Yuppiechef MD Andrew Smith (far left), Product Director Shane Dryden (centre) and Marketing Director Paul Galatis offer their 2012 trend forecasts. Is online shopping here to stay? It’s the future of commerce. In SA we are a few years behind the rest of the world but we’re catching up fast. Benefits of online shopping? The ability for every person in SA, no matter where they live, to have access to a great range of products, delivered free to their door is a fantastic convenience. Your bestselling item? The KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer and items from the Le Creuset range. What distinguishes Yuppiechef from the competition? We have an exceptional range of products that are tough to find together in one place anywhere else in the country. But our biggest differentiator is customer service: we deliver free of charge regardless of order size and we handwrite a thank you card with all deliveries. Yuppiechef has won ‘Best E-commerce Site in South Africa’ in the SA E-commerce Awards two years consecutively.
