Commercial Equipment Wholesalers


The 3,400 commercial equipment wholesalers in the US sell and distribute equipment and supplies used in restaurants, hotels, and retail stores, except for computers and office equipment and refrigeration units. In addition to selling equipment and supplies, firms may also provide installation and maintenance services.

Dependence on Health of Foodservice Sector

About two-thirds of the commercial equipment wholesaler industry’s revenue comes from foodservice equipment and supplies, so they are highly dependent on the health of the foodservice industry.

Smaller Equipment Footprints

Foodservice equipment manufacturers are developing new smaller models that combine multiple functions and take up less space.
