Dennis Hahn

President of the Design and Project Management Team

Dennis Hahn started out in the foodservice industry in 1978 working at a restaurant as a bus boy and dishwasher. He worked his way up from there to shift manager while attending the college for Architectural Drafting and Design. Upon graduating in 1982, Dennis worked at a restaurant supply company as a design assistant. In time, he worked his way up to be the lead designer and contract sales person. In 1992, Dennis joined Jan Van Hemert and worked with Jan for 3 years under Van Hemert-Hahn Associates until Jan’s retirement. 1995 marked the beginning of a very exciting adventure as Dennis Hahn & Assoc. Inc. (DHA) Foodservice Consultant was formed. In 2008, DHA merged with Dakota Food Equipment and took the contract department’s volume from 2 million dollars to currently over 8 million dollars. It was in 2011 Dakota Food Equipment changed the company name to Culinex. It is Dennis’s belief that the hands-on experience of his early years and the practical experience and understanding of foodservice operations has provided him the insight to expand his career.

As a foodservice consultant, Dennis develops construction related projects where space programming, design, cost study and construction disciplines are developed to meet the customer’s wants and needs. He also oversees the operations of the design and contract department for Culinex.

With 4 children now grown up and out on their own, Dennis enjoys spending time with his grandchildren and supporting his wife who is an active member of the Minnesota Women of Today. Dennis likes to keep busy and spends his time camping, boating and fishing. He is a deer hunter and enjoys spending time with his sons and brothers hunting in both Minnesota and Montana. The simple pleasure of motorcycle riding with his sons is something that he looks forward to every summer. During the winter, Dennis enjoys cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and some ice fishing.
