Crathco was founded in 1961 in Los Angeles, California by Richard and Phyllis Harrison. The company initially started as a small family-owned business, producing juice extractors and blenders for commercial use. In the 1970s, Crathco introduced its first beverage dispenser, which was a huge success in the foodservice industry. Over the years, the company continued to innovate and expand its product line to include frozen drink machines and other beverage equipment.
In 1985, Grindmaster Corporation acquired Crathco, and the two companies merged to become Grindmaster-Cecilware Corporation. Today, Grindmaster-Cecilware is a leading manufacturer and distributor of commercial beverage and foodservice equipment worldwide.
Throughout its history, Crathco has remained committed to producing high-quality products that are durable, easy to use, and provide innovative features to meet the needs of the foodservice industry. Their innovative beverage dispensers and equipment have been a popular choice in restaurants, cafes, hotels, and other foodservice establishments for over 60 years.
