Practicing Radical Generosity in Our Corporate Giving

December 5, 2022 2 Views No comments

Corporate giving is baked into the DNA of our company. While we practice corporate giving year-round, it's especially top of mind this time of year.

So, we wanted to share some of the things we’re grateful for and causes we’re passionate about. It’s our way of encouraging everyone inside and outside our #FOHFAM to participate in radical generosity.

We have so many reasons to be grateful at FOH®!

Below are some of the most recent “feel good” moments we’ve been up to. We hope you enjoy learning more about how FOH® practices radical generosity.

Disclaimer: giving back is contagious!

1.Making a difference as a team

2.Encouraging our team members to donate to charities that resonate with them

3.Repurposing our products for the livelihood of others

4.Making time to listen to each other’s experiences in giving back

5.Honoring the positive effects that giving back has on our day to day

6.Communicating and connecting with a sense of gratitude

7.Respecting and understanding how the holiday season impacts us all differently

Our FOH® family made the time to gather as a corporation right before our Thanksgiving break to share some of the things we were grateful for in our personal and professional lives. This time of reflection may have been via a zoom meeting, but it brought us closer as a team and even brought some of us to tears. We gave ourselves the opportunity to dive into each other’s worlds and realize the overall difficulties some of our team members had to overcome in 2022.

We learned how little acts of kindness from other team members really made a difference! This realization made us aware of how valid our #FOHFAM values are. It reinforced our desire to continue practicing radical generosity during the holiday season and throughout the year.

Corporate Giving: Making a difference as a team

Each year, From our Hearts®, our corporate giving program donates thousands of dollars to worthy causes selected by a small group of FOH® team leaders. This year, we wanted each member to participate in the decision-making process, so we partnered with Groundswell. This giving app makes it easy to donate to worthy charitable causes. Our leadership team gave each team member $100 via the app to contribute to reasons they were passionate about.

The results?


Massive amounts of giving energy and thoughtful donations that truly define radical generosity.

As you can imagine, the charitable causes were as diverse as our team members. So far, our team has donated to 74 reasons and counting!

Here are some of the worthy causes we could donate to.

September 23, 2022 458 Views No comments

As part of our year-long 20th-anniversary celebration, we’re sharing the 20 years of inspiration plating food and what we have loved most over the last two decades — the people. We could not have reached this milestone without our excellent partners and are grateful to them for being an essential part of our journey.

“I have been a fan of FOH® for many years because their designs evolve with the food and the times, but their durability remains steady and constant throughout all collections.” – Chef Elizabeth Falkner, Celebrity Chef & Restaurateur

The Partner Lookbook.

To commemorate the occasion, we created the first ever Front of the House® Partner Lookbook: Anniversary Edition, a collection of partners who have grown with us and shine a light on our collections, plating food, with each of their creative presentations that tell a story. It highlights the people-to-plate inspiration and is the connection between the tabletop and the world's flavors.

The Lookbook is a tribute to the past, present, and future collaborations beginning with just a few of the long-time supporters.

“FOH® is always at the forefront of trends and every chef’s needs regarding all things china, glassware, and flatware. I love their creativity and the fact that they are dialed into the chefs’ perspectives. Family-owned and locally grown is like icing on the cake!!” – Chef Michael Schwartz, Restaurateur

Influential Individuals.

The Lookbook features 20 renowned chefs such as Jeremiah Tower, Elizabeth Falkner, Francios Payard, and Dayanny De La Cruz, with more from around the world.

We were thrilled and humbled to have them accept our invitation to be featured and share their passion for plating. The result was extraordinary, showcasing various plating food practices and genius, from Personal Chefs to James Beard Finalists to Winners to Michelin Starred experiences. The chefs elaborate on what vessels captured their attention and #perfectlyplated their creative vision on restaurant dinnerware.

Having the chance to understand their needs and wants has helped us design and deliver.

“I choose FOH® because it represents everything that makes me feel hopeful about the future. Our diversity and our strength come from places like FOH®. When it comes to the plating part, I look at all the things designed by FOH® as a colorful canvas for inspiration such as shape and texture.” – Chef Dayanny De La Cruz, Regional Executive Chef, Sodexo Live! & Executive Chef of Hard Rock Stadium, Miami

Beyond the Plate.

Reading through their testimonials confirmed what we have been working towards these twenty years; A genuinely collaborative partnership that transforms tabletops with quality, trend-forward designs and, most importantly, a commitment to sustainability.

