Surfas! Truly a Chef's Paradise

Surfas had its humble beginnings in an abandoned garage in Los Angeles, 1937. It did very well, and in 1947 the business was moved to West Jefferson Boulevard, complete with a showroom and a service department for the expanding company.

The modest sized company became known as a premier commercial kitchen design and installation house, but that was only part of the success. Surfas had expanded into a warehouse filled with commercial equipment, cookware, cutlery, tools, china, glass ware, bake ware and other professional culinary items. When they outgrew the space in 1989, Surfas moved to a new Culver City location and added gourmet and specialty food to their warehouse. Surfas became known as a Chef's Paradise to the local professionals who spend hours at this friendly store, shopping and sharing ideas about fine food and industry trends. A few years ago, they opened their doors to the general public.

And I am so glad they did!
