Welcome to Horn Distributing


We provide our valued customers with immediate local factory inventory to allow the most expedited availability of food service equipment.



We only sell to authorized dealers.




Horn Distributing opened its doors in 1978 to serve as an extension to the representative company-Moore Associates aka Paragon Marketing*.  The rep company has been operating in the Kansas City/St. Louis area since 1952.  Over the years as the complexion of the food service industry changed, we determined the availability of local inventory a crucial link in offering the ultimate customer service.  Horn Distributing is now the largest food service equipment wholesale distributor in the Kansas City area and concurrently is recognized as the leader in this regard.      

*In January 1999 Moore Associates changed its name to Paragon Marketing, reflecting an updated image for the new millennium.



We firmly believe the best service we can give our customers is our full attention coupled with our vast experience. End users are a prime focus for us. We have more outside sales personnel, allowing us to make more calls directly on the end user. We have found over the years that small dealers must feel every bit as important as the large equipment houses.  To this end we offer the full range of services to everyone.  This equal distribution of attention has provided Paragon Marketing/Horn Distributing with a very broad and loyal dealer base.  We also participate in all local equipment shows by displaying equipment and having experienced sales personnel staff the booth.  Our attention does not end with the dealer.  We also value consultants, architects and chain accounts and put a high priority on maintaining a strong relationship with them to further our visibility and professionalism.  A strong alliance with the factories we represent is crucial to the overall success.
