Bryan Bonine & Mary (Bonde) Bonine purchased the Foodservice division of Trendlines, Inc in 2000 and
renamed the company The Pinnacle Group. Our manufacturers include furniture, equipment, smallwares and tabletop lines. Our customers include traditional Equipment & Supply Dealers, Broadliners, Paper Houses, Rental Companies, Redistributors and Endusers. We use several means of communication, marketing
strategies, demonstrations, enduser calls and trade show presence to promote the lines that we represent.
In 2004 our main office was opened in Bridgeton, MO located just west of St. Louis. Our showroom is used to host dealer sales meetings, enduser presentations and open houses to showcase our lines.
Bryan has obtained his experience from restaurant management (Hardee’s, Ground Round, Perkins), an equipment dealer (Edward Don in Minneapolis, MN) and a large rep group in Minnesota before his move to the St. Louis area. He began working with Trendlines as a Rep in St. Louis before purchasing the company.

In August of 2000 Charles Finley merged with our company. Charlie has been in the rep business his entire life starting with his father who was a well known rep because of his involvement in the Pizza Hut chain. Charlie is based out of Overland Park, KS and is very helpful with being a liaison for our dealers in that area as well as handling projects as need in the entire territory.
