Warehouse
THE GENTLEMEN OF RESTAURANT EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION
Our Warehouse guys are the face of General Sales to many of our customers, and we think they are by far the best crew in the industry. They’re dedicated to delivering and installing your equipment in a professional and friendly manner. With more than a combined 60 years of experience at General Sales, they know how to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Daniel Jacobs, our Operations Manager, has been with General Sales since 1982. There is nothing that Daniel can’t do: run wire for electricity, put up walk-ins, hang hoods, fix plumbing, install ice machines. He’s also a good hunter and fisherman when he gets the chance. Carlos Jacobs has been with General Sales since 1988, and is our Warehouse Manager. His attention to detail makes him great at accurately processing all of the receiving and shipping, and he can also go into the field and install a walk-in himself. Carlos can hold his own on the lake as well. JC Jacobs and Josh Daniels round out the warehouse crew. JC is the third Jacobs working here, and is the whistling wonder. Josh is our resident motor-head, and helps keep all the vehicles in good running order. This crew makes sure that everything under the roof is running properly, and that all of our deliveries and installations get done right at this restaurant supply store in Columbia, SC!
