In the 1980's Choquette & Company Ltd. made two major acquisitions: “JCW Food Equipment Services” in 1982, and more importantly “Commercial Kitchen Services” (CKS) in 1984. The purchase of the company Commercial Kitchen Services (C.K.S.) in 1984 brought the connection to major manufactures of commercial cooking equipment and vast technical knowledge. Commercial Kitchen Services was the largest commercial kitchen equipment repair agency in the Montreal, Quebec City and Ottawa area.
With this acquisition; Choquette-CKS Inc. became well connected to major manufacturers of commercial cooking equipment and with experienced technical knowledge, was able to broaden its services to a vast variety of customers, ranging from snack-bars to the largest industrial and commercial institutions.
