    About Us


    At the intersection of food service and innovation, you will find Culinary Depot diligently working to service our customers’ best interest and provide unsurpassed knowledge, experience, and dedication.


    Built on the backbone of Founder and President Sholem Potash’s experience and hard work ethic, Culinary Depot has risen to become one of today’s premier commercial kitchen equipment suppliers. The original vision of Sholem Potash has been brought to life and expanded upon under the guidance of CEO Michael Lichter, who has expanded the company from not only wholesale product distribution, but kitchen installation and furnishing as well. This calculated expansion has paid off as Culinary Depot moves into new emerging markets that require their solutions.


    Moving forward, our goal and vision is to continue to provide our customers with excellent service and dedication to perfection, while expanding and innovating within our industry. We also seek to provide our team of employees with a creative and appreciative work environment. We believe their success is our success and we encourage them to dream big! Unlike many other businesses, Culinary Depot was not conceived of in the corporate boardroom or at an investors’ meeting.  Rather, the ideals that guide every aspect of our company were shaped in the heat of the kitchen, where Sholem Potash, president and founder, spent decades preparing mass quality meals for schoolchildren and hotel guests.
