Spectracom is a small family
business, owned by a wife and husband team
- DeLawn and Kevin. We are located in Phoenix,
ago, DeLawn was a food server at Steamers,
an upscale seafood restaurant in Phoenix.
Because the restaurant was short on aprons,
she was given one that was used and worn out.
After her shift, she asked permission to make
her own apron (her college education was in
clothing design). Steamers management said
okay as long as it matched the fabric used
by the rest of the staff.
The next day
she went to the fabric store and matched the
material. She then went to work designing
an efficient and durable apron. After many
prototypes, she came up with a design that
included all of her goals, reinforced corners,
very tight stitching, long finished tie strings,
cut wider to look better on anyone with hips
and of course the very unique pocket design.
Food servers just love the deep and multiple
pockets. The design helps them be more efficient
and since our aprons are built to last, they
look better at their tables night after night.
At work, other
food servers wanted to buy her aprons. Steamers
management then started to place orders. From
there on the business grew as more restaurants
started to order for their food servers and
bus staff. Over time, she developed more styles
of aprons, all utilizing the unique pocket design.
One side note
to our story, Steamers restaurant still orders
their Long Black Bistro aprons from us, over
16 years now!
