MISSISSIPPI DEALER PLANS EXPANSION
Associated Food Equipment & Supplies is spreading its wings. The Gulfport, Miss., dealer has announced plans to open a showroom, office and warehouse facility in the Jackson metro area. The planned location will offer design, planning and consulting services in addition to sales, delivery and installation. Associated said the expansion is part of its plan to better serve customers in the central and northern parts of Mississippi. The dealership, founded 30 years ago, also serves Alabama and Louisiana. Last year, Associated announced it had become a minority-owned business.
