TASTE Specialty Foods opened in 2006 and is based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally working with fine dining establishments up and down the “Strip” the company quickly expanded and today has a portfolio of over 400 products. Working with both Foodservice and Retail stores, the company has seen its growth and expansion based on reputation, food quality and value.
Over time the company launched its TASTE Specialty Foods label and has seen this brand grow and diversify with restaurants, chefs and everyday shoppers. TASTE is a subsidiary of TASTE Operating Inc. and is privately held. As of August 2013, the company entered into an exclusive operating and distribution agreement with Supreme Lobster and Seafood Company furthering its ability to expand and reach additional US markets.
Our management team has over 20 years of sales, product development, retail and culinary expertise. In addition to the extensive knowledge of the products we represent, our experience in preparing foods enables us to offer specialty items from a Chef’s point of view.
The company founder is John Polhemus who serves as its current President. Mr. Polhemus has a Bachelor of Science in Hotel Administration from University of Nevada Las Vegas and an MBA in Marketing.