“When aligning with companies, people, and products it is all about the bigger purpose. Front of the House understands that we need to humanize the experience. I have created long-lasting relationships that have shown up through every project, and every milestone, and am completely empathetic to the demands of this beautiful industry. When we put people before profit, profit follows. They [FOH®] are not just a supplier, they are part of a journey, and they are a part of our fabric of success. Their product, itself. is undeniably ahead of trends through constant evolution and innovation. This is a dream partnership that allows my full vision to come together”. – Chef Molly Demers, Climate Pledge Arena

​FOH®: Being a Diverse Supplier

September 8, 2022 535 Views No comments

Being a Diverse Supplier makes the right connections, develops innovative ideas, and discovers new opportunities with powerful partners. We feel fortunate and grateful to thrive amongst such diversity in our very own HQ in Miami, FL, known as the world's melting pot. Founders Simone Mayer was born in South Africa, and Mayda Perez is from Puerto Rico, coming from different backgrounds and traditions that only enrich our perspective of the world and guide our inspiration to design. This enables us to relate to all sorts of customs and cultures worldwide, influencing our designs to be as diverse as our people. We respect the inclusivity of all ages, genders, and skin colors that help shape our community of thinkers and doers in the foodservice and hospitality industry.

What is a Diverse Supplier?

A diverse supplier is a business at least 51% owned and operated by an individual or group that is part of a traditionally underrepresented or underserved group. Over time, the definition of diversity has w

Expanding to businesses owned by other minority groups, such as LGBTQ, veterans, and proprietors with disabilities encourages such use within an organization's supply chain.

Here are some of the leading diversity certifications that make a diverse supplier and which we check off :

✔ Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE)

To be certified by the NMSDC, a business must be at least 51% minority-owned, managed, and controlled. For NMSDC's program, a minority group member is an individual who is at least 25% Asian-Indian, Asian-Pacific, Black, Hispanic or Native American.

✔ LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE)

A certification from the NGLCC gives an LGBT-owned business a competitive edge and is known to help it stay in business longer than the average small business in America. This certification also involves a review by the NGLCC's National Certification Committee.

Disability-Owned Business Enterprise (DOBE)

Disability: In is the third-party nonprofit behind the certification of disability-owned businesses. To qualify, the business must be at least 51% owned, managed, or controlled by a person with a disability regardless of whether that business employs anyone with disabilities.

✔ Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE)

The WBENC is the gold standard and is most widely recognized for nationally certifying a women-owned business. It validates that a business is at least 51% owned, operated, controlled, and managed by a woman.

Veteran-Owned Business Enterprise (VBE)

The certification organization in charge of recognizing a small business that is 51% operated or owned by one or more U.S. military veterans is the NaVOBA. Its mission is to create corporate contracting opportunities for veterans through its certification process. The NVBDC is the third-party authority for certifying veteran-owned businesses of any size, not just small businesses.

**Others include:

Diverse Business Enterprise (DBE)

Historically Underutilized Business (HUB)

Small Business Enterprise (SBE)

Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB)

Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses (SDVOBs)

*This list is representative and does not include all the diversity certifications available.

How FOH® is a Diverse Supplier?

FOH® is proud to be recognized in this space as a diverse supplier. Our team does an excellent job at communicating our culture and core pillars to our community. We cultivate and create brand partnerships with similar companies that speak to the next generation of designers, chefs, and hospitality groups, including national companies like The James Beard Foundation and Marriott International, along with local restaurants, stadiums, clubs & universities, and healthcare facilities.

Expanding into so many different segments has allowed us to expand our reach and make an even more significant impact globally and locally. This is precisely why we believe it's our fundamental responsibility as a business, community, and family to be agents for change and practice diversity, inclusivity, and sustainability.

Diversity is at the core of our company's morals and ethics, as it strengthens our company culture, improves our brand recognition, and impacts our bottom line. Ultimately, this "breaks the cycle" of narrow views. An essential step in driving our business forward in a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive way is to make conscious decisions about the partners one chooses.

We know what it's like to be different.

Why is being a Diverse Supplier important?

Implementing a supplier diversity program has become a must-have in many U.S. companies because an inclusive procurement strategy widens the pool of potential suppliers and promotes competition in the supply base, which can improve product quality and drive down costs.

According to the * Billion Dollar Roundtable, 28 Fortune 500 companies spend at least $1 billion yearly on diverse vendors. Some of America's leading corporations are actively looking to spend money on diverse-owned businesses. So what does this mean? Being certified as a diverse supplier is more important than ever. Certification creates new business opportunities with more giant corporations and increases access to resources and support. It proves that your business is diverse, stable, and ready to take on new growth opportunities. It is an essential step for various small business owners looking to grow their businesses.

As a company, with our team and partners, we are proud and fortunate to celebrate and be able to raise awareness of such a significant movement. Operating authentically has allowed us to be recognized as Best Place to Work continuously since 2016. We are committed to finding innovative ways to remove barriers, encouraging existing suppliers to partner, and creating alliances with diverse-owned businesses.

