We're a family business!
Dave Flanagan started iFoodEquipment in 2011 with the goal of being an online retailer from coast to coast.
He didn't have investors, inventory, or very many suppliers. The only employees he had was his youngest son and a bookkeeper (who quit within a couple months).
But with 25 years experience behind him in the restaurant and bakery equipment industry, and with some hard work and stubbornness, he was able to will iFoodEquipment into reality.
With the help of a growing number of dedicated staff, less than ten years later iFoodEquipment is one of the top online retailers for restaurant equipment and supplies in Canada, with distribution warehouses in BC, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, and with showrooms in Moncton and Halifax.
Yet through it all, Dave has kept iFoodEquipment a family business. His sons Davis and Sean, and his brother Clarence all work in the company, and his other children — Curtis, Chris, Ryan and Penny — have all worked for him at one time or another.
As we continue to grow bigger, Dave hopes to keep iFoodEquipment small in a very important way: he wants you to not just be a customer, but to always feel cared for and well-served.
"We're here to serve you!"
