About CHEF ONE - Chinese dumplings

Explore Cultures All Over the World In One Bite.

Taking inspiration from different cultures around the world, Chef One has been New York’s staple provider of Chinese dumplings, egg rolls, and spring rolls since 1999. Focusing on high quality and exceptional taste, the Chef One team works continuously to develop and curate a perfect blend of authentic Asian recipes through fresh ingredients and delicious flavor. In just a few years, we became a leading Chinese food distributor, with our products featured in restaurants all over New York City.

Taking our love of dumplings to the next level, Chef One founded National Dumpling Day and the NYC Dumpling Festival in 2009, with all proceeds benefiting Food Bank for New York City. The festival serves as a celebration of all things dumpling, from its rich origin dating back 1000 years to the many variations of dumplings around the world. Along with its popular Dumpling Eating Contest, the festival has attracted thousands of dumpling lovers and has raised over $250,000 for charity.

Today, Chef One’s production continues to expand to meet the growing needs of our business, restaurant, and consumer clients. Armed with greater resources, our Asian food wholesale is now available throughout the US and internationally.

Chef One’s founding principle speaks to EVERYONE: the bustling restaurant, the high-volume food service business, and the individual preparing meals for the family. Our exciting flavors and easy preparation brings out the chef in everyone!

When we first began perfecting our dumplings and rolls, we knew how imperative it was to develop authentic flavors. But, how can a chef create that sense of authenticity in their own dishes? We answered that question by developing all our recipes through a fusion of cultural spices, seasonings, and ingredients. Chefs tell stories through their dishes, so we want to give everyone who buys our cuisine the chance to share and create their own story.

Today, Chef One has not only become one of the most well-known frozen food suppliers for restaurants, but an industry trusted name offering only the best Asian wholesale food.


Rolls and appetizers that are inspired by culinary diversity from around the world. Our core belief is that there is a chef in everyone, and with Chef One productsasy and the flavor never fails to inspire.

“Top-notch dumplings! This company produces savory, delicious, not overly spicy dumplings which make for perfect snacks/appetizers. Some are perhaps a bit too salty for my taste, but that's their only flaw. And as another Yelper pointed out, this is a philanthropic business which really helps out their community. As someone who was born and reared in Brooklyn, I can really appreciate that.”
