Rutter's Introduces Chef Coats Into Its Stores
YORK, Pa. — Beginning this month, Rutter’s Farm Stores is rolling out chef coats for all restaurant management. This includes restaurant managers, assistant restaurant managers, roving restaurant managers, and roving store managers.
According to the company, Rutter’s is the first in their competitive footprint to introduce chef coats into their kitchens.
For the restaurant management team, Rutter’s t-shirts are no longer part of the uniform. Instead, they will wear short-sleeve or long-sleeve chef coats.
"Rutter’s takes pride in not only our employees, but in our food options and restaurant focus. By upgrading to chef coats, we feel it differentiates us in the convenience store industry," said Ryan Krebs, director of foodservice. "It shows great professionalism and makes the statement that we offer the highest quality food options to our customers. It’s time to kick it up a notch!"
The Rutter’s chef coats are all black, feature the traditional double-breasted design and cloth buttons and are embroidered with Rutter’s branding.
"We have always been about fresh food, high quality, and innovation. Chef coats allow management leaders in foodservice to be easily recognized by customers. This aligns with restaurant-like mindedness and the expectation of excellence that our customers will recognize," added Derek Gaskins, chief customer officer.
York-based Rutter's is a family-owned convenience store chain operating more than 60 locations throughout central Pennsylvania.
