Culinary Equipment Group adds Corporate Chef


Following a year full of growth and change, 2022 is already proving to be another big year for Culinary Equipment Group, a foodservice equipment rep group in Chicagoland. With the addition of RATIONAL and FWE to their already robust line list, the team is energized and working harder than ever to help restaurants, healthcare facilities, schools, and other commercial kitchens get the right equipment for their needs. 


The momentum continues with the addition of Chef Ron Lapniewski, Jr as the new Corporate Chef at Culinary Equipment Group.  Chef Ron brings a unique blend of sales and culinary experience, along with training at Le Cordon Bleu Chicago and is ready to take on the challenges of this new position. "I've known the Culinary Equipment Group for several years and am excited for this opportunity. This group has a lot of positive energy!," Ron remarked.


As 2022 presses on, the equipment manufacturer’s rep is looking forward to continued growth. The addition of Chef Ron, along with their conveniently located demo kitchen in Addison, IL, opens the door to help more foodservice professionals than ever before. With live cooking demos, product testing, and foodservice equipment expertise at the ready, Culinary Equipment Group is fully equipped to be the primary resource for people in need of foodservice equipment.
