We are very excited to announce the launch of our Central Exclusive line of countertop cookware which consists of hot plates, griddles and charbroilers. All units are available in 24″, 36″ or 48″ widths, made in America and include a one year parts and labor warranty.

The hot plates will provide years of maintenance-free operation and reliable cooking performance.  They have high performing 22,000 BTU cast iron burners and have a manual on and off control valve with a ¼ turn for easy temperature control.

The gas griddles are a perfect add for a budget minded operator.  These units have custom designed 20,000 BTU aluminized steel U-shaped burners.  The griddle has an easy-to-clean spatula wide 3¼” front grease trough and grease chute.  It also features a ¾” thick polished griddle plate.

Last, the radiant gas charbroilers were designed for the most demanding foodservice applications and deliver maximum performance. They have cast iron burners and heavy gauge stainless steel radiants for great heat distribution and to vaporize drippings.

Metro's MetroMax i™ Drying Rack Shelving System

Metro’s MetroMax i™ Drying Rack Shelving System


One of our latest adds to shelving is in our Value Series product line, a wall storage system. The great thing about these is you have one of two choices: Buy prepackaged kits with everything you need, or build from scratch and buy individually to fully customize your workspace. If you chose to customize your own space, our product consultants can help walk you through all the pieces you need to buy.

We also added Metro’s MetroMax i™ Drying Rack Shelving System. These are a great addition for a kitchen to quickly dry trays, baking pans, sheet pans, etc., as well as pots or pans.  Prepackaged shelving units are available in stationary or mobile and are available in two choices: Mixed model with a standard shelf, tray drying rack and two pot and pan racks, or four pot and pan rack shelves. You can also buy the tray and pot and pan drying racks separately and mount them to any existing MetroMax shelving.


We added two lines of Vollrath carts: Heavy duty stainless steel utility and economy. The heavy duty carts have a welded construction, stainless steel shelves and an ABS handle. Economy carts have a chrome-plated tubular construction and stainless steel shelves.

If you’re in the market for an inexpensive cart, take a look at our Value Series line which recently had a major price drop. Still great quality! Just at a lower price–bonus for you!

Central updated our flatware section and now have a large variety of World Tableware. There is a huge mix of medium and heavy weight styles to match up with your dinnerware.

We also added World Tableware’s unique Farmhouse dinnerware.  “Farmhouse dinnerware is organically shaped to capture the truly unique charm of old-world craftsmanship with the benefits of modern performance,” they explained. This line has everything from cups and bowls to plates and platters.

For drinkware, check out our variety of Value Series pebbled tumblers available with a textured exterior to resist scratching. They are constructed of a break-resistant SAN plastic, are stackable and dishwasher safe.


For those baking pizzas, you have to check out Blodgett’s countertop electric deck ovens.  These units allow restaurants to bake directly on the stone surface or with the use of screens, pans or sheets.  They have 1″ thick high-temperature mineral fiber sheet insulation and a cordierite oven deck.  There are one or two deck ovens available and can stack up to two high with a stacking kit.

A great accessory to the deck oven, or any, is American Metalcraft’s straight sided deep dish pizza pans.  These are available in a variety of finishes and range from 10″ in diameter to 16″.

For merchandising and display, we added Star’s humidified hot food display cases.  These units are available with universal racks, pizza racks and pretzel/bagel racks. They will provide your establishment with high sales volume yet has a very small footprint.
