  • A Green Smoothie

    Smoothies are one of our favorite things to make with a blender, especially when your body needs a little nourishment. For one, they are so easy to blend up (just throw everything in and press start), particularly when you have a nice blender that can deliver the right end result. We recently tried our hand at making this nutrient-packed green smoothie and truth be known it left us feeling lean and refreshed.

    Words of Wisdom: Investing in a nice blender is the only way to ensure you get the best results time after time. Our favorite for the price is the Waring BB150, which for only $51.99 makes a fabulous smoothie! If you have a higher budget, we highly recommend buying a Vitamix - revered in the industry for their great construction and long life span (not to mention they look right at home on a countertop):

    Here's the recipe for the Green Smoothie we made: Ingredients 1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped 1/2 english cucumber, peeled and chopped 1/2 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped juice from 1 lime 1 cup baby spinach leaves 10 mint leaves, chopped 1 tsp agave nectar crushed ice The Recipe (serves 2) Put all ingredients in a blender (we recommend this model or this one) and puree until it reaches a nice, smooth consistency. Garnish with a spear of cucumber and enjoy! Check out our variety of Vitamix Blenders or browse  our full selection of Bar Blenders and Food Blenders on MissionRS.com!

  • The Interest in Immersion Blenders

    Some of our biggest best-sellers online are Immersion Blenders or Hand Mixers, simple handheld tools with built-in motors that can do it all in the kitchen from blending, whipping, emulsifying and pureeing. With all that these units are able to do there's no wonder that they are beloved in both the commercial and retail/residential kitchens alike: Why Buy An Immersion Blender? 1. Size/ Configuration Immersion blenders are compact in size (also lightweight) featuring ergonomic handles with different sized shafts and capacities to accomodate your specific blending need. We also have a few combination immersion blenders online which feature a stainless shaft and a whisk attachment.

    2. Easy to Clean Many of our hand mixers on MissionRS.com feature a removable shaft which makes throwing it in the dishwasher and keeping it clean one of  the most desirable features. {Note that select models feature this removable shaft while others have a fixed shaft.} For the fixed shaft variety, simply use soapy water, scrub clean and towel dry.

     

    3. Ease of Use Whether you're making creamy soups, chunky salsas, kneading dough, or something in between, you'll be able to find an Immersion Blender to do the job in our selection at MissionRS.com! Simply submerging the stick into your ingredients and turning it on will start the process and moving in a circular motion will ensure all your ingredients combine. There aren't many kitchen tools that can be so multi-faceted and handle so much as a Commercial Immersion Blender- not to mention a unit as small as this! The lightweight  feel and compact size make it easy to use and manuever through the task at hand. Check out our selection of Immersion Blenders online and start doing more with your commercial kitchen equipment!!
  • Press Release: Dealer of the Year

    PRESS RELEASE (Click here to View the Full Release)

    Mission Restaurant Supply Named Dealer of the Year by FE&S Magazine On the evening of May 5, 2012, at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago, FE&S Magazine presented its annual Dealer of the Year Award to Mission Restaurant Supply, a South Texas company that's heralded for harvesting a culture uniquely its own. July 13, 2012 (SAN ANTONIO, TX ) - Foodservice Equipment & Supplies (FE&S) Magazine, the leading foodservice industry trade publication, recently named San Antonio-based small business Mission Restaurant Supply as the 2012 Dealer of the Year. The prestigious award, revered for recognizing leadership within the industry, was accepted by Owner & CEO Jack Lewis along with President Andy Wueste at the annual National Restaurant Association Show. Though smaller than many previous honorees, Mission Restaurant Supply credits its success and growth to the workplace culture nurtured throughout the years.  "With the help of 240 employees," said Lewis, "it has been 'The Mission Family'--or rather 'Team Mission,' as we call ourselves--that has taken the company's path upward to new and exhilarating heights." "For Team Mission," added Wueste, "the past two decades have been met with a dedication to uniquely deliver the best service, products, and experience to customers in the restaurant and foodservice industry." Mission Restaurant Supply's story began in 1988 when Jack and Liza Lewis bought Mission Party Ice, an established packaged ice business in downtown San Antonio. There were a number of obstacles in the beginning that drove the pair to diversify their business model. For example, the lag in packaged ice business during the wintertime meant they needed to find new and different ways to generate revenue year round. This eventually led to leasing and distributing ice machines and commercial refrigeration, which paved the way to becoming a full foodservice equipment and supplies dealer. Mission Restaurant Supply is the leading foodservice equipment and supply dealer in South Central Texas. The family-owned company also operates a bid contract department, an engineering design team, a custom metal fabrication shop, an e-commerce store, and four Texas showrooms with Leasing and Service Departments in San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, and McAllen.

