About Tundra

Who is Tundra?

In 1993, Tundra Specialties was born with a single mission: We respond immediately to solve the needs of our customers, so that they can sustain and grow the relationships they have with theirs as measured by unparalleled service standards, ease of access, sense of trust, being a critical resource of knowledge and information, having an incessant drive to have fun, and the commitment to share.

CEO Michael Lewis moved to Boulder, Colorado to start a new company based on values. These values are based on ideals we all grew up with but tend to get lost in the shuffle of everyday life and business. Work ethically, share your gains, keep a sense of integrity, humility and respect are a few of them.

Starting with only 3 employees and our company values, our company has grown from a local Boulder company to an international distributor of more than 60,000 products. Our evolution is based on our customers’ feedback. Over the years, we have released an annual catalog that has grown to over 400 pages. Our catalog is an excellent reference guide for equipment part breakdowns as well as a large selection of restaurant plumbing, smallwares, and equipment.

In 2005 we converted our extensive catalog to a comprehensive ecommerce website. This catapulted us into the national and international market. In 2008 we released the website you are currently visiting. We remain focused on uploading more products and information every day.

During these years some of our local restaurant chain customers expanded into national concepts. In addition, established national and international chains have discovered us and our unique ability to both open and replenish their restaurants.

Over time, detail and passion for our customer needs has created the Tundra you see today. If you have any questions even remotely related to the food service industry, give us a call at 888-388-6372 or use our live chat feature found at the top of this page.

Why Does That Guy in Your Videos Keep Saying “Mise en Place?”

That guy’s name is Chris Tavano, and he’s a former chef, so he has a lot of fancy words that he throws out sometimes, but “mise en place” (pronounced meez en plas) is a French phrase that refers to preparing your ingredients and supplies before starting to cook. It’s the prep work that needs to be done so that when you begin to cook, the process is much easier.
