Rapids Customer Testimonials
Don't just take our word for it!
Silhouette Bakery & Bistro Video Testimonial
Specializing in Global Fusion and offering everything from rice bowls and tacos to macarons and muffins, their distinctive menu is a result of their background and experience in wholesale catering. Rapids was thrilled to help them expand that business to an actual restaurant via our commercial kitchen design services.
“We went to a couple different places first, but then we decided to go with Rapids after talking with them… friendly staff, a lot of good people work there.”
Linn-Mar High School Video Testimonial
Linn-Mar High School underwent a cafeteria renovation in an effort to increase efficiency to be able to serve up to 400 students in 10 minutes to give them ample time to enjoy their meals.
“Luke Green and the design team were incredible. They observed prior to the remodel, they were able to identify our problem areas, and really worked to just streamline everything. Luke was available for every single question and provided updates along the way. It was really amazing and I would have to say we are 100% satisfied with the final result of this project.”
Which Wich Video Testimonial
Which Wich Superior Sandwiches utilizes our 19,000 square foot St. Paul Retail store location for smallwares fullfillment in the Twin Cities area.
“…the people that work here actually know the business. They’ve been there, they’ve done that, they’re familiar with the different brands…”
On behalf of Mr. Green, I write this DRS letter of recommendation to emphasize the professional dedication exhibited by Mr. Green as he ensured this kitchen project was completed on time for the start of the 2016-2017 school year.
I believe it is important to highlight the work undertaken by Mr. Green for this kitchen remodeling project. Mr. Green provided:
- The architectural design team and the school district several design options for a challenging location and a very short construction design timeline.
- Hands-on work with the school district to recycle and remove existing kitchen equipment prior to the start of the construction phase.
- Professional consultation during the construction phase to ensure accurate installation of all kitchen appliances.
- Technical support and oversight for the start-up of all appliances.
In addition, Mr. Green has provided timely services to address warrantee repairs of some kitchen appliances. With all the professional services provided, Mr. Green has provided exemplary services to the Linn-Mar School District and is deserving of the recognition of DRS of the Year and I fully support his candidacy for that award.
Thank you all so much for doing such a wonderful job with the recent equipment orders. You knew the orders were on a rush status and you pushed hard to get the necessary information to make the orders happen. You have also kept up great communication throughout the last couple months to ensure we had what we needed and that everything was flowing properly.
The entire process has gone even more smoothly than I hoped it would, and I have you all to thank for it.
I appreciate your attention to these orders. You made this unusual “adventure” a really great one!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
We’ve had the pleasure of Luke Green supporting our departments the last 7 years, where he’s played many roles to support our mission. The primary support role Luke has played for our organization has been his involvement with our teams by helping in the classrooms. Luke comes in throughout the semesters and educates our students on how to design and develop a restaurant, as well as educate them on products and equipment. Luke heavily supports our operations through updates on new and discontinued products, and provides timely updates on price changes that impact our operations.
What we’re most impressed and satisfied with is his consistency. This industry changes staff members regularly, and Luke has helped in those transitions by spending time with new department heads and instructors that control expenses and works with them to get acclimated on how his purchasing process works, builds a great relationship with them so they can reach out to Luke as needed, and communicates with our teams in a timely fashion.
We highly recommend Luke for DSR of the year. With Luke’s continued support we continue to be a leader in our market and have consistently been recognized over the last six years with AAA’s Four Diamond Award. Additionally, thanks in part to Luke’s support, the Culinary Arts Program was recently recognized as being ranked in the Top 20 Culinary Schools in the country by Best Choice Schools.
