We are a family run, full service packaging company. We furnish custom bags, boxes, tissue, napkins and other F&B related products to restaurants~ Hotels & Casinos~Resorts & Spas and single location establishments.

We have a large warehouse here in Las Vegas as well as one in New Jersey which makes us ideal for companies with chains stretching across the country as we are able to store goods and drop ship as needed.

Hi Kristen!
I work with ChartHouse Learning and we have a unique opportunity for everyone in the Vegas area. We are the folks that created the FISH! Philosophy based on the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle and we are premiering FISH! The Musical in Las Vegas on September 25th. The show is free and positioned as entertainment with a message for businesses and organizations. Write back and let me know if you're interested and we'll get you set up with a seat or two. If you know anything about FISH! you know it will be FUN!
Take Care.

Just checked the comment about bottles. I will call you to do the quotes and all. I am looking for plastic/eco/green bottles. The short 5oz versions with med holes on top for shakers. Very cool that you do that. Trying to stay eco-friendly/plastic.

Hi there. I checked out your website. Do you do food packaging, or just the design of it? Co-packaging?

I am starting up a spice/sauce company and sourcing for suppliers. Saw you and wanting to know. PS: my 3.5 yo daughter loves PINK!

Are you an Ohio native?

Hi Kristin, you may be interested in a spot on our State of Nevada Page, or any other of the 50 States' Pages. We are getting ready to add Food and Paper goods pages to our website as soon as we get our Restaurant Equipment pages off the ground (probably Late this week). Our web targets the Restaurant and FoodService Industry as a whole, with special emphasis on pre-opening research and resources. All of our current clients are in the Atlanta, Ga area and you can see examples of the pages that we create for them on our Website Sponsors Page. Since we are on the verge of branching out, our prices are very reasonable for the amount of work that we do. Our clients in Atlanta have had very good success. At the very least, I think that we should exchange links to increase our page ranking in the search engines.
