In its continuing effort to bring top-of-the-line restaurant equipment and commercial kitchen products to the nation’s restaurants, hotels, resorts, schools, cafeterias and other industrial food service operators, online commercial kitchen products company Cook’s Direct (cooksdirect.com) has recently launched several upgrades to their ecommerce platform improving the shopping experience. “Restaurant Equipment and Supply buyers visiting the Cook’s Direct website now find easier navigation, improved search and faster checkout” according to Jeff Breeden, COO of Cook’s Direct.
Visitors to the online restaurant and supply e-tailer can easily navigate the site using the left hand side bar to Shop by Category or Shop by Brand.
