TEMPE, Ariz. -- Valley chefs, both professional and amateur, have a new place to shop! Heidi Goitia visited the brand new "CHEF'STORE" to show us what foodies can find there.
US Foods, one of the nation's leading food suppliers, recently opened the new location on McClintock Drive and Southern Avenue in Tempe. The store not only serves professional chefs and restaurateurs. It's also open to the public, and provides local foodies with a place to shop for restaurant products.
This is the country's fourth CHEF'STORE. It occupies a 60,000 square foot space, and employs 40 local community members. It offers more than 6,000 items.
There's something here for anyone and everyone who prepares and serves food. "Churches, fire houses, school organizers. Many, many operators take advantage of us," says Michael Ayers, CHEF'STORE manager. "We sell truffle oils, gourmet cheeses, and certified Angus beef as well."
