Our Story

Our story

Express Chef Limited began in 1991 supplying fresh chilled products to hotels, restaurants, casinos, sports venues, conference centres and contract caterers.

We soon realised that there was a demand for fresh handmade patisserie, due to the trend of closing down “in house” pastry sections. To meet this demand we decided to open our own wholesale pastry kitchen.

We have expanded our production capability considerably since those early days, without compromising our ideals of making hand made products using traditional methods and quality fresh ingredients.

Our comprehensive product range is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our clients, with our award winning Head Chef Franz Liemann using his vast knowledge and skill to develop new and exciting products.

In addition to our standard range we offer a bespoke service. Our clients find this service invaluable as it enables them to have products made to their exact specification and thus enabling them flexibility when designing menus.

Express Chef began its journey in Park Royal, West London. Over the past thirty years we’ve developed our business from a London specific service to a full national service.

We provide nationwide scheduled deliveries using our refrigerated vans every day.

We are accredited to the higher level of CMI for food safety, and are regularly audited by independent inspectors for compliance to these standards.
