Grindmaster is a global manufacturer of hot, cold, and frozen beverage dispensing equipment as well as a complementary foodservice equipment line. In 1911 in Long Island City, New York, the Cecil Brothers founded Cecilware and began manufacturing foodservice equipment. In 1933, Richard Shumman patented his unique style of coffee grinders, setting the stage for the creation of Grindmaster Corporation. In 2009, Grindmaster-Cecilware was created through the merger of Grindmaster Corporation and Cecilware Corporation, two companies with a rich and diverse corporate history.
