Not my personal quote but one I love...“Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.” ~ William Arthur Ward
Im the 3rd gen of a family owned a food service equipment & supply co. My grandparents opened Fellers Fixtures September 10,1945 in downtown Springfield, MO. Starting as a small operation reconditioning furniture and small appliances, it didn't take long for Grandpa (Howard) to realize that reconditioning restaurant equipment could be a much more profitable venture. In 1973, their son Carl Fellers (my dad) took over the business, Fellers Fixtures had grown into a company that not only specialized in used restaurant equipment, but new products as well. By 1985, Carl realized that they had outgrown the Boonville location and it was time to move to the current location at 2140 W. Grand. We specialize in "Serving Those That Serve You." but we are also open to the public & invite you to "Come Shop With The Chefs"
Years in the Industry
the business has been open since 1945...I've been here since 1992.

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.
At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
