About Mission Restaurant Supply

Who We Are

We are a food service company with a family spirit. In 1988, Mission got its start as a small ice machine and refrigeration sales and leasing company. Today, we are proud to be one of the nation's largest dealers of food service equipment and supplies. Our growth is powered by a talented team of equipment and supply specialists, designers, craftsmen, and passionate professionals who love what we do. Together, we're focused on building lasting relationships with our customers while offering a full menu of in-house services you won't find anywhere else.


Why Mission Restaurant Supply?

Mission is the largest Texas-based food service equipment and supply dealer, with six locations across the state and over 300 employees serving the brand statewide. Over our 30-year history, the family-owned-and-operated company maintains a reputation for building strong, lasting relationships and offers an unparalleled menu of in-house services. We have full stocking stores that are open to the public, centralized distribution, leasing divisions, design departments, a custom metal fabrication shop, an e-commerce store, and more right at your fingertips.

At Mission Restaurant Supply, we believe in good, old fashioned family values. The Mission Family - as we call ourselves - prides itself on being good corporate citizens. Our charitable way has become a defining component of our company culture, and we are honored to be able to give away over 15% of our after-tax profit to charities across Texas.
