About Us

 

History

Our routes grow deep with food service knowledge. We are proud 3rd generation food service equipment specialists with over 30 years of experience. Our forefathers began in the early 1980’s with GZG Coolers, which was a food service equipment manufacturer. Products such as tables, cabinets, and shelves were amongst the first to be manufactured. The food service industry evolution in New York City was the foundation of GZG Coolers growth, and as they grew so did their product line. GZG Coolers quickly adapted to customer needs, and by 1985 was successfully manufacturing and distributing hundreds of products such as: refrigerators, steam tables, and custom fabrication. GZG Coolers, later acquired World Refrigeration and now does business as Universal Coolers Inc.


EliteRestaurantEquipment.com

In the late 1990’s E-Commerce began to revolutionize the way we shop online. At the forefront was eBay. A short distance from the millennium Marcel Bluvstein, grandson of GZG Coolers founder Gregory Bluvstein listed Universal Coolers products on eBay. Elite Restaurant Equipment Inc. was born and debuted on eBay amongst the first Restaurant Equipment suppliers online. Quickly orders were coming in, and long lasting business relationships were being made. With sales continuing to grow Elite Restaurant Equipment Inc. plans the launch of their first website.
