KNG announces partnership with American Culinary Federation

The major provider of chef wear and server uniforms is now an official logo licensing partner and will unveil a new line of made-to-order executive chef coats at the ACF National Convention.

NAMPA, Idaho (June 27, 2012) – KNG Inc., which is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of restaurant goods, has entered into a comprehensive partnership with the American Culinary Federation, the nation’s foremost professional organization for chefs and cooks.

A major provider of chef wear and server uniforms (as well as menu covers and restaurant supplies), KNG will serve as the official logo licensing partner of ACF and its affiliate organizations, and will offer a line of executive chef coats exclusively for ACF members.

“We’re honored to be aligned with the premier trade association of the culinary industry and supply its members chef wear embroidered with the prestigious ACF insignia,” said Peter Buzzard, KNG’s vice president of sales and marketing.

At the ACF National Convention in Orlando on July 15-16, KNG will be an exhibitor and unveil a new line of performance chef wear and the industry’s first made-to-order tailored executive chef coats.

“The chef coat is more than just a functional garment in the kitchen; it is the professional suit for executive chefs and sous chefs. Today, chefs order a standard size of a mass-produced coat, so it never fits quite right,” Buzzard explained. “Our new Tailored Chef executive chef coats will be custom made to exact measurements from premium cotton, and offer chefs a selection of styles, buttons, piping and pocket placement. For the first time ever, executive chefs will be able to buy a custom tailored chef coat for the price of a mass-produced coat.”

KNG is the world’s preeminent menu cover manufacturer and a major provider of chef wear, server uniforms, and restaurant supplies.  Founded in 1965, the company has more than 100,000 hospitality clients worldwide, including such leading operators as Pizza Hut, T.G.I.
