Restaurant Equippers has announced plans to open its third warehouse store this summer to serve the Northeast region of the country.
The Columbus, Ohio–based company has begun construction on the 40,000-square-foot state-of-the-art store at The Point in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
Restaurant Equippers’ focus on strategic expansion led to the selection of the Greater Philadelphia market for its newest location.
Restaurant Equippers operates warehouse stores providing name-brand manufacturer-warranted foodservice equipment, buyouts and special purchases, and a complete inventory of restaurant supplies.
The company already has a strong customer base in the region with clients from Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Maryland.
In addition, the warehouse can be serviced from Restaurant Equipper’s 200,000-square-foot distribution center in Ohio.
While the company’s primary customer base is the foodservice industry, it makes products available to the general public, as well. In fact, the family-run business is well known to the mom and pop and independent restaurants owners that it has been catering to for more than 40 years.
Restaurant Equippers offers a large inventory of in-stock items to help customers get up and running fast and to maintain their businesses with the equipment and supplies when they need them.
Customers can visit one of the three warehouse stores located in Columbus, Ohio; Southfield, Michigan; and now Greater Philadelphia. The can also shop online or call their National Order Office. The company mails more than 3 million catalogues to more than 800,000 businesses annually.
“The Greater Philadelphia store will provide tremendous opportunities not only to expand our presence in the region, but also to deliver our brand of service and product offerings to a broader base of customers looking for a reliable supplier,” says Restaurant Equippers president Larry Dach. “We currently work with a number of independent restaurants in the region and are confident others will shop our store for our expansive inventory, competitive pricing, and exemplary service.”
A tentative opening date is set for late July 2013. Restaurant Equippers expects to employ 15–20 people at the new store.
