OUR STORY

In the summer of 1970, at the prime age of 15, Edward Berlin started working for his Aunt Bernice and Uncle Sam at Acme Restaurant Supply. Ed spent his teens working at Acme in the summers, learning the ins and outs of the restaurant supply business. When it was time to go to college, Ed decided to attend USC, where he went on to graduate with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

After graduation, Ed brought his new knowledge back to his family at Acme. It wasn’t long before Ed found success selling the largest equipment order in Acme’s history to East Bay Trading Company. After building a relationship with East Bay, Ed decided to venture out from the family business and he took a new position as Kitchen Manager at East Bay Trading. While there, he learned the ins and outs of working in a restaurant kitchen; everything from the type of equipment needed to the importance of building relationships with fellow Charleston sous chefs.

In 1986, Ed opened his own store with six employees, which included long time mentor and coworker, Jack Ferguson. During this time, Edward’s brother, Ellison, was attending the College of Charleston pursuing a degree in Business Administration. When Ellison graduated in 1987, he joined big brother Edward and Berlin’s Restaurant Supply, Inc. was born.

Since Berlin’s opened their doors over 30 years ago they have been dedicated to one thing, providing the Charleston foodservice industry with the tools they need for success. This includes more than just quality products. It is a commitment to support our customers with stellar service and face to face consultation, from the start of their design to opening night and throughout their years.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

We are fortunate to work with outstanding individuals, companies and local charities, which share many of our values.
We understand the importance of local businesses supporting one another, that’s why we put community first.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Shortly after opening The Wild Olive we were having trouble with workflow and production on our saute line. We considered a new range with two convection ovens to help with finishing our dishes. Before we made the final decision, Edward Berlin (the owner!) stood inside my kitchen for two hours on a Saturday night and observed our kitchen in operation. Edward’s solution involved trading in our existing range (for full credit!) and getting a unit with higher BTU burners and a single convection oven. The change worked, it saved me money and it proved to me that I had chosen the right company to work with!”
Fred Neuville, Owner & Chef, The Fat Hen and The Wild Olive
I like quick responses. Every time I request pricing from Berlin’s the reply is always quick and competitive. My orders are delivered in a timely manor as well. What else could you ask for?
Chef Ron Andrews, CEC, Brays Island Plantation
“I recently opened a dessert bakery and needed to furnish it soup to nuts. Berlin’s came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Don Fletcher, from the Used Equipment Department, found me an excellent used oven and display case that fit my small space perfectly. I plan to expand my business in the spring and will certainly call on Berlin’s for all my future equipment needs.”
Susan Zara, SuZara's Kitchen, Beaufort

“Thank you for your prompt reply. It is service like this which makes Berlin’s the go-to purveyor of restaurant supplies in Charleston.”

John Maxwell, General Manager, Edison Restaurant

“I just wanted to reiterate my gratitude for you. You have no idea how thankful I am for your partnership and having you along for the ride that is Charleston Wine + Food. Cheers to you, for none of this would be possible without you.”

Nysa, Charleston Wine + Food
