Become a Preferred Supplier

Buyers for restaurants, catering companies, cafeterias, airlines and other foodservice operations take a number of different factors into account when it comes to deciding on partner suppliers. While cost, availability and personal relationships may rank high in terms of considerations to take into account, operators know quality and taste will go a long way in getting customers to return. Recognition from ChefsBest as meeting quality standards for excellence in any given category can provide an edge your brand needs among buyers. According to a survey by Foodservice Equipment & Supplies, 1 in 5 operators switch vendors up annually.

Build Credibility in the Food Industry

The vast majority of foodservice decision makers conduct their own research before contacting potential suppliers. Holding recognition by ChefsBest as a high-quality or award-winning product can give your brand an edge before you even come in contact with a potential client. And with only one Excellence Award available in each product category, that recognition can’t be matched by your competitor.

Approval by Chefs for Chefs

ChefsBest enlists executive-level chefs to participate in blind tasting sessions where brands are evaluated to determine whether they meet quality standards of excellence. Brands honored with the Excellence Award hold the quality that other chefs nationwide want for their facilities, and the taste that customers desire.
