In 2003, while living in Weston, Massachusetts, Averill Bromfield stumbled upon his (now very successful) online uniform business. You may be asking yourself how he stumbled into this line of online retail. Well, Averill wasn’t always providing businesses and their staff with sharp looking uniforms. Around the time dot-com businesses started to become popular, he was providing restaurants with sharp knives, through his company The Sharper Knife, Inc.
The world of knives wasn’t growing fast enough for this dapper dressing man, and he had a family to support. Luckily, he came across an executive chef who asked him to source red baggy chef pants. After sourcing pants from a few uniform companies Averill began selling a complete line of uniforms for chefs, cooks and other kitchen staff. He later added his line of kitchen apparel to the Sharper Knife website.
Later, after designing server bib aprons with a company’s logo displayed on the front, business began to take a turn for the better and soon thereafter, Averill changed the name of his dot-com company from The Sharper Knife, Inc., to Averill’s Sharper Uniforms. As business grew for his once small company, he hired employees to help him take care of customers.
Averill’s Sharper Uniforms now carries a large assortment of uniforms for various businesses and companies including hospitality uniforms, wait staff uniforms, security uniforms, housekeeping uniforms and more!
