Our Story


Higher standards.

It’s what separates the good companies from the great ones. UA Brands takes tremendous pride in our mission to do things differently than the rest.

Exceeding customer expectations

Over the past 30 years, our name has been synonymous with fashion-forward specialty apparel at great values; long-lasting product performance and above all, strong customer satisfaction. We treat customers warmly, respectfully and fairly…always striving to surpass their expectations.

We’ve grown from a single South Florida uniform store in 1985 to 29 locations across the U.S.; multiple e-commerce website and catalog operations; six corporate divisions; and hundreds of employees strong.

Our customers are diverse and South Florida’s diverse population base is a natural fit. We hire people from many places with lots of different backgrounds. This rich diversity has created the company we are today and helped build our outstanding service reputation with so many customers.  We’re very proud of our South Florida roots.

It’s all thanks to our talented team members, who include:

  • Our personable, knowledgeable retail store team that brings the UA Brands shopping experience to life for hundreds of thousands of customers working in vital industries like healthcare and food service.
  • Our efficient, hard-working distribution team, based in Lithia Springs, Georgia, that makes sure the right products are picked, carefully packed and shipped to thousands of customers quickly and efficiently.
  • Our corporate team based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that supports us with design, manufacturing, inventory management, sales, technology, human resources, marketing, customer service and financial expertise to keep us running smoothly and successfully.
  • UA Brands International based in Pune, India is an operations center that contributes to IT, Creative, and other technical and administrative functions. This exciting global expansion of UA Brands allows us to focus on unique perspectives and our global competitive advantage.
