C. J. Fishman
C.J. Fishman entered the Commercial Food Service Industry at the age of thirteen, working in his family’s restaurant design and equipment company during the summer. During his summer teen years, Mr. Fishman would work in the warehouse, sales department, design and drafting department and would assist with equipment installations. His early exposure to the food service design and equipment field would prove valuable as an adult.
Mr. Fishman attended college at Ohio Northern University and graduated in 1977 with a Business Degree. After college he returned to Cleveland to work in his family’s expanded food service equipment company. From 1980-1982, Mr. Fishman’s areas of concentration focused in the design, layout and sales department with additional time spent in all other areas of the business.
In 1982 he left the family business and moved to Venice, Florida. He joined a small commercial refrigeration company in Sarasota and expanded it into a restaurant equipment company with major emphasis on design and layout of commercial kitchens. In 1984 he became a partner in the firm.
In 1986 he dissolved the partnership and opened Fishman & Associates, Inc., an independent commercial food service equipment, design, layout, consulting and sales organization which is located in Venice, Florida.
