About UsOriginal Freeman Food Warmer

SMS Catering Services, Inc. formed SMS Industries, Inc. to manufacture and distribute their invention of a food warmer that was completely cordless and portable. SMS Catering, which has been doing large scale events since 1971, came up with the concept so they could have the versatility of having a carving station with heat anywhere in a banquet room or even outside. The conventional food warmer must have electricity, which meant taping down power cords from outlets or noisy generators. SMS Industries was founded the first of January 2002 as a manufacturer and distributor of The Original Freeman Cordless Food Warmer and various restaurant equipment. The company is located in Charlotte, North Carolina and is family owned and operated. Through the family's commitment to quality and service, SMS Industries has quickly developed.


The mission of SMS is to be an industry leader through unsurpassed quality and customer service in all markets that they sell equipment. By putting the customer first in every aspect of the business, from safety issues to performance tests, SMS will prevail in creating a loyal customer base.


The vision of SMS is to dominate the food warmer market and offer a wide range of restaurant equipment that meets the customers' need for quality, service and value.
