*Beatrice (pronounced bee'-a-tris or in Italian
bay'-a-tree-chay) is a name derived from the Latin name Beatrix.
This occurred in medieval Italy. Beatrice means she who
blesses. The French form is Béatrice. The Spanish and
Portuguese form is Beatriz. The Greek form is Βεατρίκη.
The Beatrice name was chosen because it is a beautiful and classical name
with a true meaning of how our company feels about the service we provide
to our customers. A company name should convey what it means and what it is
going to do for its customers. Beatrice...she who blesses
with quality service.

should come first and also the health and safety standards here in the

increasing scrutiny in the last few years. The U.S. has plenty of
quality vendors that we use, and Beatrice will not undermine quality or