  • 4th of July Peach-Blackberry Pie

    The 4th of July is the very essence of American summertime. With families flocking outdoors, revving up their barbeque pits and donning their red white and blue, the burgeoning summer season has officially made its grand entrance. Food is as important as ever on July 4th with BBQ, potato salad, hamburgers, hot dogs, berry cobblers, ice cream, and more all playing a star role. This year we are featuring a delicious Peach-Blackberry Pie by celebrity chef Bobby Flay that would be right at home (and a welcome treat) for your 4th of July festivities.

    Photo

    Makes 1 (9 inch) Pie Crust 2-1/2 c all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 1/2 teaspoon fine salt 10 tablespoons (1-1/4 stick) cold unsalted butter cut into 1/2'' cubes 1/2 c solid vegetable shortening, cut into pieces, cold Filling 1 pint fresh blackberries 2 tablespoons blackberry liqueur 5 c peeled, pitted and 1/2'' thick sliced ripe peaches (about 8) 1/3 c firmly packed light brown sugar 1/3 c granulated sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 3 tablespoons peach brandy 1/4 c cornstarch or tapioca 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, cold 1/4 c heavy cream 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar What To Do 1. To make the crust, put the flour, sugar, and salt int he bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Scatter the butter and shortening on top and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup ice-cold water and pulse until the dough just comes together. 2. Preheat oven to 375 F. 3. To make the filling, put the blackberries in a small bowl, add the blackberry liqueur, and toss gently to coat. Let sit for 5 minutes. 4. Combine the peaches, both sugars, cinnamon, giner, nutmeg, peach brandy, and cornstarch in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Let sit for 10 minutes. Fold in the blackberries just before adding the filling to the pie. 5. Divide the dough in half and roll each half out on a lightly floured surface to a 13 to 14 inch round. Transfer one of the rounds to a 9'' deep-dish pie plate. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the fruit mixture into the crust. Add some of the juices that have accumulated in the bowl. Scatter the butter over the filling. Roll up the remaining dough and unroll it over the fruit mixture. Trim the edges of both crusts to a 3/4'' overhang and press to seal while crimping the edges. Cut 6 slits in the top crust to allow the pie to ventillate during baking. Brush the top of the pie with the cream and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. 6. Put the pie plate on a rimmed baking sheet and bake on the bottom rack of the oven until golden and the juices are bubbling thickly through the slits (roughly 1 hour & 10 minutes) Bobby Flay Tip: Cover the edges of the crust with foil if they are browning too quickly

    Common Questions Why do some of the models have a -DS at the end of them? The -DS is referring to the Dual-Sided Construction, meaning there are doors on either side of the unit for double access Why do some of the models have a -S and a -SS at the end of them? The -S is referring to the solid stainless exterior of the cooler while the -SS means that both the interior and exterior of the unit are constructed of stainless steel. How Many Crates Will These Units Hold? The number of crates a True Mfg Milk Cooler will hold is dependent upon how big the cooler is. For instance, the TMC-34-DS holds 8 milk crates while the TMC-49-DS holds 12. You should be able to find the number of crates each model holds on the product page.
