The South Bend Range Company began in 1898 in South Bend, Indiana as the Malleable Steel Range Manufacturing Company. Two real estate agents, Jacob Woolverton and William Kizer, established the company to create what would become one of the best kitchen ranges and eventually a full cooking line. 

Southbend is now a division of the Middleby Corporation and is recognized as a global leader in heavy-duty commercial cooking equipment.
