Why MISSION?

Mission Concepción

We’ve had many great questions from our customers regarding why our name is Mission Restaurant Supply- what’s with the Mission? Some of our customers have asked if we are headquartered in Mission, Texas (we are not) and some have guessed that we just thought it was a strong, solid name, but the truth is that we have chosen the name Mission for a reason. Read our description below to learn the real meaning behind our logo and our name.

Mission Party Ice was acquired in 1988 and served as a local ice machine and refrigeration sales and leasing company until we grew into what is now Mission Restaurant Supply in 2001. The name “Mission” is derived directly from our local culture and the presence of the 5 historic Spanish Missions here in San Antonio. If you are unaware of the history behind these historic structures, you can read about it in more detail here. In a nutshell, the San Antonio and South Texas Missions were used to help buffer the French forces from the Spanish frontier back in the early 1700s. These outposts came to be run by Catholic religious leaders who hoped to spread Christianity to the Native American people.

 

Our logo boasts Mission Concepción, which is one of the only unrestored stone Spanish Mission churches in America, and it is in the best shape of all the Missions here in San Antonio. The snowflake represents our commitment from the beginning to quality commerical ice equipment and commercial refrigeration, and this snowflake encircles Mission Concepción as a way of commemorating our history. The San Antonio Missions are symbols of our city’s heritage, while they are also symbolic of perseverance and sustainability. They have weathered the course of time just as we hope to do, and they strongly represent the city of San Antonio and all of South Texas.
