Our test-kitchen in Mendota Heights is a great way for you to see our equipment in action and test your concept or recipe. Our kitchen is staffed with our in-house chef to answer any questions, provide menu item ideas or to share the profit potential of our equipment. To schedule a demo please contact your sales representative below and let him know what equipment you would like to test out. If you don’t have a sales representative please contact Justin LaVille. We look forward to seeing you at our test kitchen.

Please note if Mendota Heights is too far of a drive we can bring our mobile kitchen to you.
