Hobart Announces Custom-Designed Mixer Giveaway Winner

TROY, Ohio (April 16, 2022) — Hobart, the premium commercial food equipment manufacturer known for designing and building some of the most reliable, must-have equipment, has announced Deborah St. Clair from Carota’s Pizza in Augusta, Ky. as the winner of its annual custom-designed mixer giveaway. The giveaway was held at the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas in March.

St. Clair, owner of Carota’s Pizza, won a Hobart® Legacy+® HL662 pizza dough mixer (valued at $35,000) that featured a martial art “DoughJo” design, complete with dragons and pizza slices. The Legacy+ HL662 mixer features the Hobart-exclusive VFDadvantage that provides high torque, low RPM speed for mixing continuous batches of pizza dough. Shift-on-the-Fly™ allows operators to gain productivity by making speed changes while the mixer is in operation, while a soft start technology gradually ramps up mixing to reduce ingredient splash-out and protect the motor. 

Hobart would like to congratulate St. Clair and the staff at Carota’s Pizza for being the proud new owners of the Legacy+ HL662 pizza dough mixer.
