Say Hello to Bargreen Ellingson, Your Restaurant’s Partner in Hospitality

One of North America’s largest multi-service restaurant supply companies, specializing in full design, build, fabrication and distribution services.

If there is a trick to maintaining wholesome, customer-focused service while experiencing exponential growth, Bargreen Ellingson has it mastered. Founded in 1960 with a team of five doing “a bit of everything” to serve the restaurant industry, Bargreen Ellingson has blossomed.

Today, it is one of the largest multi-service restaurant supply, design and fabrication companies in North America, serving 28,000 customers, with a focus in the Western United States and Canada. Every year, Bargreen Ellingson’s 750+ employees fulfill more than 500,000 orders from local businesses and a growing list of national chains and retailers, drawing from a robust inventory of 16,000 SKUs.

And despite this growth, the company has remained true to its original purpose: Serving those who serve others.

The simple but effective motto is foundational to long-standing partnerships with top manufacturers in the foodservice industry. Those partnerships, along with strategically placed warehouses and retail locations, mean most foodservice-based operations receive their orders, from placement to delivery, in less than 24 hours.

Bargreen Ellingson’s truck fleet delivers up to six days a week, working with a network of trusted third-party carriers. “In BC, our four trucks are on the road throughout the week delivering from Whistler to Chilliwack to Vancouver Island,” says Jason Ocenas, general manager, Canada branch.

Indeed, these partnerships ensure reliable sourcing and supply of everything from glassware and china to disposables and kitchen equipment, not to mention janitorial and sanitation supplies.

But don’t mistake the company as just a “pots and pans” retailer.

It also makes functionality and aesthetic dreams come true with complete design, build and furnishing services entrusted to quality architects, contractors and builders and its in-house team. At any given moment, Bargreen Ellingson has at least 1,000 design-build projects on the go.

“We help you design and develop an operation that is both beautiful and functional—on time and within budget,” says Chad Allers, director of contract and design. “Our commercial designers and dedicated project managers understand the flow and throughput of a culinary operation and will blend the latest trends, products and solutions with your unique specifications.”

Of course, every service is carried out with the same care and attention that has driven the company for more than 60 years.

“Bargreen Ellingson has helped thousands of customers from every segment of the industry succeed in their ventures,” says David Ellingson, president. “We know that loyalty is built on personal relationships, and we take special care to earn your trust and business.”

Kelly Gordon, partner, Extra Mile Hospitality in Vancouver, will vouch for that. “We successfully partnered with Bargreen Ellingson to provide our kitchen package, bar package, and operating supplies order for Romers Burger Bar opening in Lynn Valley,” she says. “Getting through a new location opening on time, on budget, and with great communication is the best you can ask for in an industry partner.”
