Customer Stories

Big John’s

We truthfully thought we were selling all the chicken that we could. Personally, I did not think we would hit our goal. We not only achieved it, we went way beyond. The equipment is first class and it's very easy to learn. The fryers are automated and simple to learn....

The Charley Biggs' brand has elevated our Deli to the next level with the signage and the custom counter. It looks like we bought into an elaborate franchise. The Charley Biggs' products are top of the line. They are at the "Gourmet' level quality.
