We Are Here To Serve You

Refrigerated Specialist, Inc. (RSI) of Mesquite, Texas, is a market leader in the installation, service, and preventative maintenance of commercial refrigeration and cooking equipment.

RSI, certified by the Commercial Food Equipment Service Association (CFESA), serves major restaurant chains and food equipment manufacturers throughout North and East Texas.
Established and headquartered in Mesquite, Texas since 1978, RSI has been providing continuous service for over thirty years under the same ownership and management team.

All RSI’s technicians are experts in their respective fields and receive on-going training to keep up with equipment changes and industry certifications.

In the mid-1990s, the organization expanded their operations by adding a second company to the RSI brand, Refrigerated Equipment and Leasing (REALCo), which leases ice machines to RSI customers.

In 2002, a third company was formed: Cooking Equipment Specialist, L.L.C. (CES).  CES, which is also CFESA-certified, focuses on the hot side of equipment installation, service, and preventative maintenance.
Together, the three companies within the RSI brand have 50 service vehicles, employ over 80 people, and complete approximately 30,000 service calls each year.
