Meet Our Students

When Triton College student Zee Bhimani was pursing Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management degrees in Triton's Hospitality Industry Administration program, he searched for an affordable source for chef uniforms he needed for class. In the process, he discovered a profitable market and hasn't looked back since.

Bhimani, assisted by a friend, began selling chef uniforms at reasonable prices. Bhimani developed, Zee's Apparel, LLC, which offers custom screen printing, embroidery and promotional products. The business has received praise from customers for their products' affordability and quality. He's even provided his products to Triton.

"Working in my family's restaurants growing up, I became very passionate about food, marketing, sales and graphic design," Bhimani said, "and I figured out how to tie all of it into this business.

"Triton gave me a solid foundation to continue my career in hospitality and allowed me to pursue my passion. Although I have left cooking professionally temporarily, I am active within the industry.

Bhimani intends to expand his businesses with the intention of turning it into a nationally recognized company.
