History (repeats itself) History.
Since 1972 Pecinka Ferri has been providing Equipment and Supplies solutions to the foodservice industry.
We are in good company!
The year was 1848.
James Polk was the 11th president of the United States.
Gold was discovered in California.
And Gardner S. Blodgett built his first oven for a local Vermont tavern owner.
Things would never be the same in California … or the foodservice industry.
Today, Blodgett is the leading manufacturer of commercial ovens in the world.
Restaurants, fast-food chains, hotels, hospitals, institutions, small businesses and large corporations alike rely on the Blodgett name.
In fact, our ovens have been in demand overseas since the late 1800s – long before global markets and international trade became the focus of our modern world.
Despite widespread success (or maybe because of it) Blodgett has never strayed from its original goal or its roots.
Blodgett is located in Burlington, Vermont – just 1-1/2 miles from where the company founder and namesake forged a cooking revolution in cast iron over 150 years ago.
And while the times and foodservice needs have changed since then, our commitment to building the best remains the same.
Better from the start
Since 1949, Server has helped foodservice operators everywhere find smart, efficient and sustainable ways to serve fresh food, better.
It began at the movie theater, where operators needed an easier way to melt and serve butter for their freshly popped popcorn.
We went to work, designing the industry’s first automatic butter warmer and dispenser.
Building on our success at the movies, we continued to work with foodservice operators to develop progressive dispensing and point-of-use equipment that solved their everyday serving challenges.
Honesty and integrity helped nurture each new relationship, while reliable products and personal service kept the business growing. More
The company’s strong roots in European culture have shaped the development of a premium brand that is now a household name all over the world, from its foundation in 1748 to the present day. Villeroy & Boch is now represented in over 125 countries with its Bathroom and Wellness and Tableware products. The group’s headquarters is the Old Abbey in Mettlach in the Saarland region of Germany.
Jean François Boch, the third generation of the Boch family, purchased the Benedictine abbey in 1809.
