Customer Profile

  • Headquartered in Sandusky, OH
  • Founded in 1983
  • 13 land and water parks located
    in ten states and Canada
  • 41,000+ seasonal employees

From park operators and managers to quick-service restaurant staff, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company goes through a lot of uniforms.

With 13 land and water parks throughout the US and Canada, including Kings Dominion, Cedar Point, and Knott's Berry Farm, the company was struggling with operational challenges and keeping up with the demand of their rotating seasonal employees.

With over 41,000 employees, Cedar Fair needed an ordering platform that accurately displayed and tracked their various uniform types, from polos and chef coats to aprons and caps.

Program Needs

Easy to order snag resistant and moisture wicking uniforms.

Our initial consultations with Cedar Fair uncovered several issues that our uniform program would need to address. Firstly, the current uniforms were 100% polyester polo. While this may sound nice, employees were constantly snagging the shirts, producing loose threads or small holes, and ultimately would require replacement. With over 41,000 employees, uniform replacement costs can add up.

Additionally, they needed an ordering platform that accurately displayed and tracked their various uniform types including food service uniforms like chef coats, bib aprons, and caps, and branded management attire.

Our Solutions

Cedar Fair reported significant savings due to the improved durability of their uniforms.

We presented the parks with our Dri-Express snag-resistant, 100% moisture-wicking polo. In independent lab testing, the polos scored the highest possible 5 out of 5 for snag-resistance, so we knew they would be the perfect fit for active park employees. Employee feedback included comments like, “I tried to snag the shirt and I couldn’t,” “I washed the shirt and the stains came right out,” and “it’s basically sweatproof.” Along with high satisfaction ratings from their associates, Cedar Fair reported significant savings due to the improved durability of their uniforms.

Ukrop’s Threads has been an outstanding partner for us, and I’d highly recommend them. Since going with Ukrop’s, they’ve streamlined our process, everything comes in on time, and most importantly, all of our employees are really happy with the fit and comfort level of the uniforms that they provide.”
