Do All Restaurants Provide Uniforms?

Joined Aug 19, 2017
Hello fellow chefs,
Recently i move to Stockholm (Sweden) but could not bring my chef jackets and equipment with me. i am trying to buy it from store but after a hours of google search can not find any place to buy chef equipment and jackets. One of my friend (who is in different profession) told me, company will provide it. so my question is:
A. Is all the restaurant, cafe or hotel provide chef equipment?
B. If not, where can i buy those in Stockholm city or close to the place?

Have a great day guys

They have everything. Chef clothing is usually provided by your employer in Sweden. Some places have house knives but most don't. Like any tradesmen you need to have your own basic tools of the trade. Ie carpenter has a hammer, chef has a knife.

When I was working in Switzerland and France I brought my own uniforms and knives. You only need 2-3 pairs of paints and at least 4 jackets.
