Quality Service, Quality Products
1954 … Marilyn married DiMaggio, everyone liked Ike, Elvis released his first single, and Harry and Mary Lobalzo began a humble enterprise that would go on to include H.C. Lobalzo & Sons and Consolidated Food Equipment Distributors (CFED).
Now, all these decades later, Harry and Mary’s family owned and operated businesses have come together under one name: Retail Food Equipment & Service.
We’re still family run and we still have a passion for providing the food industry with the best possible products and services. So whether you need to mix it, grind it, freeze it, slice it, weigh it, chop it or wrap it, we have what you’re looking for. Plus the friendly, knowledgeable team to train your employees and maintain your equipment for years to come.
We’re where you need us, when you need us … covering 17 states across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, powered by our exclusive alliance with Hobart, the pioneering food service and equipment company. Hobart has been around for 125 years, setting industry standards when it invented the first powered food production machines — and the company continues to redefine the industry. For more than half a century we have been the Northeast’s Hobart Food Retail partner, offering its innovations in service programs, expanding product lines, and commitments to sustainability and functionality to grocery stores, delis, bakeries and butchers throughout the region.
We also work with other leading manufacturers like Vulcan, Wolf, Baxter, Traulsen and 3M Filtration, and our dedicated sales reps and factory-authorized technicians offer best-in-class service to go along with the best-in-class products. Our entire team takes pride in Harry and Mary’s legacy and the relationships we have built over the years. And now Lobalzo & Sons and CFED are one brand, one destination, one simple choice — same great products, same stellar service, way less names.
And as the King of Rock ’n’ Roll sang all those years ago, that’s all right.
