Our Story



If you are an owner ready to make your mark by opening a new restaurant, bar or bakery; in a pinch for supplies; or just needing a hands on experience in a showroom to test products, Zepole has everything you need. Whether it is pristine custom kitchen design with equipment delivery and installation; or every day needs like dinnerware, kitchen and small wares, disposables, janitorial supplies, and chemicals, Zepole is your one stop partner for all of your foodservice needs! We started as a one person operation in 1982 and now our family owned business has grown to service all of Chicagoland. Our passion drives us to go above and beyond for our customers, and our consultative approach is innate. We never stop growing, and neither should you.


Our Process:

1) Consultation & Education
We know that starting a business in the restaurant or catering industry can be exciting, but overwhelming. Let our professionals help figure out what you NEED. Our team is the best of the best when it comes to educating our customers on how to successfully layout a kitchen.

2) Recommendation
After our initial consultation, we will come back out with simple solutions that make sense based on the layout, equipment or packaging you need. Together, we will come up with a plan to be sure everything falls into place with your vision.

3) Partnership
Become a member of the Zepole family. We will continue to provide you with all of your needs, including education on production efficiency, cleaning your equipment, and any new tools that may make your business run smoother.

We aren't looking for a sale, we are looking for people to partner with in order for both of us to grow. We take the time to get it right the first time, then continue to promote your business in as many ways as we can going forward, including our website, social media and referral!

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
