Why CFESA Certified Technicians?

Posted January 23, 2015 by CPS

In the food service industry, your commercial kitchen is vital to your business. If something in your kitchen goes down, your business goes down. It is a well understood fact that when a commercial kitchen part stops working, it is best to replace it with an OEM part.  This ensures that the replacement part will work perfectly with your equipment and, in just about any conceivable case, will be in line with the original manufacturer’s warranty.  Obviously, the only reliable commercial kitchen replacement parts are OEM parts.


There still remains the question of who would be best equipped to provide and install your OEM commercial kitchen part.  You could always take a stab at it yourself but are you really willing to risk the well-being of your business to avoid asking for help?  There is only one choice when it comes to servicing your commercial kitchen equipment.  You need a service provider that is certified by CFESA.
