Interested in Greening Your Commercial Kitchen? Enter to Win $40,000 in Equipment
The folks over at Food Service Warehouse are celebrating the announcement of their Certified Green Commercial Kitchens program by announcing a green commercial kitchen contest, with $40,000 worth of kitchen equipment and supplies going to the winner. If you operate a commercial kitchen and have taken steps to make it greener, fill out the form by October 31 to enter the contest. It’s free and the prizes include a refrigerator/freezer, steamer, fryer, ice machine, oven, and more.
Food Service Warehouse is an online source for commercial kitchen equipment that has taken impressive steps in encouraging green commercial kitchen practices. They have devoted dozens of pages to explaining the advantages of going green and giving practical advice on how to achieve it.
Their Certified Green Commercial Kitchen Program encompasses five categories: energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction, green cleaning, and green education. Points for each category can be earned through purchases of green products, and completion of each category earns customers discounts, extended warranties, and publicity, among other things.
Food Service Warehouse offers products certified by national programs like ENERGY STAR, Green Seal, and Totally Chlorine Free. Their Certified Green Commercial Kitchen Program is available for those who purchased from FoodServiceWarehouse.com as well as those who purchased their green equipment elsewhere. Those interested in an additional national green commercial kitchen program should also check out the Green Restaurant Association certification.
If you know someone who might be interested in getting a whole new green commercial kitchen, forward this post along.
