Learn About Us:

Global Restaurant Source began in 2003, started by two people who had decades of restaurant experience between them. Their initial focus was to market quality services to support the continued growth of the foodservice industry. The company started in a 7,500 sf facility with a showroom, an office staff, sales department, design department, millwork shop, granite fabrication team, and installation team.

In 2006, the company expanded to meet the huge amount of growth opportunities presented. That was when www.restaurantdesignsource.com and www.bardesignsource.com were acquired. Due to the continuing growth in the foodservice industry there exists a need for a legitimate turnkey supplier.

We have years of experience in the process of designing, engineering, building and furnishing restaurants. The company’s goal has always been to specialize in the food and beverage industry. Beverage service is also a huge part of food-service and naturally it is integral to the continued success of your business. Our goal is to save you time and money. With that in mind we have grown to offer specialized turnkey business solutions for the food and beverage industry’s modern needs.

Here are a few testimonials from satisfied GRS partners:
“What an excellent experience it was working with Global Restaurant Source this last Spring and Summer. Wheat Penny Oven and Bar has been open nine weeks now, and I honestly couldn’t be more thrilled. With your emphasis on collaboration, together we took a dark, outdated space and turned it into an open, colorful, beautifully lit, super-functional restaurant and bar that is the talk of the town… I appreciated a lot of things about the process. You arranged weekly meetings during which we thoroughly went over the numbers and you explained what the next step was…  The result is a restaurant that looks so much more amazing than I ever dreamed. People just walk in and their eyes get big, and they exclaim how great it looks. Do you know how nice it is to be told that over and over by guests? You and your crew, hardworking and creative, made that happen… I would recommend Global Restaurant Source to other operators without reservation. Please use me as a reference… and thanks again for all you have done for us.”
Elizabeth Wiley, Chef/Owner Meadowlark Restaurant and Wheat Penny Oven & Bar

“Chris, I wanted to thank you for the work you completed in both of our units. The custom stainless chef line, dish room, and sever station in Grandview has been a success. The work was done on time and in budget. I am more impressed with the retro-fit chef line in Dublin. That new chef line has greatly improved our efficiency and guest satisfaction. I am looking forward to working with you and R-Source (Global Restaurant Source) again on our new unit in Indianapolis and our renovation at Tucci’s California Bistro in Dublin. Both projects are very important to the future of this company and I feel like R-Source is a partner in our growth efforts. Thanks for keeping the projects on time and on budget; easier said than done in my experience.”
Rob Hoersdig, Director of Operations, Matt the Miller’s Tavern

“Chris, Decker & Associates Architectural Design & Planning Services is please to recommend Global Restaurant Source, Springboro, Ohio for your commercial design and as a supplier of commercial kitchen equipment. Global Restaurant Source recently worked with Decker & Associates to design the commercial kitchen for Progressive Hospital in Merrillville, Indiana. Upon completion of the design, Global Restaurant Source entered into a contract with Progressive Hospital to furnish and install the kitchen equipment. This project was completed to the satisfaction of all parties involved. Global Restaurant Source has previously provided the same services for Scioto Retirement Community in Columbus, Ohio and Walnut Creek Assisted Living & Nursing Home in Dayton, Ohio. We would recommend the use of Global Restaurant Source for your commercial kitchen needs!”
