In 1981, Bob Rippe founded Robert Rippe & Associates, Inc. to provide foodservice facilities design and operational consulting to architects and owners.

Our signature product quickly became easily manageable facilities which efficiently produced high quality food while optimizing customer satisfaction and financial performance. As our reputation grew, we developed relationships with local and regional architects and food managers, and diversified into foodservice facilities designs for a wide variety of markets.

As Bob moved towards retirement, a succession plan was developed and Steve Carlson became President of the firm and purchased ownership of the company in 2006. Today we continue to grow based on our established successful relationships, illustrated through over 80% of our work resulting from referrals and continued client relationships. We are proud of our company history and continue to work hard to earn and maintain our solid reputation.
