- About Us -
Our family has been in the food service industry in one form or another for over 85 years.
My grandfather built a restaurant and bakery business in Hartford, Connecticut which he successfully ran for many years. My father worked for him as a school boy and eventually full time. In the 1980's my father began a food service management company in Hartford. In 1985, due to redevelopment, they were forced to close my grandfather's business. He took this opportunity to retire and my father continued to run the food service management business and expanded into sandwich shops until 2001, at which time he retired.
My father, being a very hands on and hardworking guy, quickly grew bored of retirement and started Hartford Restaurant Equipment. He ran our business for 14 years before "retiring" again and handing the business over to me. He continues to oversee and guide me and our company.
As you can see, our experience in the business ranges from owning restaurants and bakeries to catering, corporate feeding, executive catering and even vending, as well as in guiding customers in the purchase of the right equipment for their facilities.
In the early 2000's, people began inquiring about putting commercial ranges in their homes because they were less expensive than residential ranges. Because commercial ranges aren't suited for residential use, we found an opportunity to expand into residential equipment finding commercial-style ranges that were good quality and reasonably priced. We now carry several lines of good quality and reasonably priced, as well as high end, residential appliances.
We pride ourselves on our customer service. Call us or email us and we will always respond to you personally with all of the information and guidance you need.
Who better to help guide you for your equipment needs than a company that encompasses all of the knowledge of owning their own restaurants and bakeries, and has years of hands-on experience using the types of equipment we are selling? We understand your needs as a food service professional and are looking forward to working with you.
