooke was swept off her feet by our very own, Constantin. Brooke and Constantin always joked that it would be their dream to work together. In July 2019 she quit her job at the U of S, moved into an office @ BSF Headquarters, hung her fancy framed masters degree on the wall, and has been studying deep fryers and baking ovens ever since! In fact, she probably knows more than Constantin about most things!
Before Brooke joined the team Constantin was… welll… jusssssssst a litttttle unorganized! Brooke spent the first 4 months hunting down 87,642 missing receipts from the past 4 years that Colleen couldn’t coax out of him, and then started building company policies and processes. Things have been sailing a lot smoother and we are all happier for it!
We love having Brooke around. Besides being smart, she also funny, quirky, creative aaand our personal favorite … she is the Department of No and destroyer of Constantin’s crazy ideas and won’t let him start up any more businesses for a while. We’re thankful she balances him out. We hope Brooke sticks around here, and we’re all hoping that Constantin pops the question soon! ????
Customer Service Specialist
Jayde started out at BSF back in October 2020 – Yes we hired her as soon as we moved into our fancy new location on Lambert Cres.
Her father, Mark is of of “the regulars” here at BSF and had mentioned to us that she would be a good fit to our team. She knew a bit about restaurant equipment because she owns an online donut business and she really liked dogs. Believe it or not, as outside the box we are at BSF job interviews are generally pretty straight forward around here. But in Jayde’s case, things were a little unique… We found out “after” we hired her that during her interview our shop dog, Louis, licked her leg the entire 30 minutes! And we didn’t even know! Haha. She said she had to keep moving around so he wouldn’t lick her legs but she didn’t want to make it awkward so she just sat there. What a trooper! After an interview like that – she joined the team. And she’s been sellin’ up a storm ever since! Not only is she great at customer service, she also brings in fresh donuts for the team.
Our Awesome Bookeeper
After unsuccessfully trying to do my own books and losing 76% of my hair in the process I decided I’d better leave this task to a pro. After 8,763 interviews Colleen was our #1 choice!
Her balanced books, amazing personality, love of wine and her famous “WHERE ARE THESE MISSSING RECEEEIPTS!?!?!?!?” phone calls are more than worth the money we pay her!!
Fin loves to clean all of our equipment!
The warehouse muscle man!
