"I would heartily recommend Block's to anyone considering a kitchen upgrade. As a former Customer Service Manager for a major corporation, I know the value of great customer service and I really appreciated how great Chris and your team are in that area. I appreciated the timely responses to every question, I appreciated the advice and recommendations that Chris and Miles made when on site reviewing our kitchen. We did in the end spend more than originally planned, but we have a much better kitchen than originally planned. Chris was very sensitive to us being a small not-for-profit, and recommended any savings opportunity (gently used stand for example). As a result, we have an updated, more efficient kitchen which our kitchen staff love to work in."

Since 1979, appliance service and repair has been in the Block family blood. Chris Block was raised, trained and employed by his father Walter, until he purchased the family business, known as JD Commercial Appliance. Having built a successful foundation with local restaurants, institutions and wineries, the business grew annually until Chris sold it in 2010 to pursue new opportunities beyond the Okanagan.

Despite building new skills and experience in roles such as Service Manager for Russell Food Equipment and Lead Project Manger at Pacific Restaurant Supply, Chris couldn’t shake the desire to own his own business once again. The decision finally took Chris back to Kelowna, returning him to his roots.

Thirty-five years after his father before him, Chris Block and Lara Nemerosky launched Block’s Commercial Kitchen Equipment Service. Focused on knowledgeable expertise, quality customer service, and community values, Block’s is proud to continue the family tradition that Walter began.
