OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (February 28, 2013)—US Foods has opened a new Chef'store location in Oklahoma City. The wholesale food and restaurant supply store concept features 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, as well as everyday consumers.
“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.
The 31,000 square-foot store employs about 30 local residents and membership is free.
The company made food safety a top design priority. 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.
The Oklahoma City location is the second Chef'store from US Foods. The first location opened in Charlotte, North Carolina in November 2012.
