    Cambro Eats - Kix Nystrom

    On this episode of Cambro Eats, I had the pleasure of interviewing Chef Kix Nystrom.



    Chef Kix is the Senior VP of Kitchen Operations at The Cheesecake Factory. And quite unusual in the world of foodservice is the fact that he's been with The Cheesecake Factory for over 30 years! Chef Kix has been with The Cheesecake Factory since their 5th store opening and over that time has seen the company grow to over 300 global locations and several new concepts.



    In this inteview Chef talks about getting started in foodservice at an early age and finding his way to The Cheesecake Factory.



    Cambro has had a great relationship with him and the entire team at The Cheesecake Factory for many years.



    Fun fact: Cambro Camshelving Premium Series was first put into test at The Cheesecake Factory in Marina Del Ray, Calif. over 20 years ago and it's still there!















    Enjoy the show!

    Cambro Eats - Hedley&Bennett - Ellen Marie Bennett

    In this episode of Cambro Eats, we talk to Ellen Marie Bennett. One of the great things about the foodservice community is how entrepreneurial it is and it is inspiring to talk to many of them. Ellen started her business, Hedley&Bennett, while working at a restaurant. As with many entrepreneurs she saw a common issue that no one else was addressing and decided to jump in. With the determination she made Hedley&Bennett the premiere name in restaurant-quality aprons.



    The Hedley&Bennett brand is the favorite of industry pros, and many celebrity chefs like Martha Stewart, Alton Brown, Roy Choi. The company manufacturers in downtown Los Angeles. Ellen is passionate about helping people with business-ideas to make the leap into making those ideas reality - she has a book called Dream First, Details Later launching in April 2021.



    During the pandemic, Hedley&Bennett donated 500,000 masks to front line workers, hospitals, restaurants and charities.
