TESTIMONIALS

 

MANATEE TECHNICAL INSTITUTE TEACHING KITCHEN

 

"Jim was magnificent in working with my entire culinary team in 2010-12, in designing state of the art culinary, baking and pastry labs in the State of Florida. The culinary, baking and pastry labs and classroom opened for business in January 2013 and is the envy of many hospitality professionals that come to visit. What impressed me and my team at Manatee Technical Institute about Mr. Richards, was his holistic and personal approach, as well as his genuine willingness to listen to our questions, concerns and exceeding all our expectations moving forward with design."

Chef Garry Colpitts, CEC, CFSE
USFSM- CIL

 


 

SARASOTA COUNTY TECHNICAL INSTITUTE TEACHING KITCHEN

 

"Jim Richards was very instrumental with the design and layout of the Sarasota County Technical Institute Culinary Arts Department. The department of 18,000 square feet presented many challenges due to the wide variety of concepts that we wanted to offer to our students, faculty and community. Incorporating a teaching restaurant (Bistro502-open to the public for lunch during the school year), an instructional learning lab, bake shop and confection room, retail kiosks, banquet facility and class room related instructional spaces to all come together for an efficient work flow was the task for Jim to solve. Three short, but fast years have passed since the new SCTI was opened in the spring of 2011 and I can honestly say that Jim exceeded our expectations."

Brian D. Knecht, CEC, CCA, AAC

SARASOTA COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL CAFETERIAS

 

"Jim Richards was involved in many kitchen designs with the School Board of Sarasota County, Florida, working from concept to the finished production kitchen and serving areas, when he worked for the company that designed many of our school district’s school kitchens. Jim listens, comes up with great ideas, and quietly but expertly puts plans in motion. Some of the school kitchens Jim was involved with were brand new construction, however, other projects were the reuse of an existing building, which can pose a significant design challenge. However, I always found that Jim maintained a professional composure and was, essentially, unshakable. Jim is respectful of clients’ knowledge and preferences, and works with them to find workable, functional solutions. He takes responsibility throughout the design process, and strives to provide a superior experience, and an excellent finished product. I have very high expectations when designing school kitchen, and have always enjoyed working with Jim."

Beverly L. Girard, PhD, MBA, RD
Director of Food & Nutrition Services
Sarasota County Schools

 


 

GAS N WASH / FOOD N FUEL PETROLEUM AND C-STORES

 

"Jim Richards Sr. was very instrumental with the design, layout and equipment for the Gas City, Gas N Wash and Food N fuel C-stores. The stores were challenging due to the wide variety of concepts that we wanted to offer including Subway, Dunkin Donuts, and Steamboat hot dogs. After designs were prepared we moved on to equipment purchasing, delivery and installations. Jim's pricing was good and the quality of the equipment was great and he always hit the dates for delivery. We have done over 40 stores with Jim since 1989 and continue to seek his expertise for the future stores."

SARASOTA COUNTY PROJECTS

 

"I have worked with Jim on a number of projects including k-12 education, higher education and county jail facilities. The design always satisfies clients' needs and budget along with detailed interfacing with Architecture and MEPF systems.

 

I recommend James Richards / PES as a valuable Food Services Consultant."
