Elevate Your High Chairs

The Foodie Booster was an idea that founder, Ross Van den Akker, had while working as the service manager of a high-volume family restaurant in Southern California. One Mother’s Day, the rental company supplying the restaurant with additional high chairs was unable to fulfill their order. The restaurant was limited to the eight they stored in the employee restroom off the back patio.

Ross realized that it wasn't so much the shortage of high chairs as much as the design that was problematic. It was the added time necessary to find, retrieve, and transport available high chairs to tables that needed them. On that day, he set out to create a better restaurant high chair.

The Foodie Booster was announced at the 2018 National Restaurant Association Show and started shipping in January, 2019. The Foodie Booster meets ASTM F404-18 safety guidelines that all high chairs must meet starting June 19, 2019.

  • The much anticipated Foodie Booster is now shipping and makes the storage and portability of restaurant high chairs easier while most traditional designs don’t meet new safety requirements

    LOS ANGELES, CA, JANUARY 23, 2019: The Foodie Booster is a sleek low-profile foldable restaurant high chair constructed from beechwood hardwood and matte black food-safe plastic. Hidden stainless steel hardware ensures easy clean up and debris-free joints. Its patented single action fold is both safe and intuitive. The Foodie Booster meets new ASTM F404-18 safety guidelines that become required for all high chairs being sold starting June 19, 2019.

    Rows of stacked high chairs that block walkways and fill restroom stalls have become a restaurant norm. In addition to being unattractive, these stacked high chairs are also unsafe to restaruant employees and detrimental to efficient operations. Watching employees kick open doors while carrying bulky traditional high chairs in front of them is a common scene during busy brunch shifts, as are high stacks of greasy particle board units with loose joints lining guest walkways and storage areas.

    Because the Foodie Booster folds flat, multiple units may be kept behind or near a restaurant’s host stand. When folded and leaned again a wall, the Foodie Booster sticks out just seven inches; and at ten pounds, it’s light and easy to transport. With a Foodie Booster in one hand and menus in the other, separate trips to pre-set high chairs can be eliminated. For establishments that still wish to pre-set high chairs, units may be kept in more accessible locations.

    The Foodie Booster can by purchased at https://foodiebooster.com/buy for $189, including free shipping. See the Foodie Booster in person at Booth 816 during the New England Food Show for special pricing! The Foodie Booster comes preassembled and includes a one year warranty.
