Who We Were & Who We are Now - PAC RIM REPS

Marketing Representative of Foodservice Equipment & Supply for Hawaii, Guam & the Pacific for over 30 years!

PAC RIM REPS originally started with Mike Swenson & Colleen Kim as Mike Swenson & Associates back in 1989. The company was a Foodservice Sales & Marketing Manufacturer Rep Firm and local stocking distributor for factories such as Imperial Range & Rego China.

Together Mike & Colleen grew the company by picking up more lines, staff & partnerships. Eventually the company split into two separate firms as Pacific Rim Rep Group, Inc which handled the Manufacturer Representation and Marketing aspects while Mike Swenson Company, LLC focused on the local Hawaii stock, distribution & service support of foodservice equipment.

Mara Wong-Swenson, daughter of Mike & Colleen came on board in 2004 as the Equipment Sales, Parts & Warranty Service Manager for Mike Swenson Company, LLC handling solely Scotsman Ice Systems and eventually adding on the responsibilities of Imperial Range, Panasonic, Everest Refrigeration & the rest of the PRRG line up.

Chris Wong-Swenson came on board in 2005 as the warehouse manager for Mike Swenson Company and eventually moved up to outside sales to assist Mike out in the field.

While Mike & Colleen successfully ran both companies for over 30 years, we flash forward to 2019 - a year after our transition to PAC RIM REPS. With Mike & Colleen wanting to retire, Chris took on the reign's of PAC RIM REPS and we also made the difficult decision to bid a sad Aloha & Mahalo to Mike Swenson Company, LLC. Chris & Mara move forward together into 2020 as solely PAC RIM REPS - a husband & wife team to continue on the family legacy in the Hawaii foodservice industry.

Our commitment to quality service, innovative ideas and support before, during and after the sale for our customers has always been a priority for us from the very beginning. Merging the old ways with the new changing business climate of Hawaii has been a challenge and we look forward to meeting it head on. We are here to help you with all your Foodservice needs from application, solutions, sourcing service & support. Please contact us anytime. We are eager to assist!
