Standex opened the Standex Culinary Development Center in Allen, Texas in February 2013. The new 21,000 square foot facility is used for training, product development and key customer visits. It also serves as the corporate office for the Cooking Solutions Group of companies, including APW Wyott, Bakers Pride, BevLes, TriStar and BKI Industries. The Culinary Development Center features a state-of-the-art demonstration center equipped with the most innovative equipment offered by the Standex family of Cooking and Refrigeration brands. The facility is centrally located north of Dallas, Texas, in a region where many national chains are headquartered.
“The new Standex Culinary Development Center enables us to strengthen relationships with our customers and sales representatives while enhancing our ability to offer innovative solutions to the market,” said
John Abbott, Group Vice President, Standex Food Service Equipment Group. “The Culinary Development Center provides our customers with an opportunity to create production systems by integrating Standex’s cooking and refrigeration offerings in a prototype environment. Customer feedback from the evaluation of our products and workflow in a real-life environment enables us to develop custom solutions specifically suited to their needs. Our sales representatives also will be using the Culinary Development Center to better understand the features and benefits of our comprehensive hot and cold offerings.”
To launch the new Culinary Development Center, Standex Food Service Equipment Group held an intensive two-day training session for its sales representatives. The session highlighted new product lines that Standex introduced at the 2013 North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers Show in Orlando, Florida.
