Horizon Bradco is nearing its 30-year anniversary, and it is well known in the foodservice and baking industries as a quality food equipment solutions and service provider. The company has earned this reputation by remaining true to its mission, set forth by founder Brian Donovan in 1987: to provide the best equipment service to the industry. This focus has made Horizon Bradco a leading distributor and solutions provider to the supermarket, meat processing, bakery and food commissary markets. 

“The Horizon Bradco team has more than a century of combined experience in supermarket, bakery, foodservice and commissary equipment sales, operation and service,” the company says. “We specialize in providing and maintaining the highest-quality commercial and industrial food preparation equipment. Our approach includes understanding clients’ goals and recommending the best solution for the application and budget allowed.”

European cooking is steeped in tradition, and so anyone anywhere who wants to cook a meal based on European traditions would do well to find ingredients that are made to the most authentic standards. Providing delicious, easy to use, authentic meats that are true to Spanish and Italian traditions is Campofrio Food Group America’s mission. CEO Chris Maze says, “We’re the specialists in European meats, that’s all we do, and that makes us unique in the United States.” 

From its plant in South Chesterfield, Va., Campofrio Food Group America supplies restaurants and retailers across the country with a full line of Italian and Spanish meats under the Fiorucci and Campofrio brands, respectively. Heritage is respected at Campofrio. The plant was built in the mid-1980s by Mr. Fiorucci, the great-grandson of the founder of Cesare Fiorucci SpA, Santa Palomba, Italy. By law, most Italian specialty meats could not be imported at that time so the Fiorucci Family brought Italy to the United States. 

BIGGBY COFFEE believes that drinking coffee should always be fun. “When we set out in 1995 with our first location – which was pretty early in the specialty coffee industry – we started off with this idea of serving coffee in a fun and unintimidating manner,” co-founder and CEO Bob Fish recalls. “We didn’t like the whole Euro-chic component of specialty coffee at that time. BIGGBY COFFEE is really unassuming.”

Fish attributes the company’s 20 years of success to its culture. “Our cultural values have five points: B happy, have fun, make friends, love people and drink great coffee,” he says. That philosophy starts at the home office and is echoed in the company’s stores.

Whatever the factors were that went into naming Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, one thing’s for sure, they had nothing to do with the prehistoric creature’s extinction. From a mobile operation that started 32 years ago to feed the biking community of upstate New York, to the eight-restaurant operation it is today, it’s clear that Dinosaur Bar-B-Que plans to stay in business for the long term – and not just in New York. The company is following up its eighth location, which opened in Buffalo, N.Y., last year with locations number nine and 10 planned for Chicago and Baltimore, respectively.
