Behind CJS Sales- Distributor for Southern Pride and Broaster® Company

Let us share our passion and expertise with you.

Chuck and Lynn Griffiths at CJS are always optimistic and constantly offer valuable suggestions to help us build our business.

—Jay Shaulis & Bonnie Sechler, Owners of JB’s Roadhouse, (the first drive-thru BBQ in PA), Somerset, PA

When Chuck decided to leave corporate life in 1985 to become an entrepreneur, it was no accident that he chose a business in food service.  His background in accounting and experience growing up working in his family's quick service restaurant help him to understand the trials that our customers face.  To our customers' advantage, his perspective comes from both sides of the table.

Lynn Griffiths joined CJS in 1991 with an educational background in marketing & sales.  She loves to cook and share down-home hospitality.  Lynn brought her expertise in sales, training, and food product knowledge in a tangible way to our customers, becoming a valuable resource to them.

Thirty-four years after Chuck began CJS, we proudly distribute food service equipment and products manufactured and marketed by Broaster® Company and Southern Pride. Our excellence and commitment have been recognized by our grateful customers, and formally noticed with a 25 Year Service Award by Broaster® Company's CEO.  Chuck and Lynn, our owners, continue to receive numerous awards for superior performance during their time with Broaster® Company, including, two Vice President's Awards, and Salesperson of the Year Award.  

We have the privilege of distributing restaurant equipment and food products to all food service market segments: restaurants, caterers, mobile catering/concessions, grocery stores, convenience stores, and USDA facilities/processing. CJS distributes Broaster® in Western PA, Eastern OH, All of WV, and Western MD, while distributing Southern Pride in: Western PA, Western NY, All of WV, and Western MD, and CJS Wood Products across the U.S.


"We received stellar training and service from Lynn and all the guys at CJS. There is never a time that we have a question that a call is not returned immediately. We could not be happier with the Southern Pride unit and service."

—Steve Price, Owner, A Taste of Memphis, Princeton, WV