In fact, in celebration of Pride month, we were featured as a diverse supplier with one of our Strategic Accounts - Compass Group, to help raise awareness this past June. Internally and externally, people are more conscious than ever. Compass Group felt this was an excellent opportunity to connect with their clients and showcase FOH® as a proud partner.

Our Guys: A Complete Tabletop Story

July 26, 2022 279 Views No comments

The launch of “Our Guys” new flatware category creates a whole new combination of possibilities with on-trend designs that tell a complete tabletop story! The 7 brand new collections are worthy of inclusion with each piece carefully thought out and executed to meet every customer’s needs with 60 skus and 12 finishes set a full array of tabletop options.

Defined by confident durability and distinctive design our Flatware collections vary in finishes, textures and form proving boldness is always in style. Each piece is manufactured with exceptional strength to ensure its structural integrity over time and wear while paving the way for a sensory experience like no other. It's love at first bite.

What’s even more interesting is the story behind the design.

With 20 years of manufacturing foodservice solutions, the timing was flawless according to founder Simone Mayer who says, “It’s always been there; it’s in our logo!”

Knowing flatware is an integral part of the dining experience, she [Simone] and the Product Development team took a look at how cutlery and utensils have evolved in recent years, and how to innovatively approach this category and potentially transform the restaurant industry forever. It’s little surprise that the designs and unique naming convention were next on the menu for food service disruption.

"Having a team directly at the factory is key." - Simone Mayer

Understanding the new generation of hospitality - hotels, and restaurants, FOH® takes the traditional outlook of commercial flatware as tools for eating and emphasizes the complete experience. The tabletop and buffet tell a “story” and, as part of this narrative, the knives, forks, spoons, and serving utensils need to be more individual and extravagant.

Game Changers.

Restaurant flatware typically feature five utensils: dinner fork, salad fork, dinner spoon, teaspoon and dinner knife, which “Our Guys” give prominence in each collection. Front of the House® flatware is designed with 18/10 stainless steel, which means the metal includes 18% chromium and 10% nickel; providing the highest resistance to rust and longest held polish. With Front of the House® fashion always meets function. Each matched with ergonomic design as it nestles comfortably in hands and fits precisely with dinnerware made for comfort and everyday use — is the perfect match for any meal.

Matte Brass Flatware.

Not your grandma’s gold.

The on-trend metallic color gives an elegant, shimmering finish on 18/10 stainless steel, which is impervious to the acids in foodstuffs and is perfectly paired for everyday luxury or glam occasions.

Look for: Luca, Parker, and Owen.

Black Flatware.

Goes with everything.

The bold color of black flatware enhances any aesthetic and intensifies the mix of elements, whether paired with the brightest white or black dinnerware and naturals.

Look for: Owen.

Textured Flatware.

Decorated modern fashion.

Bring one-of-a-kind appeal with striated and linear patterns that appear handcrafted.

Look for: Owen.

Antique, Brushed, and Duo Finish Flatware.

Distinct. Innovation.

This revolutionary muted matte finish saves time and energy, disguises any appearance of fingerprints.

Look for: Jasper, Grant, Luca, and Cameron.

Mirrored Flatware.


A shiny finish gives a classic look and feel that will not only last, but always be stylish.

Look for: Liam, Parker, and Cameron.

But, wait — what do we call them?!

In true disruptive fashion, it’s only suitable for this women-owned company to continue to rattle the male-dominated industry with bold collection names.

Reminiscent of classic male muses, each collection strongly identifies with its unique design. However, Cameron, Owen, Parker, Liam, Luca, Grant, and Jasper collectively all have one thing in common— the WOW FACTOR! which is officially served.

Perfectly Paired

Having such an essential category expands our range as manufacturers to take any project from start to finish.

With a full breadth of foodservice and hospitality solutions, it’s time to get creative with our collections and make your own flatware and dinnerware combination presentations that are chic without taking attention away from your plating.

Fork Yeah!

​Our Guys: Front of the House ® Flatware Launch

June 17, 2022 324 Views No comments

Good things take time, and on our 20th anniversary, we revealed a highly anticipated, first-ever Flatware launch at the 2022 NRA Restaurant Show. National Restaurant Association hosts the most significant event in the foodservice industry, which Front of the House® has attended for the past 20 years. Showcasing 60 SKUS, 7 Collections, and 12 Finishes, the unveiling of their commercial-grade flatware, “our guys” was impressive. What’s even more interesting is the story behind the design; as co-founder and CEO Simone Mayer says, “It’s always been there; it’s in our logo!”.

