The Restaurant Store's Philadelphia location was recently named Philadelphia Magazine's "Best Cooking Supplies" store in their 2017 "Best of Philly" annual collection of noteworthy area businesses. Philadelphia magazine has produced this list since 1974 to showcase what its readers and editors feel are the "best of" everything "new, fantastic, and special" in the Philadelphia area.

The magazine says, "Housed in a Costco-like warehouse…this 20-year-old restaurant supplier isn’t your mom’s Williams Sonoma. As a lay shopper, you’ll want to skip the heavy-duty equipment and instead stock up on restaurant-worthy pots, pans, dinnerware and tools—most of which are available on the cheap."

Located at 615 Bristol Pike in Bensalem, PA, the Philadelphia Restaurant Store location opened in 1997. With over 150,000 items available through the website and 26,000 sq. ft. of space, it caters to the needs of busy foodservice professionals in the Philadelphia area. Customers can streamline the ordering process by using the website and picking their order up or get it shipped directly to them.

The Philadelphia location is one of 8 Restaurant Stores. Other operations are located in Bethlehem, Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Reading, Pa., Wilmington, DE, and two in Baltimore, MD.
