Every time you visit a restaurant, eat fast food, or hire a caterer, there’s a good chance that the cook prepared your food with equipment built in Northern Nevada. Wells/Bloomfield, a leading supplier of commercial cooking equipment, is nestled in the Sierra foothills next to the Truckee River in the quiet community of Verdi, about 11 miles west of downtown Reno. The company’s products can be found nationally and internationally in establishments ranging from family-owned restaurants to giant fast-food chains and hotels.
Today, Wells/Bloomfield continues to focus on research and development to meet changing market needs. Paul Angrick, president of Wells/Bloomfield, sees a growing market for compact food-service equipment for nontraditional food locations. “Our equipment is small and portable – ideal for this type of future development, ” he says. “We have developed products for malls, mobile units, small retail spaces – even casinos.”
Wells Manufacturing’s major product lines include electric warming and cooking appliances such as fryers, griddles, convection ovens, broilers, food warmers, toasters, hotplates, waffle bakers and other specialized products built exclusively for chain restaurants.
