Finding comfort in life is one of our basic needs as humans. Everyone finds it in different ways: for some it’s returning to a place laden with memories, for others it’s simply holding a special memento. But for all of us, we seek comfort on a daily basis everytime we sit down for a meal. In the restaurant business there is strong theme that revolves around providing comfort and nourishment to people through food and good service. Restaurateurs, chefs, waiters and waitresses, everyone comes together to do what they do best: to cook and to serve. At Mission Restaurant Supply we cherish this tradition of cooking, of nourishing the bodies and fueling the minds of people everywhere. Whether in your home or in your business, there is a commonality amongst all cooks, professional chefs and foodies out there that cooking is a gift, and we think sharing that gift with people is a beautiful thing. We are especially grateful to be in the business that we are in and to be able to help restaurants and companies around the nation in their efforts to bring people together around a table. This holiday and new year season, we hope you’ve been given the gift of comfort and perhaps you’ve shared it with others too. Many thanks to all of our wonderful customers, friends, loyal patrons (and readers of this blog!) for a wonderful 2012 and cheers to a happy, healthy and prosperous road ahead.
