Footwear for the Food Industry
This entry was posted on December 11, 2012 by admin.
Whether you’re employed at a four star gourmet eatery or a fast-food establishment, all restaurant workers have to deal with the challenges of constantly being on their feet. You have to avoid slips, trips and falls in busy kitchen and dining areas. Then there’s the physical wear and tear of standing during shifts that can last eight, ten hours or even longer. When it comes to foodservice, having the proper footwear is essential.
The federal government certainly recognizes this point. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration , restaurant workers should wear sturdy footwear that is slip resistant and not canvas or open-toed to protect the feet in case hot liquids are spilled on shoes. That’s where Abbadabba’s comes in, providing food industry professionals with the best variety of high performance footwear for the job.
“Abbadabba’s carries numerous non-slip, supportive and comfortable footwear options for people working in the restaurant industry,” explains Director of Store Development Jade Regotti. “We have trained our staff how to help customers choose the right shoe for their needs.”
All five Abbadabba’s stores carry a strong selection of footwear options for restaurant employees. Brands that have proven to be especially popular include Dansko, Birki’s Professional Clogs by Birkenstock and KEEN’s, Sanita and Merrell’s Encore Groove Pro and Encore Moc Pro.
Erin Stacer, who works at Jittery Joe’s coffee shop in Athens, alternates between favorite pairs of Dansko Harlows and Birkenstock Boston clogs to keep her feet going at work. “Abbadabba’s taught me to look for shoes that support my arches and cradle my heel so I don’t roll my ankles,” notes Erin. “Their staff is really helpful. They learn so much about their brands and always help you find the best shoe for your needs.”
Chef Matthew Murphy of Three Blind Mice restaurant in Lilburn couldn’t agree more. “I cannot imagine wearing a regular shoe, as most days have me on my feet at least 12 hours,” noted the fan of KEEN’s. ”Abbadabba’s helps me find clogs that are comfortable, non-slip, and take some of the weight off my feet. They get me in and out of the store fast.”
We have a long history of helping people find innovative, comfort footwear options for work, school and personal time. Visit one of our stores today to see how we can give you the proper support for your feet when you are working to serve others all day long.
