The Alfresco MISSION
For decades, the founders of Alfresco have been designing and manufacturing commercial kitchen equipment for many of the world’s finest restaurants, hotels, and chain stores that rely on the highest quality products.
In the late 90’s, Alfresco Open Air Culinary Systems was launched, offering a complete line of restaurant-inspired residential outdoor kitchen appliances with an entirely new level of quality and luxury never before available for the home; utilizing the same manufacturing methodologies used in commercial restaurant equipment. From the beginning, Alfresco has created a three-tiered commitment mission to ensure they would be producing something that had never occurred in the outdoor cooking industry. This dedication to quality in manufacturing, innovation, value and customer satisfaction would shape the Alfresco brand and set the standard for what the ultimate outdoor cooking experience should be.

Even before anyone coined the term “outdoor kitchen,” the Alfresco founders envisioned a restaurant-inspired appliance and accessory collection. That vision was Alfresco’s Open Air Culinary Systems. Launched in 1999, this luxury residential line lives up to the promise of its roots. Prominent commercial client restaurants include chefs Jean George, Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, Mario Batali and popular nationwide eateries such as California Pizza Kitchen, TGI Fridays, Applebee’s, Houston’s, and the Cheesecake Factory.
Alfresco principles Jeff Bernstein (CEO), Jeff Elliott (COO), and Edwin Hovsepian (CFO) have worked alongside one another in the food services industry since the 1980’s. It was Elliott who, in fact, built the first Viking range prototype under the team\’s earlier banner, Jade Range, a maverick in exhibition cooking.
“The fact that we arguably produce the best product out there,” notes Jeff Bernstein, also CEO of Alfresco’s parent company Superior Equipment Solutions. “We continue to push the envelope which allows our customers to expand their personal dreams for their homes.”
Whether it is your outdoor kitchen design or that of NY Yankee Derek Jeter’s, Alfresco’s winning combination of passion, expertise, innovation and an unparalleled level of quality in the residential outdoor kitchen appliances/design has landed Alfresco on the pages of “Cooking with Paula Deen,” “Casual Living,” “Luxe: Interiors + Designs,” “Delta,” and “Food and Wine” magazines, among others. “I love that we are American manufacturers who make a fabulous product that competes in a world market,” adds Elliott. “Alfresco systems are built with a focus on ultimate performance and beauty with an unmatched quality and longevity.”
Alfresco Open Air Culinary Systems is based in Southern California. All products are made and manufactured in the USA with the finest grade materials. Superior Equipment Solutions, the parent company, also manufactures the Artisan residential brand as well as several well- established commercial brands.
