Chef Works, the global leader in culinary and hospitality apparel, is thrilled to be the official culinary apparel sponsor for the Women Chefs & Restaurateurs Conference this month in Minneapolis.

“The Chef Works’ team is elated to support and celebrate some of the most innovative and influential women in the culinary industry,” said Marcee Katz, director of innovation and opportunity for Chef Works. “We’re honored to serve as the 2018 Chef Apparel Sponsor.”

Additionally, Chef Works is contributing $5,000 as a cash sponsor for the event, which will be held April 21-23 at Aria and St. Paul’s College.

Among those in attendance will be celebrity chef and Chef Works’ influencer Elizabeth Falkner.

“All the chefs are decked out in fashionable jackets and aprons by Chef Works, the chef’s favorite to cook in,” Falkner said.

Chef Works is one of the few culinary apparel manufacturers that offer a full line of clothing specifically designed for women. This includes chef coats, aprons, shirts and pants.

“For too long women were resigned to wearing chef coats, aprons, shirts and pants that were either unisex or made for men,” said Amanda Stuckey, vice president of marketing for Chef Works. “We recognized this inconsistency more than a decade ago and ever since we’ve dramatically expanded our line of functional, fashion-forward apparel that caters to women in the industry.”

Many of Chef Works’ most popular items will also be on display in a wide range of styles and colors. Plus, two brand ambassadors from Chef Works will be showcasing our latest female fit, so you’ll be able to find the Chef Works gear that is the perfect size for you.
