OKLAHOMA CITY--()--US Foods, an innovative food company and leading distributor, has brought CHEF’STORE to Oklahoma City. CHEF’STORE is a wholesale food and restaurant supply store featuring an assortment of more than 4,000 pantry staples, specialty products and other must-have items for chefs, restaurant owners and other food industry professionals.
“Designed to be easy and intuitive for our customers and to ensure great value, CHEF’STORE makes getting the right products at the right prices easier than ever for chefs.”
“CHEF’STORE has all the supplies restaurant operators need to be successful seven days a week,” said David Schreibman, executive vice president of strategy and business development, US Foods. “Designed to be easy and intuitive for our customers and to ensure great value, CHEF’STORE makes getting the right products at the right prices easier than ever for chefs.”
The 31,000 square-foot store employs about 30 local residents and membership is free. CHEF’STORE is conveniently located at 515 West I-240 Service Road in Oklahoma City and easily accessible from anywhere in the area.
“Chefs and restaurant owners in Oklahoma city are looking for an easier, more convenient way to get the products they need at competitive prices,” said Greg Schaffner, US Foods Southwest region president. “CHEF’STORE’s unique intuitive layout and wide aisles help customers find what they need quickly so they can get back to their restaurants instead of spending time looking for products and standing in long check-out lines.”
As a food safety leader, US Foods made this a top priority when designing CHEF’STORE. The store’s temperature controlled areas ensure that food is always kept at its proper temperature. In addition, through its Stay Cool™ program, CHEF’STORE provides complimentary freeze gel packs and offers cooler bags and other products to ensure proper food temperature when customers transport perishables.
“We’ve designed every aspect of CHEF’STORE to cater to operators’ needs and make the shopping experience as easy as possible,” Schreibman said. “With all the top selling US Foods products and other essential items our customers need in both individual and case quantities, our customers can rest assured that the quality products they need and expect from US Foods are always available.”
The Oklahoma City location is the second CHEF’STORE from US Foods. The first CHEF’STORE opened in Charlotte, North Carolina in November 2012 to positive responses from the local restaurant operators and the Charlotte community.
