Chefette

Frequently Asked Questions

How did the name Chefette originate?

The name Chefette was born from combining the words “Chef” (to cook) and “Fete” (to party).

Does Chefette offer a delivery service?

Chefette does not offer a delivery service as managing the quality of the numerous items on our menu would be extremely challenging in addition to the logistical challenges of offering this type of service.  Chefette’s strategy has instead been to offer added convenience by implementing Drive-Thrus in as many locations as possible and also having Hotlines for Pizza and the Barbecue Barn which can be used for take-away orders or pre-order eat-in.

Does Chefette offer franchising opportunities?

The question has been asked by many and numerous times over the years – when will Chefette open a location outside of Barbados?  The company is not ruling this option out.  The challenge with this has always been that much of Chefette’s success has been due to its staff and the way senior management keeps a hands-on approach to the daily operations of the restaurant chain.  If the company decides to go overseas, it must accept that it will need to change its current management style and structure but still offer the same great taste, flavour and wide choice menu to its customers.

What is a Roti?

The word roti, in the West Indies, refers to a dish of curried ingredients wrapped in a pastry which is generally made from wheat-flour, salt and water cooked on a large flat griddle.  Curry is now an international dish recognized around the world.  Curry powder available in the supermarkets is not a single spice but a blend of spices.  Curry powder is like chili powder in that everyone has their own recipe and each one is unique.  One common thread in many curry powder mixtures is turmeric, which gives curry its distinctive yellow colour.  Since 1972, Chefette has been serving mouth-watering tasty rotis to the Barbadian public and visitors at large.  Chefette’s rotis are made with genuine curry imported directly from India, the country that curry originated from.

Can Chefette rotis be purchased to take overseas?
