Font and color

The Chef Boyardee wordmark is executed in two styles: elegant cursive for the “Chef” in small letters is placed above the bold straight sans-serif of “Boyardee” in all capitals, but with the first “B” and last “E” slightly enlarged.

The company stopped using the Italian flag tricolor for its logo’s background, but green, white and red are still the main colors of the Chef Boyardee’s visual identity.

White lettering on a green background and the red Chef’s tie create a bright and welcoming combination, celebrating Italian cuisine and fresh tastes.
