We believe in independents
Thousands of products. Local suppliers and stores. Next day & same day delivery.
Chef Market was founded with a passion for local restaurants and a lofty objective: to provide wholesale delivery for restaurants, bars, caterers, coffee shops, and other small food businesses in as little as 2 hours.
Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: the scheduled delivery distribution model with high minimum orders doesn’t fully meet the fluid demands of independent restaurants.
As a local restaurant owner herself, Wendy (founder of Chef Market) saw the challenges chefs faced due to being shorted products from their regular suppliers, chasing down specialty items or driving around to pick-up additional items when sales were much different than expected.
We started Chef Market to fill that gap.
Chef Market steps outside the traditional model with an on-demand delivery service. Our independent drivers pick up from will-call at a dozen wholesale suppliers and shop at wholesale and specialty stores, so you can easily order and get delivery of those missing items. And our flat pricing means even the smallest businesses have access to a wide range of products at affordable prices.
There’s nothing complicated about it. We believe in independents.
Independent restaurants and local suppliers ❤️ Chef Market because we’re never done growing. We are continually adding new quality suppliers, unique products, and more features.
