Tell us about your business.

I’ve been cooking & standing in kitchens since the age of 11 in bakeries and restaurants in Florence, Italy and now here in the USA. While my time spent in kitchens pays off with big taste, extended standing has taken a serious toll on my feet, back, joints and limbs. This is why I am thrilled to finally introduce my first-ever product: Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats by Smart Step Home. Now, it’s possible to extend commercial-grade comfort and relief into the homes of my fans, friends, & fellow foodies (not to mention, my own kitchens) with Comfort Mats. After aching joints and muscle pains started taking the joy out of cooking, I decided to take matters into my own…feet…and partnered with Smart Step Home. After lining all of my restaurant kitchens with Smart Step, I finally found the relief I needed. Comfort mats are made with SmartTech Polyurethane therapeutic technology, made 100% in the USA, tear/puncture/spill resistant, antimicrobial, pet approved, & backed with a 7 year warranty.
