Difference in locations, I guess. I've never been in a restraunt supply store where they would let non-business folks purchase. The purpose of those stores is, in general, to sell to re-sellers and every one I've ever been in was not set up to sell to the public, as they were not set up to collect taxes.
This is true for the four states where I've been in these stores - different cities, different stores, all the same when it came to who they sold to.
