Direct Hospitality Supplies is a family run business operating for over 28 years. Anthony Taylor began the business selling out of his truck travelling around regional and metro Victoria trading under the name Bells Bar Supplies, visiting clubs, pubs, restaurants and cafes alike. Anthony quickly recognised the demand for not only bar/hospitality supplies, but for home brew and the need for a bricks and mortar business. There began One Stop Bar Shop.
Within two years the business grew at such a pace that the business decision was made to split the business in two – hospitality supplies (Direct Hospitality Supplies) and a home brew/bar shop with the addition of pool tables, darts, memorabilia (One Stop Bar Shop). Anthony ran DHS, whilst Rhonda Taylor (his wife of 40 years) ran OSBS with the assistance of their four children over the years.
Kiwi born Rhonda successfully ran OSBS for many years before closing the business in 2019 and semi-retiring. Rhonda now looks after DHS accounts and payroll whilst loving having more time for their beloved three grandchildren and her many interests including preserving, wine making and gardening.
With the closure of OSBS, Direct Hospitality Supplies has now included home brew – beer, spirits, wine, cider, etc. and of course, continues to cater to the home cook and the hospitality professional.
In closing, to all of our loyal customers, we would like to say once more “thank you” for letting us serve you over the years. If we are new to you, we look forward to building a solid relationship offering competitive pricing, quality products, knowledgeable staff and quick shipping (if required).
