Shady Oak Distributing is a proud 3rd generation business located in Hopkins, MN. We have created partnerships with Vent-A-Hood and Scotsman over the last 45 years.  Our role is to supply and support a network of local dealers who, in turn, sell to the general public.  Our company began in Hopkins, MN in 1957 as a small retail appliance store featuring, among other things, Vent-A-Hood range hoods and Scotsman clear ice makers.  Since then, the company has morphed into Shady Oak Distributing.
