Back-2-Front has evolved!

Same great service, same outstanding reputation, same amazing staff… different name!

Let’s get you where you’re going…

Back-2-Front is now ‘The Chef Tree’

The Chef Tree grew from Back-2-Front, a highly successful hospitality recruitment agency, based in the South West. Formed in 2009, Back-2-Front, as the name suggests, offered both chef and waiting staff to businesses throughout the South West. From 2014 the business evolved to focus solely on chef recruitment. As Managing Director Pete Cann explains;

“We had built up a very successful business but by 2014 it was clear that the chef side of the business was where our true passions lay.
We’ve had chefs who have been with us for 8 to 9 years and customers using our chefs for the same amount of time.
The chefs and customers feel like part of the family and so we want to recognise this by rebranding ourselves so there can be no doubt; we are all about experienced and professional chefs who share our values.”

If you’re looking to hire a chef then we supply chefs for businesses, individuals and events across the region, providing you with the perfect chef to cater for your specific needs.

If you want to deal with the region’s leading recruitment agency, with over 25 years industry experience and the know-how to meet your private and business catering requirements, whether it be part-time, temporary or relief Chef cover, then talk to us.

Our chefs have extensive skills and knowledge which is why our chef agency has been able to provide chefs for some of the most famous hotels, restaurants and venues in the South West.

Our customers expect the highest standard of chef recruitment at their venues and that is why we are the first choice for all their staffing needs.

We will always be upfront and honest with you throughout the whole recruitment process and are always on the phone to talk through any of your questions.

You want a chef who is:

The Chef Tree portal is really simple to use, you can check whom you have booked in and sign timesheets.

They send chefs in for training, no agency has ever done that, the Chef Tree have taken the time to get it right.
