THE SOUTHBEND REVOLUTION
The South Bend Range Company began in 1898 in South Bend, Indiana as the Malleable Steel Range Manufacturing Company. Two real estate agents, Jacob Woolverton and William Kizer, established the company to create what would become one of the best kitchen ranges and eventually a full cooking line.
Southbend is now a division of the Middleby Corporation and is recognized as a global leader in heavy-duty commercial cooking equipment. With new equipment innovations in energy savings and safety, their products are considered the best in the industry by chefs, consultants, and industry experts.
They provide today’s cooking solutions, with quality manufactured products, as well as a Service First program that is guaranteed to be at your service within six hours and a team that is dedicated to putting you first.

Southbend convection ovens have all the features a busy kitchen needs from the inside out. The overall measure of any oven is the evenness of cooking. These convection ovens feature soft heat mixing zone technology that allows hot air to be mixed with cooler air to produce tempered air, ensuring even baking and cooking.
Southbend has 100+ years of experience building robust commercial equipment. That experience is best illustrated with our broilers, an industry standard for over 40 years which can be found in some of the finest and most prestigious restaurants and steakhouses in the world. Their heavy-duty construction can take whatever your kitchen dishes out.
