Fusco said that he has already signed some accounts that have signed up to the platform, which, he said, is operated on a commission basis only.

“Sellers and buyers do not have to pay a registration or monthly fee to have an account,” he said.

Fusco, who also works a as beverage manager, said that he believes there is a market since “that many places are closing and the owners don’t know what to do with their stuff. On the platform they can connect with buyers.”
