About Us

KESCO has proudly served the Gulf Coast restaurant and foodservice industry since 1978

Don and Linda Theriot founded KESCO, Kitchen Equipment and Supply Company, in 1978 in Lafayette, Louisiana. KESCO moved to Pensacola, Florida in 1986 where the home office is located to this day. Our 15,000-square foot facility houses our main offices, our flagship showroom and well-stocked warehouse.

KESCO Expands to Serve the Gulf Coast

In the intervening years, as demand for our services grew, KESCO opened locations along the Gulf Coast to serve our expanding market. The first of these locations opened in Ft. Walton Beach/Mary Esther, Florida. Housed in a 16,000-square foot building, this second location includes regional offices, a local showroom and delivery warehouse. As growth continued, we added our third location, a 10,000-square foot facility in Panama City, Florida. In 2006, KESCO expanded into neighboring Alabama with our fourth location, a 17,000-square foot space in Mobile.

From these four locations, our staff of 45 full-time employees provide our wide range of clientele with the highest-quality commercial foodservice equipment and products. No matter what location you contact, rest assured our entire team is committed to providing the same high of service for which KESCO is known.

A Reputation for Customer Service Excellence

KESCO works hard to maintain a reputation built on an unwavering commitment to top-notch customer service. Our team excels at providing engineering, design, delivery, installation and placement of products and equipment for our clients in the commercial and institutional foodservice industry. Our after-the-sale support is second to none, including in-house warranty and repair services for all equipment we sell.

KESCO plays an integral role in the continued success of the finest restaurants, taverns, schools, hospitals and resorts found along the Gulf Coast. From smallwares to walk-in coolers, freezers to ranges, KESCO consistently strives to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.
