MARSI Systems

How we learned to "pioneer"!

Mid-America Restaurant Specialties, Inc., “MARSI Systems”, got its start in Chicago in 1974 as Microwave Food Systems. Microwave ovens were misunderstood and misrepresented. We found success with attention to detail and confirmed that it’s NOT the equipment or the price that produces successful food service; it’s having the right tools for the job, a dedicated and knowledgeable supplier and a committed staff focused on the customer. Value Added Services, training, and follow-up became our niche.
