We Understand School Nutrition Departments

Deeply understanding the education food service industry gives us the ability to provide you with professional suggestions to help you make informed decisions that keep your project on time and within your budget.

Our Around-the-Globe Network

Our foodservice experts will coordinate with our director of purchasing and operations to get you the exact equipment you’re looking for. The relationships we have established with manufacturers around the world allow you to get the highest quality equipment for the lowest possible cost. We don’t push a certain brand, make or model of appliance or equipment on you like some supply companies. Instead, we go directly to the source to find the perfect solution for your unique project.

Our commitment to effective communication means we will keep you in the loop throughout every stage of your construction process. If we anticipate delivery issues or problems that will affect the timeline of your project, we will communicate them as soon as possible and do everything we can to keep your project running smoothly – and on time.

Services and Construction Specific to Your Nutrition Department Needs

At 1st Choice Restaurant Equipment & Supply, we know every kitchen’s design and nature is unique. That is why our all-inclusive services are customizable to your specific needs. We are confident when we say the key to constructing a successful department of educational nutrition begins with choosing the right team to collaborate with.
