The employee-owned company is operated by President Dan Curtis, C.O.O. Ryan McPhail, V.P. Bill Kottas, and V.P. Susan Simonton. Our customers come from all segments of the industry and include the smallest of food outlets to some of the largest chain accounts. 

Beginning with a focus on restaurant kitchen design we are now known as the experts in all segments of foodservice, including churches, schools, hotels, hospitals, retirement homes, university living and events centers. While a majority of our customers are located in the Pacific Northwest, we supply and install our products throughout the U.S.

We offer a full range of services including kitchen design, project management, installation, and delivery. Our professional design staff has more than 40 years of experience. Our installation staff has over 60 years of experience. We provide foodservice equipment, supplies, furnishings, custom stainless steel and millwork products.

We have four Oregon locations in Springfield, Medford, Bend, and Beaverton, and a new location in Boise, Idaho. Our locations in Springfield, Medford, Bend and Boise have showrooms and are open to the public from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.

In 1995, Curtis Restaurant Equipment was named National Dealer of the Year by Foodservice Equipment and Supplies Specialist Magazine. Curtis was also named the Oregon Restaurant and Lodging Association vendor of the Year in 2012. On November 16, 2015, Curtis Restaurant Equipment sold 100% of the stock to the employees in an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) transaction. Curtis is proud to be an employee-owned company! Our goal is to continue our leadership role in designing, equipping, and installing foodservice facilities to help our customers realize their dreams.
