Bilsten's Appliance Outlet was first opened in 1956 and has since become a trustworthy name in professional appliance sales. Paul Gilchrist and Janet Tafoya Gilchrist acquired ownership of Bilsten's in 1999. Having founded Paul's Certified Appliance, they brought over thirty years of experience in appliance parts and service. With this knowledge and lots of work, they created Bilsten's Appliance Gallery. Their most recent business venture with the development of Bilsten's Appliance Outlet Franchise Program, was a natural step for their next phase of business growth.
