Modified and Custom Solutions

for Foodservice Products

Lakeside can modify existing standard products or completely custom build one, offering you an endless variety of options. Our process is easy.


Let us know which model needs modification for your application. If you don’t see anything close from our standard offering, tell us your idea for a completely custom product.


With our years of design and customer service experience, we’ll provide immediate feedback on a practical solution.


When a design for a modification or custom product is agreed upon, we’ll provide a quote.


If a modified or custom product is recommended, we’ll produce line drawings to make sure we’re on the right track.


We’ll build and ship the product in 6 to 8 weeks (dependent on quantity) after the design and price approval and your order is placed.


Once the product is in use, we’ll be around for follow up to solve any possible issues to ensure your complete satisfaction.

In order to provide the ideal product solution for your application, in addition to our standard catalog products offers:

  • Modifiable
  • Modified version of a Standard product, beyond available configurations and options offered in the catalog. (Look for the ‘Modified’ symbol throughout this catalog, indicating products that are readily modified to meet your needs.)
