Kuna Can Help Your Restaurant Supply St. Louis With Delicious Food
KUNA started as a small family-owned butcher shop in south St. Louis. Families, businesses, and restaurants from all over the St. Louis area turned to our family because of our dedication to the highest-quality cuts of meat and service to our customers. While the products have changed since first opening our doors in 1918, we remain true to the core values launched in our tiny butcher shop.
Now under the third-generation leadership of Dan Bippen, KUNA continues to be a family-owned and operated company supported by a team of friendly faces ready to assist restaurants of all sizes with their food service and food service equipment needs. The heart and soul of our business has always been the restaurants we supply.

KUNA is the largest independent family-owned foodservice distributor in the St Louis area. We take pride in providing service to local restaurants, regional chains and national food service providers.
Every day our refrigerated trucks deliver food products, restaurant equipment and kitchen essentials to regions in 15 states. Despite our home just outside of St. Louis, Missouri, we deliver a wide variety of items in a safe and timely manner based on each of our customers’ needs and schedules. Because of our 100+ years of experience and our commitment to service and quality food produces, restaurants happily open their doors to KUNA for restaurant supplies.
Serving Multi-Unit Restaurants and Restaurant Chains
One of the most important elements of running a multi-unit restaurant is the ability to provide consistency for your customers. They expect the same product and quality every time at each location. Because of our buying power and the space within our state-of-the-art facility, we are able to provide large-scale wholesale food products and equipment to meet the demands of multi-unit restaurants. This allows for better consistency and sustained quality over time between multiple locations. Restaurant chains are built upon efficiency and consistent quality, which is why both local and national names turn to KUNA.
