How Our Chefs Help You Discover the Perfect Equipment
With experience working in all types of restaurants before coming to One Source, these two chefs know the ins and outs of their profession. Their passion for cooking and helping others shines through in every aspect of their work.
Both chefs agreed that when they were working in restaurants, they would have jumped at the opportunity to visit a test kitchen to explore and experiment with equipment before committing to a purchase. Now, they have changed the game for you. Imagine spending quality time with seasoned professionals who can help you choose the best equipment for your needs, all before you invest a single dime.
Everyone wants to find the best deal in today's competitive foodservice landscape. One Source Reps understands that, and they are here to help. "Our test kitchen provides you with a risk-free environment to figure out which equipment works best for you," shared Chef Chris. "Whether you're a small-scale operation or a larger establishment, there's a solution for everyone."
It's More Than Just a Sale – It's a Relationship
One Source Reps isn't just in the business of selling equipment — they're in the business of establishing relationships built on trust. Their goal is to assist you in making your food better. Customers are encouraged to reach out with questions, not only regarding equipment, but cooking and menu advice as well.
"We have seen a lot of dynamics and different equipment setups in commercial kitchens," explained Chef Chris. "Maybe you don't need a new piece of equipment. Maybe it is an issue with space and reutilization of food equipment you already have. We're not going to sell you something you don't need. We're going to do the right thing by you."
Take the Test Drive
"No one buys a car without test-driving it first, right? Well, the same logic applies to kitchen equipment," said Chef Peter. "You try something out in the test kitchen, and you should test it for everything that you will use it for. We are singularly focused on being your resource."
In addition to hosting groups in their test kitchen, One Source Reps hosts 3-4 in-house events, educating existing and potential customers on the 50+ brands they represent. One Source Reps regularly attends industry shows to remain knowledgeable about manufacturers and equipment they represent. Chef Chris, travels to the MIK (Middleby's Innovation Kitchen), keeping a close eye on emerging trends in the industry. This means you get to stay ahead of the curve with the latest and greatest equipment innovations.
Chef Peter and Chef Chris, along with the team at One Source Reps, are eager to assist you in identifying the perfect equipment for your needs; all in the comfort of a fully equipped, conveniently located test kitchen.