Design runs deep in Simone’s roots, being a second-generation manufacturer in her family. Her parents refined pulls and knobs in South Africa - where she was born. The experience gained from the family business was augmented during her studies at Columbia University and further when opening her first retail shop on South Beach. Our focus has always been to enhance the tabletop experience and strengthen the diversity of our solutions. This robust 60-piece flatware sku launch is designed to complement any tabletop, buffet, banquet, and more food service settings that #deliverthewow . Our attention to detail includes ergonomically designed handles to rest perfectly on a surface, and finishes that disguise fingerprints– just to name a few (we don’t want to give all the cool stuff away)...

Launching at the NRA Show was an epic celebration in itself. It marked our 20th show as an exhibitor and reconnecting with our community after three long years. Where else could we have made such an exclusive sneak peek to over 51,000 attendees?! To be there and unveil “our guys” was an experience for the masses.

Far more than perfunctory needs, (if we may say) have carefully designed a thought-through new category to bring not only the very best dining experience possible, but an innovative and stylish solution to the foodservice industry.

Naturally, all of The Guys Flatware collections are made with the highest quality stainless steel, ensuring top-of-the-line durability. The chromium and nickel (elements that make up stainless steel) levels of each SKU are higher than average, which creates more durability and better-equipped commercial-grade flatware for high-volume turnover. Additionally, the matte brass and matte black flatware pieces have a unique finish applied by a PVD technique. The PVD application is a chemical process that makes products durable by bonding with the stainless steel at the micron level instead of being coated on top. This level of detail is how FOH® continues to stand out and pave the way in manufacturing.

Defined by bold and timeless elements, The Guys: Flatware collection varies in finishes, textures, and styles. Each piece is manufactured with exceptional strength proving its structural integrity over time while paving the way for a sensory experience like no other. No detail was spared during the designing process of this new category, down to the naming of each collection. Reminiscent of classic male muses, each collection strongly identifies with the characteristics of a specific type of man. While Cameron, Owen, Parker, Liam, Luca, Grant, and Jasper collectively all have one thing in common, you may be surprised by the individual features of each collection.

Clever and bold, we encourage you to explore the details of the entire category of restaurant flatware at frontofthehouse.com or click here to download the brochure.

Stay tuned for pt. 2 of OUR GUYS: Behind the Scenes, where we take you on the creation of this exciting category through each departments POV.

FOH® x One Tree Planted

June 3, 2022 287 Views No comments

One tree planted at a time makes an impact! Approximately 20, 200 new saplings ( saplings are small trees usually between 1 and 4 inches in diameter at 4.5 feet) have been planted since 2021 on behalf of FOH®, our partners, and our team.

The initiative stems from our ongoing commitment to sustainability that is rooted and one we intend to grow. It’s one simple way FOH® can help reforestation across the globe.

Our partnership with One Tree Planted began when accepted the #MillionTreeChallenge, to restore National Forests across the United States. Million Tree Challenge members contribute to the reforestation of iconic forests that have been affected by natural conditions like wind damage, tree diseases, and forest fires. FOH®s proud to have completed, not 1 - but 2 challenges.

Last year, Diana Chaplin, who’s the Canopy Director at One Tree Planted, helped to host a lunch & learn for everyone at FOH.. She filled us in on the non-profit’s six pillars of reforestation — Air, Water, Biodiversity, Social Impact, Health, Climate — as well as some updated stats.

More recently, we teamed up once more however more locally with Miami Dade’s Million Tree initiative, a Neat Street program aiming to achieve a 30% tree canopy for our community. On May 12th, our FOH® Fam met at the Country Club of Miami’s South Park in Hialeah to plant 200 more saplings, including native Simpson’s and Spanish stoppers. It was a day of sun, sweat, and teamwork, as efforts contributed to a green screen for nearby neighbors. The park wide additions also provide cooling for walkways, mitigate flooding, filter storm water and provide habitat & food for wildlife.

As stated on their website:

"One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As an environmental charity, we're on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees!

Started in 2014, we have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, we now work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help us get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity."

Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. They also absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Trees even provide jobs to more than 1.6 billion people around the world.

Since One Tree Planted started in 2014 and planted 150,000 trees its first full year, their numbers have grown significantly. By 2019, for instance, they were able to get 4 million additional trees in the ground worldwide. In 2020, the count was more than 10 million trees planted in 28 countries. And by year-end 2021, the number was well over 23.5 million trees in 42 countries.

One Tree Planted educate new trees help stabilize the local climate, improve water and soil quality, reduce the risk of future fires, and improve habitat connectivity for native wildlife.

This mission is well aligned with the identity of our brand. Developing more than sustainable products, FOH® is dedicated to contributing to the overall longevity of our environment’s health.

The use of sustainable/renewable ingredient sources is essential to limit our environmental impact and to ensure the long term availability of our product lines.

We’re extremely proud to be contributing to One Tree’s total, and just getting started and excited to see how this partnership grows over time and look forward to transforming more urban spaces together!

Here's a #flashbackfriday of our team at work!
