Creativity, Expertise & Commitment to Quality

Since 1972, Tom Phillips has been active in the supermarket development and commercial refrigeration field with an emphasis on supermarkets, convenience stores, delicatessens, and restaurants, as well as various processing facilities and central kitchens. His main responsibilities included store planning, mechanical drawings, interior design, estimating/budgeting, purchasing, and project management.

In 2005, Tom left the corporate world to pursue his own endeavors. Soon after, he was joined by his wife, Cheryl, who brings a commercial insurance background of more than 15 years as well as her accounting expertise and superior office organization skills. Together, they formally formed Phillips Enterprises, Inc. to focus exclusively on using Tom’s talents to create the superior shopping experience. In just a year, the growing demand for their work led to his son, Dan, joining the firm as a project manager. Dan, who holds a bachelor's degree in operations management, also handles custom cabinet design as well as store equipment and budgeting.

Summer 2006 brought another addition as Tim, Tom's youngest son, was brought on as the company’s full-time CAD draftsman. Tim brings a B.S. from Colorado State University and provides elite computer drafting skills as well as 3D department renderings, which has streamlined our design communications.

Tom’s second son, Chris, was then brought on who will institute 15+ years of grocery construction experience. With his help, our company can now offer equipment receiving & installation, as well as a misting system engineering/maintenance program.

Our final addition is Tom’s oldest son, Tom, Jr. He not only brings 25+ years of grocery refrigeration experience, but also 15+ years of equipment sales. His understanding of refrigeration is an invaluable contribution to our store designs. This company extension allows us to deliver our clients a more complete package for putting together a grocery store in its entirety.

Our Customers Say It Best…

“Long term success of the independent grocer is mandated by the need to periodically reinvest in one’s facility. While Tom Phillips has the tools and technology to assist in that effort, his greatest strengths are creativity, expertise, and commitment.”
