Hobart Awards CL44e Warewasher to Lovejoy Independent School District



Hobart today awarded Lovejoy Independent School District in Allen, Texas, with the grand prize from Hobart’s “Win a Free CLe” video contest—a new CL44e Warewasher with free installation by Hobart. The announcement was made virtually via Hobart’s Web site and also broadcast from Hobart’s trade show booth at the 2009 North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers Show (NAFEM).

The second-place winner, Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, won a five-year extended service warranty from Hobart. Canterbury Woods, a retirement community located in Pacifica, Calif., took third place and won a 42-inch flat-screen television.

All entries were judged on creativity (weighted 40 percent), best illustration or demonstration of product information and benefits (40 percent), and promotional benefit (20 percent). The videos were anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes in length and included at least one of the following CLe Warewasher benefits: energy and water efficiency/saving, ease of use or productivity.

The contest was open to all foodservice and food retail business entities, including but not limited to K-12 schools, colleges and universities, healthcare facilities, correctional institutions, restaurants and grocers.
