Our History:

Appliance Installation and Service Corp. (AIS) was started in 1947 as the service arm of a prominant Buffalo department store named Sattlers.  At that time AIS installed and serviced domestic appliances sold by Sattlers.  1978 was a turning point for AIS.  It was purchased by Ron Canestro and switched from a domestic servicer to commercial service specializing in foodservice equipment.  In 2001 two senior managers, Paul Glowacki and Wayne Stoutner,  aquired the company and since then, AIS has grown multiple locations and has CFESA  Certified technicians throughout Western New York.


AIS is a one of 32 elite servicers in the U.S. which have been certified by the the Commercial Food Equipment Servicers Association.

What is a CFESA Certified Company?

CFESA’s Company Certification program is designed to raise the bar of quality in the foodservice industry and to distinguish the companies that provide superior service. The certification has requirements in five areas including financial, education and training, industry participation, industry relations and professionalism. These requirements were carefully created to enable high quality companies to achieve CFESA Certified Company status.
