Gator Chef Opens Second Chicago Location

Gator Chef, a family owned and operated leading supplier in the foodservice industry, has opened a new location in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago.

The distributor and FEDA member boasts a knowledgeable staff with more than 100 years of combined industry experience. The company aims to meet the needs of its customers by supplying large and small products, following up with customers and offering tips, and including shipping costs in the bottom line price.

The new location, found just off the Kennedy Expressway between Addison and Belmont, is the second for Gator Chef and has a 7,500-square-foot showroom featuring a variety of new and used smallwares. It will serve local businesses in nearby neighborhoods by offering disposable items such as paper products, straws, and takeout containers readily available for purchase. On-hand industry experts will also be available to consult with restauranteurs and new business owners to help answer questions.

Gator Chef is excited to supply the city of Chicago and hopes to “better serve the local Chicago area with a range of items fit for any type of food establishment,” Sales and Operations Manager Michael Warton said.
