What began as a Family Business…

IN THE 1990’s, Jack Shannon reinvented his life around a fascination for great food and its preparation. A lifelong “foodie,” Jack built relationships with Boston area chefs based on their individual style and preferences, then enlisted his “kids” to custom source, package and deliver a full menu of supplies to each chef’s kitchen. As Boston’s culiniary scene expanded, its chefs continued to count on JNKIDDS.

…Grew into a Business Family!

IN THE 2020’s, Andrew Shannon follows the original recipe. The family has grown to 25 food service professionals, a 22,000 ft. warehouse and a fleet of vans and trucks. We still make it our business to know every customer’s kitchen style and preference. The JNKIDDS team has our family gusto for getting food and service right!
