Below is our recent interview with Natalie Rivera from ChefUniforms:

A: We provide better quality Chef apparel products at lower prices. Our products are designed to be comfortable and stylish while making sure that they are durable and long-lasting. We offer a wide range of sizes and styles to fit any chef’s needs. Our products are made with high-quality materials and we take great pride in our craftsmanship. We strive to give chefs the best possible experience when it comes to buying chef apparel.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your products?
A: We manufacture and sell our own proprietary brands of chef coats, pants, aprons, shirts and hats including Chef 360, Chef Performance, Industry Line and On the Line. We also carry national brands for footwear such as Dansko, Fila, Klogs and more.
Q: Who is your ideal customer and why?
A: All chefs from the Executive Chef down to the home chef – we have products for everyone.
Q: What advantage does ChefUniforms have over its competitors?
A: We conducted a head-to-head wash test (60 washes!) with our top-selling coats and pants against one of the biggest Chef uniform companies in the industry. Our products held up their color and seems, while the competition’s looked washed out and the fabric pilled.
Q: What were the main challenges you faced in developing the company?
A: One of the main challenges was trying to learn the customers and the Chef industry. We had to figure out what the customers wanted, what their needs were, and how to best meet those needs. Additionally, we had to learn the trends in the industry and how to adjust our offerings to keep up with them.
