Working with Jim and the Great Lakes team has been a great stress relief over the years. Being in the restaurant business presents nothing but obstacles and opportunities, and Great Lakes has helped immensely in tackling both. It’s rare to work with a group that has not only the experience to know the way out of issues, but also the foresight to prepare you for what you can’t see ahead! Anytime we have a complicated problem or need an unorthodox solution Jim’s the call we make. It’s like having a solutions hotline at your fingertips!

Everything about working with Great Lakes was easy. They made everything so simplified – we had a grand scale project starting from basically an empty box. Permitting and late additions of enormous piping in the dish kitchen was really one of our biggest problems but Great Lakes helped us get through it easily.


Working with Great Lakes Culinary Design and Great Lakes Hotel Supply was a first-class experience from start to finish. They were able to deliver on everything we wanted at a fair price that fit into our tight budget…the team was always willing to make edits to ensure we were able to achieve our goals.
