Hobart Warewashers Earn ‘Best in Class’ Award
TROY, Ohio – October 24, 2013 – Hobart recently received the top ranking in the dishwasher/warewasher category of the 2013 Foodservice Equipment and Supplies survey of foodservice consultants, dealers and operators.
“We are honored to be ranked best in class in this category for the second year in a row,” said Praveen Reedy, vice president and general manager, Hobart/ITW Food Equipment Group Warewash and Waste. “For more than eight decades, Hobart has been the most trusted and reliable name in commercial dishwashing, with award-winning units for every type of kitchen environment, from undercounter and door-type, to conveyor- and flight-type warewashers. Our latest model, the Advansys LXe undercounter has been recognized for its reduced energy and water consumption.”
In addition to recognizing Hobart as “Best in Class” in the overall dishwasher/warewasher category, the magazine reported results from the individual audience groups that contributed to the survey. All three groups—dealers, operators and consultants—each voted Hobart dishwashers/warewashers as “Best in Class” for their own categories.
Foodservice Equipment and Supplies partnered with an international research firm to survey its subscribing dealers, operators and consultants. The survey results determined the winners in various industry categories, based on seven key criteria:
- Product quality
- Product value
- Product design and aesthetics
- Service and support
- Sales representation
- Product inventory and availability
- Availability of product information
