cozziniCozzini Bros. is the largest commercial knife rental and sharpening service in the U.S. We have maintained the heritage, values and customer focus of a family business. But encouraged by our customers, we have invested in our business to meet customer needs for nationwide service, customized sharpening programs for equipment other than knives and sophisticated invoicing capabilities.

Cozzini has been in operation for over 100 years. Cozzini continues to grow while maintaining the heritage, values and personal touch of a family business. We value each and every customer relationship the same way Giuseppe Cozzini did. We strive for strong and trusting relationships with each and every customer. We’re all about service.

As our customers grew their businesses, we were increasingly asked why we couldn’t grow with them to meet their needs in other markets. We listened. Today we are the only knife rental and sharpening business capable of providing nationwide service. Our 30,000+ customers include some of the largest and most recognizable restaurant and grocery chains in the United States.

Our customers love receiving sharp knives on schedule and never having to worry about buying knives or sharpening them. They asked us what we could do for their other equipment. We listened and delivered. Cozzini is the only company in our industry that will provide a regularly scheduled sharpening/exchange program for customer equipment including slicer blades, food processing blades and can openers.

Our customers count on us. Cozzini takes great pride in providing consistent, reliable and high-quality service to every customer. Cozzini assigns each location a dedicated set of cutlery, a specific delivery day and a regular frequency of service. As a large company, we have the backup resources to deal with the inevitable challenges of route delivery businesses. Our team members arrive at our customer locations in a clean vehicle and wearing a uniform.

Our customers told us they were tired of receiving one-off invoices (often handwritten) in their restaurants. They told us our invoices often got lost on the way to the office. They told us they were spending way too much time in the office entering all of our small dollar value invoices into their payments systems. We listened. We invested in state of the art technology whereby we can capture an electronic proof of delivery signature for every delivery. Some have asked us to provide them with one consolidated invoice with all the necessary details on a monthly basis. No problem. And some have even told us they want electronic data interchange (EDI) so our computer talks to their computer. Again…no problem.
