Richard’s Supply Inc
, formerly known as Richard’s Restaurant Supply Inc was established in 1977. Being owner operators of local restaurants and bars, we noticed a need for better availability and selection of food service equipment and supplies in the local Tri Parish area. Fast forward many hard fought years along with several rollercoaster rides of local economic changes, and here we are today. Our current facility was built in 1996 and has allowed Richard’s to expand into more of a full service kitchen equipment and supplies dealer. We now are into the second generation of ownership with their youngest son Ryan leading the company. We offer layout and design consulting, sales, and repair service for residential commercial and marine kitchens. In 2016 we re-imagined the concept of our facility on South Hollywood to be a retail store that features our line of products for all chefs and cooks, whether in the home, outside, or in a commercial kitchen. The Kitchen Store by Richard's provides kitchen solutions for outdoor kitchens, home kitchens, corporate kitchens, food service operations, and so much more.
