Chefwear is synonymous with heritage and experience, and rightly so - it has been outfitting chefs for more than 25 years. The groundwork for Chefwear began when pastry chef Rochelle Huppin was a student at The Culinary Institute of America in 1985. All students received the standard polyester uniform, but Huppin knew the uncomfortable fabric and poor fit would not work for her in the kitchen. So, she created her own styles out of 100% cotton fabric.
Upon her graduation from CIA in 1987, Huppin took a risk and decided to share her new, comfortable baggy chef pants to a number of leading chefs at a charity event hosted by Wolfgang Puck in Los Angeles. Her new style of chef pants became an instant success with a high demand from the industry to create more! It was apparent that chefs needed a comfortable and fashionable alternative to the standard polyester uniform.
Today, Chefwear has become an iconic name in the culinary apparel industry and our original styles have developed into a full line of foodservice uniforms. We offer a large selection of culinary clothing options for both your front and back-of-house staff. From chef coats, pants and jackets to a variety of accessories and aprons, we have it all.
