Our History - TriMark Economy Restaurant Fixtures
Economy Restaurant Fixtures was founded in 1965 by Mike Weinstock and his wife Betty. Economy’s initial location was a small 4,000-square-foot building on San Francisco's Mission Street. Though Mike and Betty initially employed only a single warehouse person, Economy quickly outgrew its humble beginnings, and in 1975 took over an adjacent store, before relocating to a 25,000-square-foot facility on Howard Street.
In the late 1980s, Economy Restaurant Fixtures expanded to include an offering of design and contract services. In 1994, Jeff and Josh Weinstock joined the family firm, and in the following year Economy relocated to its current address on 7th Street in San Francisco’s SOMA district. In the late 1990’s, Josh was responsible for heading up the development of Economy’s national e-commerce website brand, BigTray.com. And in 2000, Economy expanded its business to Sacramento, where they opened a second showroom and warehouse on Richards Blvd.
In 2008 Economy was acquired by TriMark USA, a nationwide group of foodservice equipment and supplies dealers. This provided Economy with additional buying power, and allows the business to continue to grow. TriMark Economy remains family-operated, and is extremely appreciative of the many relationships the business has forged with the foodservice community over the years.
