About  Winston

We have been manufacturing foodservice equipment for decades, and we admit we’ve been known to change direction over the years. While we aren’t perfect, one thing has remained constant: we understand the business and we get our customers.

Winston Industries came into being because of a partnership with a famous Colonel when we developed a fryer specifically to meet the needs of his restaurants.

We are returning to our roots by prioritizing customizable features and engineering over production equipment. What we do will be driven by our customers’ needs.

Founder Winston Shelton left GE in the late 60s because of his entrepreneurial spirit and a driving need to create something.  He designed a workhorse of a pressure fryer for a legendary restaurant operator, as well as the ability to franchise an entire system. He created a whole new class of cooking and holding equipment that others attempt to copy to this day.

We’ve built upon this legacy because we believe in building partnerships with customers and because there is an entrepreneur in each of us. It’s the reason we’ve expanded our business – to perpetuate our entrepreneurial spirit and to provide the opportunity for others to do the same.
