About Professional Foodservice Design, Inc.

Professional Foodservice Design, Inc. (PFDI) was formed and Incorporated in 1999 by Stan Schwartz.  After more than thirty years of Industry experience, Mr. Schwartz started PFDI with the philosophy of bringing excellence and the latest technology to the projects his firm would participate in. PFDI uses this “State of the Art” technology to promote food safety and aid in the execution of HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) plans.

PFDI is a comprehensive foodservice facility consulting and design firm that specializes in providing value-added services to clients from a project’s conceptual stage through completion.  We serve architects, planners and others seeking the best in functional design for all facets of the foodservice industry. PFDI is independent without affiliation to any equipment manufacturer and does not accept specification fees or subsidies from equipment manufacturers allowing for us to offer the best designs for our clients without constraint.

Whether the project scope consists of new construction or renovation, we analyze the operational costs, budget, safety, and proper work flow necessary to provide an efficient and safe foodservice facility.
