Chicopee® provides unrivaled expertise in wiping applications and industry-leading technology that delivers high quality products with enhanced characteristics, such as superior absorbency, strength, durability and softness.

In a recent poll, 68% of foodservice operators stated they were concerned about the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on wipes in the back of the house. And another 75% of operators stated they would be interested in having Microban® antimicrobial product protection built-in to wipes in the back of the house.

So Chicopee listened and incorporated Microban antimicrobial product protection into their line of Chix® Towels. Chix® Towels are manufactured with Microban protection to inhibit the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria on your towel. Surface disinfectants help eliminate bacteria during regular cleanings, while Microban technology provides an added level of cleanliness that helps to inhibit the growth of microbes between uses on the Chix® Towels. Microban protection is not designed to protect users from foodborne illness or replace normal cleaning practices. It is incorporated into Chix® Towels to provide an added level of cleanliness that keeps the foodservice towel cleaner between uses.


These towels combat the growth of odor and stain causing bacteria, yeast, mold and fungi which means your towels stay cleaner, longer.

Chix® towels stand out:

• Super Absorbent for Efficient Dirt Pick-Up

• Ribtech Pattern for Improved Scrub Ability

• Multi-Day Use & Machine Washable


Chicopee foodservice towels work hard at cleaning up messes so you don't have to!
