Tall Hat Foods partnered with Mountain West Small Business Finance on an SBA 504 loan to fund the company’s move into a 30,000 sq. ft. facility in Orem, Utah. The establishment has an enormous kitchen and additional warehouse space for receiving and shipping.

Kent Andersen, a long-time chef, also has deep experience in food research, menu fulfillment, and proprietary food product development. He founded Tall Hat Foods to provide kitchen solutions for chefs by co-developing sauces, soups, and proprietary food products—master items that the chefs can then spin into their own signature dishes.

The company started with four employees in October of 2018.

Tall Hall Foods fulfills a vital need by not only providing restaurants and other food service providers with these top-quality menu items, but also in helping them better manage their time and personnel, while lowering production costs.

Since Tall Hat Foods opened its doors, the company has added a new client just about every month and now produces 35,000 to 45,000 lbs of food a month for each one of their clients. Clients include restaurants—both fast casual and full service—as well as hotels, casinos, emerging brands, resorts, universities, and hospitals.
