In 1986, our founder, Rob Foster had a pick-up truck and one piece of used restaurant equipment for sale. His love of the business and working with local customers drove him to buy more used pieces of equipment and expand his business from the ground up. It wasn’t long until he added new equipment and inventory to his showroom, covering a larger area not only in Western North Carolina, but South Carolina and Tennessee as well.

Fast forward three decades…

In 2014 Sam Foster joined the team as CAD layout designer and began his career in the family business. After learning every phase of the business from design to delivery, he is now Director of Operations. Sam brings a passion for creating the best in customer relationships and a win win for everyone in each project from start to finish. With two generations of the Foster family here, we commit daily to serving the needs of our restaurant community.
