I have worked with Ballentine since 1987. They simply offer a higher level of service and expertise than other companies. From kitchen design consultation, recommendations for the proper equipment, and their tremendous depth of experience, they have built a reputation that is second to none. Plus, their participation in a very strong buying group allows them to be highly competitive on price. The combination of experience, knowledge, and competitiveness is what has allowed them to successfully help customers or more than 60 years.
