Why did we change our name from Pacific Restaurant Supply to Foundry?

We haven’t spent enough time and energy on our brand and we wanted to do a better job at telling our story. We felt that the name ‘Pacific Restaurant Supply’ – was good – but it was no longer connecting to the core of who we are and where we are going as an organization.

We also wanted to bring more attention to our focus areas of foodservice equipment, foodservice design and custom fabrication – which “restaurant supply” didn’t fully capture.

Why the name Foundry?

When we decided to initiate a rebranding process – part of the exploration is the naming process. Which can be fun, but also daunting – how do you pick a new name for a business that’s been around for over 20 years?

Our branding agency summarized it best “With associations of strength, metal, craft, quality and hard work – FOUNDRY feels bold and dependable. A place of industry and creation.”

Does the new name change anything for our clients?

No it does not, we are the same company, same owners, same team – just a new name. So other than a new logo on our trucks and emails – we hope that our clients experience little to no disruption. We won’t miss a beat delivering significant value and consistent execution for our clients. We appreciate your patience and support!
