Our city is in the midst of preparing for one of the greatest sporting spectacles in the world: the 138th Running of The Kentucky Derby. In 1990, our city began kicking off the official Derby Celebration with the first Thunder over Louisville. This event draws hundreds of thousands of people to downtown Louisville for a day long celebration in anticipation of Derby. The day ends with a spectacular fireworks show which has evolved into the largest fireworks show in North America.
Many of our clients earmark Thunder Day as the beginning of a VERY busy 2 weeks. There are non-stop events, literally every moment in the weeks leading up to Derby. Black tie events, balls, brunches, fundraisers, farm feasts, dinners, dances, orchestra events, Oaks Day, The Pegasus Parade, potlucks, picnics, and everything in between. This maddening schedule of events is the standard for our clients for two solid weeks!
Dine Company is centrally located in Louisville, Kentucky and literally minutes from Churchill Downs, the historic track where The Kentucky Derby is ran. Our clients rely on us to be there for them during this humongous event.
Our experience tells us we have many different types of clients. Some prepare for months for the onslaught; others wait until the last minute. Because we have been in business for 30 years, we understand the climate and the many considerations of our clients.
Repairs and replacement of restaurant equipment are in high demand this time of year. Because our building also houses our service department, we are able to provide a day or LESS turn around time on diagnostics and repairs. Our showroom is steps away from the service department. Here our clients can buy a brand new piece of equipment or perhaps find what they need in our used restaurant equipment section.
Refrigeration is king during Derby Season as our clients are ordering massive amounts of perishable goods. Dine Company has a huge array of refrigeration in all shapes and sizes, new and used.
Forecasting our clients’ needs as well as our entire region’s needs has helped to propel Dine Company into being the main supplier of goods and services for the vast majority of food service operators in Louisville and beyond.
By building a trustworthy relationship and delivering on our commitment to excellence, we are consistently in the winner’s circle with our clients.
