With an illustrious history across Cheshire and the North West, Stephensons have been supplying the catering and hospitality industry since 1868.
Still owned by the Stephensons family, 5th generation family member Henry currently runs the business alongside brother, Julian.
Henry Stephenson, Managing Director, said, “Cheshire is bursting with unique and characterful catering and hospitality businesses. It’s really exciting to see the development of the industry across the North West and a privilege to supply restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes and other establishments in the region.”
Stephensons are renowned for their innovative, exciting products and are often first to market with the latest trends from leading suppliers. Stephensons remain the exclusive North West supplier of Villeroy & Boch tableware and stock ranges from quality brands such as Churchill, Dudson, Steelite, Duni and Artis.
Churchill Studio Prints Raku (pictured above) for example, has only recently been released. This alluring collection of topaz blue plates and bowls takes inspiration from a traditional glazing process in which a dappled design is printed underneath the glaze to develop a protective layer over the decoration. Featuring a distinctive colourway and handsome silhouettes, Raku has a charming presence that suits casual and formal dining alike.
Alongside tableware, Stephensons also supply back of house and capital equipment. The company invested in a demonstration kitchen in 2016 to replicate a commercial environment. With limited seating and an informal, friendly atmosphere, Stephensons host demonstrations from RATIONAL, Robot Coupe and other distinguished manufacturers.
