Dave Ettinger held the title of national sales manager for several large foodservice companies before deciding to branch out on his own as a manufacturer’s representative in the late 1970’s. Originally incorporated in 1978, David L Ettinger & Associates formed in order to represent quality smallwares manufacturers for the Texas and Oklahoma markets.


Dave quickly realized that he would need a strong partner to cover such a large territory. In 1979, Dave hired his friend and former co-worker, Dennis Rosini, to run his south Texas operations. And in 1981, the corporation changed its name to Ettinger-Rosini & Associates.


Over the next few years Dave and Denny expanded the company, representing cooking equipment and refrigeration. The addition of future partners Dan Scruggs, Weldon Smith, and Wayne Larson helped to strengthen ER’s position in the marketplace as a leader in both smallwares and equipment.


In 1992, Greg Rosini was added to the sales team. One year later, Darrin Chaisson joined the fold as well. Over the next three decades, these two “rookies” took on increasing rolls within Ettinger Rosini, becoming the managing partners of the company when Dennis retired.


Ettinger Rosini constantly strives to strengthen our strategic partnerships within the foodservice industry while providing consistent growth to those manufacturers’ who have placed their trust in our company.
